Towards the end of last year, 21 Savage contributed a new solo record to the soundtrack for the latest Mortal Kombat game’s trailer. Known as “Immortal,” the song provided a concise showcase of 21 Savage’s gritty signature stylings, but hasn’t been available for standalone, high-quality, traditional streaming and listening until now. Considering its sinister sound, the Kid Hazel-produced “Immortal” couldn’t have received a better release date, with Halloween night almost here. More than just a manufactured, assembly-line track for a big-budget, radio-friendly soundtrack, “Immortal” is proof of 21 Savage’s effectiveness as a rapper and his growing creative development.
“Draco get to kickin’ like Liu Kang (21) / F&N on me in the Mulsanne (Straight up, straight up) / Glock 19 and a blue flame (Straight up, straight up) / I was strapped when I slid inside your boo thang (On God),” 21 Savage raps on “Immortal.” “21 immortal, we’ll never die (21) / Loyal to my brothers (Yeah), I’ll never lie (On God) / Call me bird dog ’cause I cheat, and I’m fly (Straight up) / And I love winnin’, I’m upset if it’s a tie (On God) / Get you off the ground just to knock you to the floor (Yeah) / Let’s go blow for blow (Yeah), let’s go toe to toe (Straight up).”
