Yes, 21 Savage's New Album is Actually Entitled 'Issa Album'


21 Savage, our pick for best new artist of 2016, is getting ready to release his first full-length album in 2017.

Early Thursday morning (February 9), the artist himself tweeted that the album is coming "very very soon." 

Exciting. But is the album actually going to be titled Issa Album?

According to 21's manager, Kei Henderson, yes.

The album is entitled 'Issa Album.' That's all the details we're releasing.

For those of our readers who don't frequent VladTV, the source material for the title Issa Album is a quote from a 2016 interview, during which the rapper revealed that the tattoo between his eyes is, in fact, a knife and not a cross.

While we don't have a release date for 21's follow-up to last year's acclaimed Savage Mode album with producer Metro Boomin, we do know that thanks to the project's success—"X" (featuring Future) and "No Heart" have both been certified Platinum by the RIAA—it will be released on EPIC, who recently signed the 24-year-old Atlanta native to a recording contract.
