After months of overwhelming fan anticipation, 21 Savage uncovers the cinematic music video for his chart-dominating RIAA platinum-certified smash “Bank Account” today.
The clip makes the wait completely worthwhile! Starring comedy legend Mike Epps [The Hangover, Next Friday], the visual brings “Bank Account” to life with big screen-ready action and humor in every frame. Channeling Die Hard with a Savage twist, it begins with Epps strolling up to an office building carrying an oversized teddy bear. Soon, he notices that all is not as it seems, and the rapper’s gun-toting henchmen have taken hostages. He springs to the rescue only to be surprised once again… You’ll have to watch it to find out more.
The video’s premiere rounds out a fall victory lap for 21 Savage. Last week, he unloaded Without Warning [Slaughter Gang/Epic Records], and it bowed at #4 on the Billboard Top 200 with just three days of sales/consumption counting toward the chart. Following the runaway success of his debut Issa Album, it marks his second Top 5 debut in one year. Moreover, it received a staggering 8.0-rating from Pitchfork in addition to universal acclaim courtesy of Consequence of Sound, XXL, HotNewHipHop, and many others.
Next week, 21 Savage embarks on the Numb The Pain Tour, beginning November 16 in Austin, TX at Stubb’s with support from Youngboy NBA. The full itinerary can be found below. Most dates are already sold out!
21 Savage’s reign in blood and racks has only just begun. Expect many more surprises in 2018 and beyond.
Multi-platinum certified rapper, artist, and visionary 21 Savage remains downright unstoppable. Recently, he teamed up with Post Malone for the platinum-certified mega-smash “rockstar,” achieving his first Billboard Hot 100 #1 in the process. Meanwhile, his full-length debut, Issa Album, stands out as one of the year’s biggest success stories. It clinched #2 on the Billboard Top 200 upon arrival, moving over 77,000 copies first-week. It also went #1 on the Apple Music Hip-Hop/Rap Chart. The lead single “Bank Account” earned an RIAA platinum certification and also peaked at #12 on the Billboard Hot 100. To date, Spotify streams exceed 216 million and YouTube/VEVO views surpass 64 million-plus.
Tearing through the game with tenacity, 21 Savage carved his own path to the top of 21st century hip-hop last year. Following a series of 2015 fan favorite mixtapes such as The Slaughter Tape and Slaughter King, he sent shockwaves through rap with the Savage Mode collaborative EP alongside super producer Metro Boomin. Not only did the project earn an RIAA gold certification, but it spawned the double-platinum “X” [feat. Future] and platinum “No Heart.” In between supporting Young Thug on tour and selling out his own headliner, 21 uncorked the platinum “Red Opps.” He changed the game with ISSA and Without Warning yet again.
