On Monday (Oct. 19), 21 and Metro Boomin unleashed a chopped and screwed version of Savage Mode 2 to start the week off right. In the "ChopNotSlop" rendition of the 15-track album, the LP, including the album's intro, are flipped to fit a new style.
Three 6 Mafia's, DJ Paul, went on social media to announce the LP was dropping at Midnight on Sunday (Oct. 19). The 43-year-old rapper posted to Instagram, writing, "Oooohhh Shit‼️‼️ My Nephys Don Brought Back Chopped n Screwed To The Masses‼️Sh!t So GatDam HARD‼️💪🏽💪🏽💪🏽 Droppin At Midnight ‼️ In the same video attached to the album's announcement, Paul shouted out the genre's originator DJ Screw.
"Man, I'm so glad you brought this shit back, man. Screw shit is the best. RIP DJ Screw," he says while listening to the remixed tracks in his Range Rover.
Savage Mode 2 tribute to DJ Screw and the 1990s is not the only nostalgic thing about the two men's joint effort. The album's cover is also a throwback to the past, the design is a work of art by Pen & Pixel Graphics, a former Houston-based company. The same company has created the cover art for Snoop Dogg, Juvenile, Master P and more.
