21 Savage, Metro Boomin drop visuals for ‘Brand New Draco’

Savage Mode II was not only a victory lap for trap duo 21 Savage and Metro Boomin, but it also allowed the pair to elevate to a whole new level.

SM2’s release was surrounded with an insane amount of hype — and with lots to live up to. Off the popularity of the fan-favorite 2016 mixtape Savage Mode, 21 and Metro redefined the modern landscape of hip-hop in the process, ushering in a fresh sound for the greater good of the genre.

In October, the Atlanta-St. Louis tandem reunited for the follow-up to their wildly popular Savage Mode, which saw features from Drake, Young Thug, Young Nudy, and legendary actor Morgan Freeman — who handled narration duties throughout the album.

Now, five years removed from reaching mainstream acclaim, 21 and Metro are bonafide superstars and curators within hip-hop’s signature trap wave. Their influence in the game has been inherently widespread over the course of their careers, as their dark, omnious melodic sound is ultimately what gave “murder music” a chance to flourish.

Releasing the music video to their latest single “Brand New Draco” Wednesday, 21 and Metro are back in their bag — playing the lifestyle of money-hungry stock brokers. The “Wolf of Wall Street” type visual depicts Metro and 21 bossing up for their soaring stock “$DRCO,” complete with menacing cinematography, commercial breaks and a fun storyline listeners can latch on to.

Savage has been known to create visuals with substance over the course of his career — and on the five-year anniversary of Savage Mode Thursday — it only makes sense for 21 and Metro to cash in on their success once more.
