The year of the savage continues. Months after the Hot Girl Megan Thee Stallion topped the charts with her anthem “Savage,” Savage Mode II, the collaborative mixtape from 21 Savage and super producer Metro Boomin, debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s album chart. Savage Mode II is the sequel to the cult classic Savage Mode. Executive produced by Young Metro, the 2016 release featured the Future-assisted banger “X” and helped take 21’s career to new levels. Although it’s been four years since the premiere of the first Savage Mode, the sequel, featuring hard-hitting bangers like “Runnin” and guest appearances from Drake, Young Thug and Morgan Freeman – who narrates the project – is worth the wait, according to critics. Here are four dynamic duos that we hope join forces again soon.  


Future and Young Thug

Although SUPER SLIMEY debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200, the joint mixtape from Future and Young Thug wasn’t the trap classic fans were promised. However, Hendrix and Thugga are expected to turn things up with a sequel. The project is expected to heavily feature Gunna and Lil Baby. 



Lil Baby and Gunna

Partners in rhyme Lil Baby and Gunna displayed their undeniable chemistry all throughout their Drip Harder project. They also flexed their hit-making potential. Their first joint effort featured the platinum singles “Never Recover” and “Drip Too Hard,” which peaked at No. 4 on the Hot 100. 



Jay-Z and Kanye West

It’s difficult to imagine that Jay-Z and Kanye West will ever reunite for the sequel to their critically acclaimed Watch The Throne, but it doesn’t hurt to dream. Hearing these two billionaire superstars trade bars on everything from politics to the state of Black America would be interesting to say the least.  



Drake and Future

Drake and Future proved that they still had the Midas touch in 2020. The hit-making tandem started off the year with the release of “Life Is Good,” which not only satisfied fans’ thirst for new music from the two, but also dominated the charts. They also reunited on “Desires” and “D4L” from Drizzy’s Dark Lane Demo Tapes, showing that the magic that helped curate their joint mixtape, What A Time To Be Alive is still alive and well.
