When 21 Savage took the Rolling Loud stage on Sunday, he probably didn’t expect curtains of rain to greet him. But a few minutes into the set and it became clear he was the eye of the storm itself. The Slaughter Gang rapper didn’t just rally the poncho-clad crowd—he commanded it.
“Savage Mode,” “No Heart” and “X” were just three of the hits he performed. No special guests, no fancy stage pyrotechnics. There was just 21, his boundless energy and his furious appeals for drenched audience members to “f*ck the rain.” As he ripped into “Bank Account” to close the set, no one could even tell it was pouring.
