21 Savage is keeping fans in the loop regarding his process with Savage Mode 2.

Recently, 21 hopped on Instagram Live and explained the delay behind his Metro Boomin-assisted project. “Savage Mode 2 on the way,” he announced. “You know, I gotta perfect my s—t. This s—t take time. I be putting a lot of hard work into my s—t. I aint finna drop anything. My s—t gotta be hard. So, it’s gonna take me a little bit longer. We working. I got a lot of other s—t going on in my life too, that I gotta balance, make all this s—t work. But I promise you I’m working. It’s finna drop. I promise, it’s on the way.”

Earlier this year, 21 hinted that the mixtape would drop in March. Since then, however, fans have been been waiting patiently to see when the project will makes its debut on streaming platforms.

Since the lockdown brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, 21 has been doing his best to stay busy. Back in April, the 27-year-old hosted a hilarious karaoke session on Instagram Live. During his live-streamed event, 21 crooned along to Aaliyah’s “Come Over,” Beyoncé’s “Me, Myself & I,” Brandy’s “I Wanna Be Down” and more.

The hilarious session came after 21 revealed that he was feeling under the weather. At the time, the “X” rhymer believed that he might’ve contracted Coronavirus. “I been breaking down my symptoms I been feeling and s—t. Everybody keep talking ‘bout it sound like Coronavirus,” he said. “So I say, ‘OK, say less.’ Where could I have received this Coronavirus from? So I go to thinking about my schedule. ‘OK, where I went? OK, we went to the club the other night.’”
