Los Angeles, CA) Cutting deeper than ever before, GRAMMY® Award-winning multi-platinum rapper 21 Savage unleashes “Spiral,” produced by Slaughter Gang’s own Kid Hazel, as the first single off Spiral: From The Book Of SAW Original Soundtrack. Get it HERE via Slaughter Gang/Epic Records. The highly anticipated suspense-thriller from the Saw universe and the first blockbuster release of the season, Spiral: From the Book of Saw, opens on Friday, May 14, and the Soundtrack—which 21 Savage executive produced—hits the same day. This marks 21 Savage’s first new music since the gold-certified critically exalted #1 opus Savage Mode II with Metro Boomin.

Spiral: From the Book of Saw stars Chris Rock, Max Minghella, Marisol Nichols, and Samuel L. Jackson. Chris Rock executive produced the film alongside producers Oren Koules and Mark Burg. The film was directed by Darren Lynn Bousman.

After the trailer and TV campaign teased its arrival, the film’s star and legendary comedian and actor Chris Rock personally broke the news of the single on Instagram. Savage’s music plays its own integral role inSpiral: From the Book of Saw, playing over the end titles. For the track, he utilized elements of the original SAW scores by composer Charlie Clouser [Nine Inch Nails]. He combed an unheard sample library in order to capture the menacing energy of “Spiral.” The production even hinges on the melody of “Hello Zepp” from the first SAW.

On the track, 21 Savage rips through a jagged trap beat with incisive bars before the instantly infectious hook bludgeons, “I’m gonna let ‘em spin like a spiral. I don’t got no love for no rival. Put him on the news, he went viral.” Shot in The Official SAW Escape experience in Las Vegas, NV, the accompanying music video intercuts footage from the film alongside shots of the rapper hanging upside down in the iconic bathroom from the original Saw and rapping in front of a giant red spiral.

Stay tuned for more from 21 Savage soon.
