21 hit up social media with a snippet of the song back in October 2015, and it was supposed to appear on his and Boomin’s 2016 collaborative project Savage Mode. As we all know now, “Pause” didn’t make the final cut; however, 21 continued to tease the record on social media, suggesting it would one day be pulled from the vault. Well, Friday was the day.
“Yeah I’m real right, I took an oath not to tell / If you try the gang, we gon’ shoot you like Adele (pop-pop-pop),” 21 raps in the first verse. “I was runnin’ up with fifties, man, one-five for a fifty, man / I got a four hunnid, man, AK hold a hunnid, man.”
