Overall Meaning

The lyrics to 21 Savage's song "Redrum" convey a strong sense of power, dominance, and defiance. The repetition of "redrum" throughout the song signifies a connection to violence and murder. The use of this word as a chant reinforces the idea that the artist's crew, known as G Block, is associated with a dangerous and deadly lifestyle.


The opening lines express the artist's desire to attain wealth and success without leaving any evidence or breadcrumbs behind. This could signify a tendency to hide his criminal activities and avoid leaving any trails for law enforcement. The following line, "Bitch, what? I thought a nigga said sum'," portrays a confrontational attitude towards anyone who underestimates or disrespects the artist. This shows a willingness to assert dominance and defend his reputation.


The second verse highlights the artist's involvement in criminal activities while boasting about his role as a leader and influential figure. He claims to control the area he resides in, referred to as G Block, with "redrum" being its defining characteristic. The lyrics also mention having a gun with thirty-two shots, demonstrating a readiness for violence if necessary. The artist asserts his authority by mentioning his influence over others and the fear they have of him.


The final verse touches upon several themes, including the artist's street credibility and his refusal to associate with informants or "rats." He emphasizes the importance of loyalty and integrity within his circle. The lyrics suggest the use of violence as a means of retaliation or self-defense, as well as a method of establishing dominance and respect. The line "Smokin' on my brothers, got his ass left slain" implies a willingness to seek revenge on those who betray him or his crew.


The reference to the famous quote from The Shining, "Here's Johnny," adds a chilling aspect to the lyrics. It suggests a potential connection to horror and violence, reinforcing the overall theme of intimidation and danger. The repeated chanting of "redrum" further emphasizes this dark and menacing tone throughout the song.

I love how this song is basically 21 Savage speaking confidence into itself . 21 Savage and 💖a u t h e n t i c v i e w s 💖 are a great duo for virality

@darwinbodero7872

I love to see 21 embracing his British heritage and the disabled. Very inclusive of him

@supercrud2012

Oh, that particular disabled brudda. Unfortunately for you, he has a lot of rep on the roads from bloodset days in the 2000s.

He was known as wheelz. No lie. He's a civilian now and a grown man

@darwinbodero7872

@@supercrud2012 if he’s on 21’s video I can only assume he’s trying to move away from his past
