Still not into the holiday spirit? Here’s a new 21 Savage song.

The 24-year-old Atlanta rapper’s new song sidesteps the nihilistic psychedelia of Savage Mode—his excellent collaboration with Metro Boomin—for straightforward trap. 21 Savage still remains a entrancing, darkly melodic performer here: “Choppa on me hold 100/Pull up on ya nigga gunnin’/Pull up on ya niggas runnin’/Pull up on ya get to clappin’”

This is the season for Mariah Carey and George Michael, but how do we appreciate the true light of holiday joy if it’s not juxtaposed with darkness? Listen to “100” below.
