From my own listening perspective over the years, I’ve noticed that gangsta rap has seemingly been supplanted or subsumed by horrorcore and trap in recent years. This idea is borne out by the work of 21 Savage—a rapper formerly known as Shayaa Bin Abraham-Joseph—who deftly twists the two sub-genres into an enticing and frightening amalgam of big, brittle beats and devastatingly dark narratives floated out on a river made from the mud of life. He’ll make an appearance on Tuesday, Dec. 19 at the Historic El Rey Theater (622 Central Ave. SW). The former gang member and now active practitioner of traditional African religious beliefs got noticed with nasty but knowing mixtapes like Slaughter King, but has recently moved on to the more polished, profane and brutal minimalism heard on his debut Issa Album. Some critics complained it was just more music about getting high and getting laid, but isn’t that why the devil made music to begin with? $35 to $132 • 8pm • All-ages (13+)
