Last December, the trailer for Mortal Kombat 11 dropped featuring a clip of a new song by 21 Savage called "Immortal." Today, the full song has arrived, and all the references to the violent fighting game's characters have remained intact ("Draco get to kickin' like Liu Kang," "Dread-headed killer like Cyrax," etc). It's the second-best reimagining of the Kombat universe I've heard in the past month, after Shadowax's "Nikolai Reptile." Listen to "Immortal" above via Pitchfork.

Over the past year, 21 Savage has weathered an ICE detention (and revelations that he was born in United Kingdom before emigrating to the United States as a child) and kept releasing new music. Most recently he's appeared on remixes of Normani's "Motivation" and Jhene Aiko's "Triggered" with Summer Walker.
