21 Savage linked up with J. Cole in late 2018 for “a lot,” the lead single from ‘I Am Greater Than I Was.’ Tied with “Bank Account” as 21’s highest-charting solo song on the Billboard Hot 100, the track is produced by DJ Dahi.

The Aisultan Seitov-directed music video for “a lot” features an additional verse criticizing US immigration policy, which 21’s lawyers speculate could have led to him being targeted by ICE and subsequently arrested.
