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.

If you ain’t a hundred, don’t text my line (Lil’ bitch)
If you know you hatin’, don’t check my Live (Snitch)

[Chorus]
You know I’m Slaughter Gang so the smoke is immortal
Ain’t nothin’ changed, I’ll slaughter your daughter
She said she was a dime, but her friend was a quarter
I had a threesome, then I flushed the rubber down the toilet
She tried to give me head, it was boring
Codeine got a nigga snoring
I wonder if she would’ve slept with the poor me
Savage keep a Draco and it corn beef

And my block good, you’ll never get the best of me (Straight up)

[Chorus]
You know I’m Slaughter Gang so the smoke is immortal
Ain’t nothin’ changed, I’ll slaughter your daughter
She said she was a dime, but her friend was a quarter
I had a threesome, then I flushed the rubber down the toilet
She tried to give me head, it was boring
Codeine got a nigga snoring
I wonder if she would’ve slept with the poor me
Savage keep a Draco and it corn beef
