1. Savage Series
Life Of A Savage 3 is the third installment of the Savage collection by SD. Chicago’s Power 92 Host, Hot Rod sat down with SD months ago to talk about the Life Of A Savage title and where it came from. “It was just – the way we was living. At the time it was rough, it still is rough. At the time though (1st release) it was even rougher. We savages so we was looking at it like – we living the life of a savage though you know?” When asked about the meaning of a savage SD replied, “Savage can be as – you ready to do whatever for whatever ya know? You ready to put your life on the line for anything that you need that you got to get.”

However, that hasn’t stopped the rest of the team from making their presence felt on the music end.
