About Spiral: A criminal mastermind unleashes a twisted form of justice in Spiral, the terrifying new chapter from the book of Saw. Working in the shadow of his father, an esteemed police veteran (Samuel L. Jackson), brash Detective Ezekiel “Zeke” Banks (Chris Rock) and his rookie partner (Max Minghella) take charge of a grisly investigation into murders that are eerily reminiscent of the city’s gruesome past. Unwittingly entrapped in a deepening mystery, Zeke finds himself at the center of the killer’s morbid game. Spiral stars Chris Rock, Max Minghella, Marisol Nichols, and Samuel L. Jackson, and is produced by the original Saw team of Mark Burg and Oren Koules. The film is directed by Darren Lynn Bousman and written by Josh Stolberg & Pete Goldfinger.

About 21 Savage: Cutting deeper than ever before, GRAMMY® Award-winning multi-platinum rapper 21 Savage unleashes “Spiral,” produced by Slaughter Gang’s own Kid Hazel, as the first single off Spiral: From The Book Of SAW Original Soundtrack. Spiral: From the Book of Saw, opened on Friday, May 14, and the Soundtrack—which 21 Savage executive produced—hit the same day. This marks 21 Savage’s first new music since the gold-certified critically exalted #1 opus Savage Mode II with Metro Boomin.
Savage’s music plays its own integral role inSpiral: From the Book of Saw, playing over the end titles. For the track, he utilized elements of the original SAW scores by composer Charlie Clouser [Nine Inch Nails]. He combed an unheard sample library in order to capture the menacing energy of “Spiral.” The production even hinges on the melody of “Hello Zepp” from the first SAW.On the track, 21 Savage rips through a jagged trap beat with incisive bars before the instantly infectious hook bludgeons, “I’m gonna let ‘em spin like a spiral. I don’t got no love for no rival. Put him on the news, he went viral.” Shot in The Official SAW Escape experience in Las Vegas, NV, the accompanying music video intercuts footage from the film alongside shots of the rapper hanging upside down in the iconic bathroom from the original Saw and rapping in front of a giant red spiral.
