On this episode of the SAWtopsy Report we cut into the newest movie tie-in song by 21 Savage (although you wouldn't know it even was a movie tie-in based solely on the lyrics).

After teasing its existence a few episodes back, we go all-in on this baffling 2016 New Orleans large-scale musical production of the prolific Easter tradition.
