21 Savage was born Shayaa Bin Abraham-Joseph in Georgia on October 22, 1992. He rose to fame thanks to his mix tapes such as “Slaughter King” and “Slaughter Tape”. This rising star currently has an estimated net worth of a whopping $4 million.
Unfortunately 21 Savage was exposed to violence and drugs at an early age. At 14, he witnessed his dad dealing drugs (cocaine), and, he got in the business as well. Education was a struggle and he eventually got kicked out because he brought firearms to school. He then joined the Bloods associated gang “21.” His 21st birthday was the worst experience of his life because his best friend was killed and Savage himself was shot multiple times. The shooting incident sparked a great change in 21 Savage and he dedicated himself to stabilizing his rapping career.
Amazingly, it only took a little over a year for him to land on the XXL Magazine’s Freshman List. In just the two years that followed he has earned millions from performances, brand endorsements, and other business deals. He signed with Epic Records and his songs entitled “Jumpin’” and “Ain’t No 21” gained more than 2 million views on YouTube.
21 Savage is known to be in collaboration with other superstar rappers like Future, Drake, and Meek Mill. He may not have an award yet, but with his unique sound, he has earned the respect of many well-known rappers and hip-hoppers.
21 Savage is still young, full of enthusiasm and one of the most promising artists of today.
