The 21 Savage family relocated to Atlanta, Georgia when he was seven years old, unlike his twin sisters, father, and grandmother, who remained in London once Heather and Kevin’s marriage disintegrated. Savage’s mother remarried and had more children after the death of Savage. Quantivayus, his half-brother, was killed in a shooting that occurred after a botched drug deal.

21 Savage was expelled from every public school in the Atlanta area when he was in junior high school for owning a gun. Although he completed eighth grade through an alternative school programme, he dropped out completely during his first year. After dropping out, he joined a street gang and went into business for himself as a full-time cannabis dealer. On his 21st birthday, 21 Savage was shot six times by rival gang members during an attempted heist, and two of his closest pals were killed as a result of the shooting.

Not until after the horrible tragedy did 21 Savage start rapping in public. In 2013, the uncle of his departed closest friend gave him a gift of money to use for studio time. On November 12, 2014, he released his first single, “Picky,” which was a hit for him. In 2015, he released the mixtapes The Slaughter Tape and Slaughter King, which were both critically acclaimed. In 2015, 21 Savage released his first EP, Free Guwop, which was a major success.

His second EP Savage Mode (with Metro Boomin) was released in 2016 and reached #7 on the US Rap chart as well as #9 on the US R&B/Hip-Hop chart and #30 on the Billboard 200 chart. 21 Savage’s single “X” (with Metro Boomin featuring Future) reached #13 on the US Rap chart and #17 on the US R&B/Hip-Hop chart as well as #47 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

He also enjoyed success with the single “No Heart,” which was released after the album (with Metro Boomin). In July 2017, he released his debut studio album, “Issa Album,” which was his first studio album. In October 2017, he released his second studio album, which was titled “Second Chance.” 21 Savage was featured on Drake’s single “Sneakin’,” which peaked at #8 on the US R&B and #10 on the US Rap charts after being released in August.

On December 21, 2018, 21 Savage released his third studio album, I Am > I Was, which was his first since 2015. It debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard list, becoming his first No. 1 album in the United States. In January 2020, 21 Savage and J.

21 Savage Legal Issues

On February 3, 2019, 21 Savage was stopped and brought into custody by agents from the United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). They had been targeted in a sting operation known as the Georgia Gang Act that resulted in accusations of aggravated assault against him and the other four passengers, who included his cousin, rapper Young Nudy, and two other guys.

When 21 Savage was apprehended, Immigration and Customs Enforcement discovered that he had been in the United States unlawfully since July 2006, when his non-immigrant visa expired. His attorneys said that while 21 Savage acknowledged that he had overstayed his visa, he had been attempting to have it renewed since at least 2017. He has been released from detention, but his case is still pending as of March 2020, according to court records. At the moment, he is not permitted to depart the nation.

Later in February 2019, 21 Savage surrendered and was placed into a south Georgia jail in answer to an arrest warrant for felony theft by fraud. He was released after serving his sentence. During a music engagement, 21 Savage was paid $17,000 to appear, but he did not show up and refused to return the money. This led to a legal issue. He was discharged, and a court date has been set for February 2020, according to the court records.
