21 Savage is an American rapper and songwriter. A popular teen icon today, he is admired not just for his musical skills, but also for his incredible rise to name and fame from being a petty criminal on the streets. Having grown up in Decatur, the mean part of East Atlanta, Georgia, he started dealing in drugs when he was 14 years old. He arrived at the music industry quite late, in 2013 at 21 years of age. Investing the money he had earned in the years spent on the streets, he began recording at the renowned Patchwerk Studios. Soon he caught the attention of Key!, the mainstay rapper who has played an essential role in the ground-level movement of Atlanta’s hip-hop scene.
