“Knife in my face, 30 on my waist/ Real street nigga, and I keep a Dirty K/ Hit my first lick, and I found 30k/ But I blew the shit, bitch I do this shit/ You can go and ask the streets, ‘cause they know this shit/ I got ya bitch blowin dick, like a hookah stick/ And I’m still trapping, and I’m still rapping/ I’m 21 Savage, you pussy niggas average”. Well, goddamn 21 Savage, we believe you, shit. Hailing from the streets of Atlanta, Georgia, 21 Savage, born Shayaa Bin Abraham-Joseph is the perfect illustration an artist processing his life experiences with beats and rap verses in the phenomenon known as hip hop. In an interview with Hip Hops Revival, Abraham-Joseph revealed he was expelled from middle school after the young rapper brought a 55 caliber handgun to class (lol, what?). Spitting lyrically violent verses with the calmness of ordering a cheeseburger at a drive-through, 21 Savage plays an important role in music as his autobiographical lyrics document the gritty underside and challenges of growing up an underprivileged American youth.
