About 21 Savage

Multiplatinum-certified rapper, artist, and visionary 21 Savage remains
downright unstoppable. Recently, he teamed up with Post Malone for the
platinum-certified megasmash “rockstar,” achieving his first Billboard
Hot 100 #1 in the process. Meanwhile, his full-length debut Issa Album,
stands out as one of the year’s biggest success stories. It clinched #2
on the Billboard Top 200 upon arrival, moving over 77,000 copies
first-week. It also went #1 on the Apple Music Hip-Hop/Rap Chart. The
lead single “Bank Account” earned an RIAA platinum certification and
peaked at #12 on the Billboard Hot 100. To date, Spotify streams exceed
216 million and YouTube/VEVO views surpass 64 million-plus. Tearing
through the game with tenacity, 21 Savage carved his own path to the top
of 21st century hip-hop last year.

Following a series of 2015 fan favorite mixtapes such as The
Slaughter Tape
and Slaughter King, he sent shockwaves
through rap with the Savage Mode collaborative EP alongside super
producer Metro Boomin. Not only did the project earn an RIAA gold
certification, but it spawned the double-platinum “X” [feat. Future] and
platinum “No Heart.” In between supporting Young Thug on tour and
selling out his own headliner, 21 uncorked the platinum “Red Opps.” He
changed the game with ISSA and Without Warning yet again.
