21 Savage’s mother then began a relationship with Dr. Amsu Anpu, an endocrinologist, and British expatriate, with whom she had more children. He had a brother Quantivayus (“Tay-Man”) who died in a shooting after an attempted drug deal

In the seventh grade, 21 Savage was banned permanently from every school in DeKalb County School District for gun possession.

This led him to begin attending schools around the Atlanta metropolitan area before being sent to a youth detention center.

 After being released from the youth detention center, he completed eighth grade through an alternative program before finishing a semester of high school; he dropped out in his freshman year following multiple exclusions that he said “exhausted” him

After dropping out, 21 Savage joined a local street gang affiliated with the wider Bloods street gang and became a full-time drug dealer, mainly selling cannabis.  

He also regularly took part in other criminal activities including robbery and car theft, although he was only arrested once after contraband was found in a car he was driving.

In 2013, during an attempted robbery on his 21st birthday, 21 Savage was shot six times by rival gang members and his best friend Johnny was killed.

21 Savage Career

Following the death of his friend in a shootout on his 21st birthday, 21 Savage began rapping.  

His music career was originally subsidized by his deceased friend’s uncle, who gave him money for studio time in 2013.

On November 12, 2014, 21 Savage’s debut single, “Picky”, produced by DJ Plugg, was released.

It was later included on his debut mixtape, The Slaughter Tape, which was released on May 25, 2015.

The release made him what Interview Magazine called an “underground hero in Atlanta.”
