21 Savage is steering clear of rap beefs and here is why.
Over the past week, we’ve seen rappers like Drake, Pusha T, Lil Uzi Vert, Rich The Kid, Tekashi 6ix9ine, and Chief Keef, all engaged in rap beefs. In two of the incidents last weekend, things could’ve ended badly when Keef was shot at in New York City and Lil Uzi and his crew pulled up on Rich The Kid in Philly before chasing him in the streets and cornering him inside a Starbucks.
Seems 21 Savage has had enough of the beefs and has given his two cents about it on Twitter. “I wish everybody come together and kill all this beef They want us to kill each other especially now since we young and rich,” he tweeted. In another tweet, he told his fans he wanted to do a song with Amy Winehouse.
21 Savage isn’t the first rapper to echo the same sentiments about rap beefs. In the past, OG artists have told younger acts to bury their beef and focus on making money. Still, these days upcoming rappers are using beefs as shock-value to draw attention to their careers.
Take for instance, Lil Pump who dissed J. Cole last year just so he could grab headlines on hip hop blogs. Get this, Cole is a much more formidable rapper than he is and could’ve ended his career if he chooses, but he was restraint, at least until his new album which was recently released.
21 Savage isn’t just staying away from rap beefs, he also recently announced that he will stop wearing expensive jewelry and invest his money in startups.
