After making comments questioning a fellow rapper’s relevance, 21 Savage might have dropped the Big Joker with help from the Queensbridge legend in question.
Earlier this month 21 sparked outrage from the elders in Hip-Hop over comments he made on Clubhouse. A chat room on the social audible app emerged called “Is Nas the Greatest Rapper or What?” and 21 joined the room and asked multiple questions.
“What y’all saying, relevant though?” said Savage. “I don’t feel like he’s [Nas] relevant. He just has a loyal ass fan base. He just has a loyal fan base and he still make good-ass music.”
In record time, fans claimed 21 Savage was feeling himself because he dropped a collab album with Drake. Savage seemingly was trying to speak on Nas’ legacy, and he took to Twitter to defend his comments.
I would never disrespect nas or any legend who paved the way for me y’all be tryna take stuff and run with it 🤦🏾♂️
