As social media continues to debate the top 50 greatest rappers, 21 Savage is sharing his top 5.
During an interview with Complex, the Atlanta-based rapper revealed who made his coveted list, starting with himself. “Number one would have to be 21 Savage,” he said before listing off JAY-Z at No. 2 and The Notorious B.I.G. third. Fourth place he gave to his cousin Young Nudy. And the fifth spot went to Nipsey Hussle.
Savage has shared his support for the late rapper in the past. Following the release of Nipsey’s Victory Lap album last year, Savage posted a clip of his track “Blue Laces 2.” “Only real ni**as appreciate this type of music,” he wrote on Instagram Stories.
The Saint Laurent Don recently announced that he is working on new music including Savage Mode 2, a sequel to his 2016 collaborative mixtape with Metro Boomin.
