21 Savage released his debut studio album, Issa Album, on July 7, 2017.[11] It debuted at number two on the Billboard 200 and gave him his first Billboard Hot 100 top 20 song, "Bank Account". His first number one single came at the end of 2017 with his feature on Post Malone's "Rockstar", which was nominated in two categories at the 61st Grammy Awards.[12][13] On October 31, 2017, he released the Offset and Metro Boomin collaboration Without Warning. In December 2018, he released his second album, I Am > I Was, which debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 and stayed at number one for two consecutive weeks.[14]

On February 3, 2019, 21 Savage was arrested by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), officials of which stated that he is a citizen of the United Kingdom who entered the U.S. in July 2005 and then unlawfully overstayed his visa when it expired in July 2006.[15] He was granted bond on February 12 and released the next day, pending the outcome of an expedited deportation hearing.[16] The hearing was initially scheduled for April 9, but was later postponed indefinitely.[17]

Early life

21 Savage was born as Shéyaa Bin Abraham on 22 October 1992, at Newham Hospital in Plaistow, London, England, to British-born parents Heather Carmillia Joseph and Kevin Cornelius Emmons,[1][2] who are of Dominican and Haitian descent.[18][19] His twin sisters, dance choreographers Kyra and Jayda Davis, and father continue to live in London, with Emmons working for Westminster City Council. 21 Savage's grandmother lives in Brixton.[20] 21 Savage's parents separated early in his life, and he moved with his mother to Atlanta, Georgia, at the age of 7.[21][22][23] In June 2005, at the age of 12, he went to the United Kingdom for the funeral of an uncle,[24] stayed for a month and then returned to the United States on 22 July 2005, on an H-4 visa,[25] which allegedly expired a year later (and 21 Savage's attorneys have acknowledged that he and his family overstayed their visas).[15][26][27] 21 Savage's mother then began a relationship with Dr. Amsu Anpu, an endocrinologist and British expatriate, with whom she had more children.[28] He had a brother Quantivayus ("Tay-Man" who died in a shooting after an attempted drug deal.[29]

In the seventh grade, 21 Savage was banned permanently from every school in DeKalb County School District for gun possession.[30] This led him to begin attending schools around the Atlanta metropolitan area before being sent to a youth detention center.[31] 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.[32]

After dropping out, 21 Savage joined a local street gang affiliated with the wider Bloods street gang[10] and became a full-time drug dealer, mainly selling cannabis.[32] 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.[33] In 2011, when 21 Savage was 19, he lost his "right hand" man, Larry, in a shootout.[32] 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.[17][34]


2014–15: Early releases
Following the death of his friend in a shootout on his 21st birthday, 21 Savage began rapping.[33][35] His music career was originally subsidized by his deceased friend's uncle, who gave him money for studio time in 2013.[10] 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.[36] The release made him what Interview Magazine called an "underground hero in Atlanta".[10]

On July 2, 2015, 21 Savage released a collaborative EP, Free Guwop, with Sonny Digital.[37] It is a tribute EP to fellow rapper and influence Gucci Mane. On December 1, 2015, 21 Savage released his second mixtape, Slaughter King.[38
