21 Savage is currently one of the most established rappers in the Hip-Hop world and is also well aware of what it is like to be living on the streets. He is also not without his fair share of controversies.
While speaking during DJ Akademiks’ Off The Record podcast, 21 Savage stated that despite Drake being one of the biggest names in the Hip Hop world, cannot beat Future when it comes to being the biggest rapper in Atlanta.
“N-ggas don’t be listening to Drake like that where [I’m from]. When you ain’t no rapper, all them statistics don’t mean shit. A regular street n-gga don’t give a fuck about how many times you went Number 1 [or] how many white people listen to your shit, ’cause they don’t even think that far.
“The farthest they think is the club: who’s selling this club out? That’s who they think is the biggest n-ggas. In Atlanta, it’s a lot of n-ggas who you really can’t tell them Future ain’t bigger than Drake.
Drake ain’t really no big mixtape artist like that,” he argued. “How you got all your Drake albums, you probably went in the store and bought them muthafuckas. Every Future album I ever heard was a bootleg. N-ggas was bootlegging it or going to LiveMixtapes, so when Nothing Was the Same or all that type of shit came out, n-gga I ain’t know how to get to that shit.”
Future certainly has a lot of fans behind him as well, so there is some weight to what 21 Savage said. Regardless, people are entitled to their own opinions and that is what matters in the end.
