Shayaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, famous as 21 Savage and the Slaughter King, is a rapper and songwriter of British origin. A popular teen icon today, he is admired not just for his musical skills, but also for his incredible rise to name and fame from being a petty criminal on the streets. He started dealing in drugs when he was 14 years old. He arrived at the music industry quite late, in 2013 at 21 years of age. Investing the money he had earned in the years spent on the streets, he began recording at the renowned Patchwerk Studios. Soon he caught the attention of Key!, the mainstay rapper who has played an essential role in the ground-level movement of Atlanta’s hip-hop scene. Key! gave Shayaa some career advice and introduced him to music producers who were interested in investing in a fresh yet powerful voice. Thus petty criminal Shayaa became rapper “21 Savage” and went on to release tracks like ‘Drip’, ‘X ft Future’, ‘No Heart’, ‘Red Opps’, ‘Woah’, ‘Red Rag Blue Rag’, ‘Skrrt Skrrt’, and ‘Supply’ which became massive hits, accumulating millions in revenue. He has also collaborated with the likes of Gucci Mane, Young Thug, T.I, Playboy Carti, Metro Boomin, Future, Drake, and Meek Mill, just to name a few. At present, 21 Savage is affiliated with Epic Records, a label owned by Sony Music Entertainment. The website, ‘djbooth’, has termed him “Hip-hop’s realest rapper”.
