Atlanta rapper 21 Savage is low-key bossing up. The hip-hop star hit up social media this week to let fans and fellow rap peers know he’s in complete control of his masters.
Sav hit up Twitter last night (January 4) to tell his followers he’s out here leveling up on the music industry’s business side.
The announcement came shortly after R&B singer Chris Brown announced he secured a deal with RCA Records to own his masters.
After its first seven days of availability, Sav’s new I Am > I Was album toppled its competition on the sales chart.
21 Savage scores his first No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart with the chart-topping bow of I Am > I Was. The set was released on Dec. 21 via Slaughter Gang/Epic Records and launches with 131,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending Dec. 27, according to Nielsen Music. Of that sum, 18,000 were in traditional album sales, as the bulk of the album was driven by streaming activity. (Billboard)
A few days ago, Savage gave himself a “Greatest Of All Time” goat emoji.
