Now he is a celebrity and owner of multi-million net worth, who dreams to buy a private jet. It’s hard to believe that less than 5 years ago he was just a criminal, who was shot from a gun on his 21st birthday. The hip-hop artist 21 Savage tells, that the shooting accident, during which his close friend was killed, played the key role in his fate. After that, he focused his attention on music, and that led him to success.

Born in a poor family in Dominica, he grew up in Atlanta, GA. The boy spent his early years in a bad neighborhood. He took the gun in his hands for the first time at the age of 8. Since that moment he had developed a strong passion for weapons. In his teens, Shayaa owned several pistols, and one of them even brought to school. He was dismissed after that, and his mother had to move their family to Gwinnett County to get her son enrolled to school there. But Shayaa was banned again. He started to smoke weed and sell drugs, like most of the people in his immediate circle.

He could easily become a criminal and appear in jail. Otherwise, he could be murdered, like his older brother and many of his friends. But music saved him. As for now, the rapper boasts with a number of hit singles and extended plays. His debut set of songs “Issa Album” was certified as gold in the USA.
