The ‘Bank Account’ rapper also notes that the Canadian rapper was the only who got him a birthday present in 2016.
21 Savage has urged the hip-hop community to give Drake more credit for supporting young rappers.
The No Heart hitmaker is making waves after teaming up with Post Malone for 2017 hit Rock Star, and in a new GQ expose he’s heaping praise on the Canadian for giving new artists big breaks.
