21 Savage is all about fiscal responsibility and he makes it clear from the way he moves and in his songs. Earlier in the year, the rapper said that he stopped wearing and purchasing jewelry as a way to inspire the youth to focus on business investments. The rapper made his debut television debut on Ellen where he performed “Bank Account” and announced his “21 Savage Bank Account Campaign” in partnership with Get Schooled. The root of everything is his fear of being broke which he spoke on more candidly during the first ever AT&T Audience Network Interview.
21 Savage is set to appear on AT&T’s Audience Network concert and interview which will air tomorrow (July 20). They recently shared a clip of Savage performing Bank Account as well as a brief snippet of the interview portion. In the clip, the rapper explained his fear of going broke.
“I used to rob a lot,” he said. “Like a lot of my friends went to jail but it was fun, too ’cause it molded me. I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t go through those things.”
After being asked about the inspiration behind his hit song “Bank Account,” he explained that it simply comes from wanting money in his bank account.
“I’ve always been a hustler. When I got something, I wanted to keep it. I didn’t wanna go back to having nothing.” He said.
21 Savage’s AT&T Audience Network concert is set to air tomorrow night at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
