Since his release from Immigrations and Customs Enforcement, 21 Savage sat to do his first interview.
The rapper, legally known as She’yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, was detained by ICE for a total of nine days. During that time, social media ignited in a flame of memes, after it was revealed that 21 was actually born in the United Kingdom. Many people joined in on the laughter– even some people, who 21 shares space with, in the entertainment industry. Among those entertainers were Chris Brown and Demi Lovato.
However, while reflecting, 21 savage says that memes aren’t bothering him. In fact, in the interview, he says it was being locked up that hurt the most.
“It ain’t about the meme, it’s about the bigger picture,”
HNHH reports that he then goes on to add:
I been shot — what is a meme? A meme is nothing. That’s something on the internet that I can do like this [turns over phone] and never see again. I look at bullet scars every day, so it’s like, a meme, bro?”
