Who wanna see 21 get knocked out by BIG 22. If he win I’ll change my name.”

I just felt like jacking him. I’m really a savage out here. I’m really in the slums. What people don’t understand is that underneath this funny, it’s really real. We’re in the streets. I’m a street n*gga trying to make it out anyway I can.

god I ask you to keep me focus and keep me headed in the right direction & keep negative energy from around me

none of my exs have found better than me. I take pride in that.

22 Savage (born MacArthur Johnson on October 8, 1996 in Baton Rogue, Louisiana) is an American rapper, comedian and social media star. 22 Savage first gained fame on the Vine video social media network. Prior to his hip hop semi-stardom, MacArthur released comedic videos online under the name Mighty Mike, Funny Ass Mike and girlhefunny. He took on the 22 Savage moniker after he realized he sounded and looked like the Atlanta, Georgia rapper 21 Savage. The original didn’t appreciate the imitation and the two began to feud. Ultimately, 22 Savage rebranded himself as Young 22 in Feb. 2017. In April 2017, he gained some notoriety while appearing on the track “Kylie’s Daddy,” professing his lust towards Kylie Jenner.
