21 Savage - A cancer to the Black Community

Mar 1 '19 | By Kemet1luv

A burgeoning generation of cancerous rappers are spitting bleak, hedonistic rhymes about prescription pills, loveless sex and premature death, and their presence on the charts swells week after week. In an effort to expose the poisonous nature of these so-called ‘artist’ and their destructive relationship with the black community this article will focus on the inglorious bastard 21 Savage, who’s LP album ‘Issa’ reached No.2 on the charts with toxic tracks that advise “numb the pain with the money”, and “they killed one, we gon' kill five, nigga” opens up questions about the ethics of enjoying music that revels in violence against black people, and spreads like a virus  is what former President Barrack Obama calls, “toxic masculinity.”

Comparing rappers like 21 Savage with other rap chart-toppers such as rapper Kendrick Lamar and Talib Kweli, is reminiscent of the 1990s distinction between the “conscious”, socially aware rap of KRS-One and Public Enemy and its “gangsta” half-brotha, characterized by acts such NWA, with their grim yet vivid narratives of gunplay and crime, has fallen into a dangerous grey area of entertainment versus blatant disrespect for black life, and the obsession with crime as a way out the hood.

So why are wack MC’s such as 21 Savage diving into hopeless, degenerate rhymes? Nihilism suggests that 21 Savage finds pleasure, in meaningless violence, murder, and drug dealing as an illusory world of self-destruction. Any person that subjectively analysis 21 Savage’s music can see that he is a proponent, and avid promoter of anti-black ether, that exacerbates the western world’s obsession with black criminality. Nihilism and negativity is front and center in 21 Savage’s celebratory murderous lyrics.

Even before his Super Bowl weekend arrest in Atlanta, were Atlanta police say the rapper, whose real name is Shéyaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, was recklessly driving a car with a loaded gun in the glove compartment,  21 Savage had profited greatly from his image of stereotypically black criminality, rambunctiousness and rebelliousness. His music which has excited his sold out concerts with a majority white audience cheering him on, is laced with perverse lyrics of infidelity, and killing of "niggas", is the main event. His loyal fan base, a mixture of mostly teenagers, suburban white kids, and college students, are entertained and motivated by his rags to riches stories, and hood proverbs about selling drugs, stealing, and killing his way to the top,  but never to the point of them wanting to solve the issues plaguing the black community. 

After closely going through 21 Savages entire discography of destructive and poisonous records, he calls “art”, here is a brief breakdown of lyrics from his various projects from 2015 to present:
