Watch 21 Savage’s XXL Freshman Freestyle

21 Savage is the latest XXL Freshman to deliver his customary freestyle.

Following Lil Uzi Vert, Desiigner, and Anderson .Paak, among others, Savage offers up his a cappella verse in a black-and-white video.

“Life ain’t been no walk through the park,” he raps in the clip. “Where do I start? Young ni**a selling rock and robbing just not to starve.”

21’s success comes only after a short period of time, according to the Decatur, Ga. spitter. He opened up about his rapid rise during a video profile for XXL.

“I’ve been rapping seriously for a year-and-a-half,” he said. “In 2015, I bought a Mac computer and a mic and all that stuff. Then, my little brothers had broke in somebody’s house and they had ended up finding a better mic and a better computer. So, I started recording music and that ended up being The Slaughter Tape.”
