21 Savage has a loyal underground following since hitting the scene a few years ago. With his single “No Heart” making a mainstream buzz, it was only a matter of time before he signed a deal.
Savage sat down with Rap Radar’s Elliott Wilson and “B. Dot” to discuss his new deal with Epic Records. Savage says L.A. Reid was a true fan and saw the potential and that drove him to sign to the label.
“I ain’t wanna just sign on some straight business shit,” Savage said.” “I wanna sign to someone who believes in me and understands me.”
“No Heart” is officially platinum along with “X” featuring Future. The Metro Boomin and Savage joint mixtape made a huge splash last year, so the union with Reid who has build up tons of young emerging artists over the last 30 years. Watch Savage talk about the signing above.
