21 Savage has responded to fans’ backlash regarding his recent comments on the relevancy of Nas.
On Monday (November 14), the “Her Loss” rapper found himself in hot water after making controversial comments about Nas and his new album “King’s Disease 3.”
During a heated Clubhouse debate earlier over the weekend, 21 stated, “What y’all saying, relevant though? I don’t feel like he [Nas] is relevant. I just feel like he got fans.” The 30-year old Atlanta rapper added, “He’s not relevant, he just has a loyal ass fan base. He just has a loyal fan base and he still make good-ass music.”
Taking to Twitter to briefly address the situation, 21 shut down the notion of him disrespecting a veteran rapper like Nas and all those who came before him.
“I would never disrespect Nas or any legend who paved the way for me,” he tweeted. “Y’all be tryna take stuff and run with it.”
Both 21 and Nas just released new albums. 21 Savage and Drake‘s “Her Loss” opened at #1 on this week’s Billboard 200, while Nas’ “King’s Disease III” with Hit-Boy was met with critical and fan acclaim.
