21 Savage made news on Elliott Wilson and Brian "B.Dot" Miller's Rap Radar podcast today, announcing that he had signed to Epic Records.
The move to Epic wasn't a big surprise, as Savage had been linked to the label for a while.
Although after Drake bought him a frickin' Ferrari a couple months back there had also been speculation 21 may be headed to OVO.
Savage explained his tight, gift-filled relationship with Drake on the podcast.
"Because of his level of success, he ain't gotta do no song with me," he said of Drake. "He ain't gotta do nothing that he did. That's deeper than rap." "I've been talking to Drake before 'Savage Mode', so it ain't like he just jumped on when I was hot," said 21. "We been fuckin' with each other before 'Slaughter King' even came out."While Savage values his friendship with Drizzy, he doesn't have or want similar relationships with the other cats in the game.
"I fuck with a lot of rappers, I just don't look for friendships with a lot of rappers," he said. "A lot of niggas take it too far, like, this is just business. We can come together, do a song—that don't mean I have to look at you like my friend. Cause I know niggas is fake. A lot of these niggas ain't real so I don't expect that from them. You hot, I'm hot, let's do a song and make this motherfuckin' [money], know what I'm saying?"
