Guest blogger and Atlanta native Elyse Nichelle remembers a story one of her student told her when 21 was still On the rise.
“Growing up in Atlanta myself, I’ve had friends who knew 21 before he was mainstream. At the time of his early rise, I was working with youth and asked one of my students about their favorite rappers. His response, “21 Savage, he’s a good dude, he bails my brother out of jail every time something happens no matter what.”
Elyse says, “That alone is a testament to the rapper’s true character.”
