After scooping up a second Platinum plaque for his Savage Mode single “No Heart, Savage revealed that he has signed to Epic Records. “I wanna sign to someone who believes in me and understands me,” 21 said while on the Rap Radar podcast.
21 was also motivated to sign to Epic because of the common thread between he and chairman and CEO of Epic Records L.A. Reid: “he’s Black. He’s probably the last Black CEO. Why not? He’ll understand me before anyone else.”
Savage also spoke on his relationship with Drake (“I feel that he’s a genuine person”), an unlikely musical inspiration (“I wanted to be like Juelz Santana“) and more. The interview can be heard here.
