21 Savage recently stopped by The Ellen Show not only to perform his single “Bank Account” but to bring a good cause along with him, too.
21 took to Ellen’s stage, changing up much of the song’s lyrics for the daytime show’s much more mainstream crowd. Bounding around with only a DJ behind him, the audience seemed into Savage more than you might expect. In addition to performing, he spoke to host the host about his new nonprofit initiative to help boost financial literacy.
“I started the 21 Savage Bank Account Campaign and it’s to help kids learn how to save money and make money, and open bank accounts for kids,” he said.
To get the campaign started, 21 threw in a $21,000 check. “@21Savage is doing something absolutely amazing,” Ellen said in an Instagram post of the moment. “I can’t wait for you to see it.”
In typical daytime TV fashion, 21 made sure everyone in e audience got a copy of his debut, Issa Album. The rapper is in talks to drop a joint album fellow Atlanta native Nudy after releasing the official video for their most recent collaboration “Since When”, but the pair hasn’t mentioned any exact details just yet.
