on the US Rap chart as well as #9 on the US R&B/Hip-Hop chart and #30 on the Billboard 200 chart. 21 Savage's single "X" (with Metro Boomin featuring Future) reached #13 on the US Rap chart and #17 on the US R&B/Hip-Hop chart as well as #47 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

He released his second studio album in October 2017. 21 Savage was featured on the single "Sneakin'" by Drake which reached #8 on the US R&B and #10 on the US Rap charts. 21 Savage released his third studio album, I Am > I Was, on December 21, 2018. It debuted on the Billboard chart at No. 1, making it his first U.S. No. 1 album. In January 2020, 21 Savage won a Grammy award for Best Rap Song along with J. Cole for their song "a lot".In March 2018, 21 Savage announced the creation of the 21 Savage Bank Account Campaign (named after his hit song "Bank Account") on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, he also announced that he was donating $21,000 to the cause. He stated, "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."
On February 15, 2019, 21 Savage turned himself in to authorities and was booked into a south Georgia jail in response to a warrant for his arrest for felony theft by deception. This dispute surrounds a gig arranged in 2016 for which the rapper allegedly accepted a payment of $17,000 to appear at a concert, but did not appear and did not give back the money. He was released on his own recognizance, pending a court hearing on a later date to resolve the charge. “I had a platinum album before I signed my [first] deal,” he shared during the podcast episode. “I own my masters right now. Every song you’ve ever heard me on, I own it. I got a 70/30 split with my label. I get 70, they get 30. I make more money off my album sales than I do off touring. [For] a lot of rappers, most of their money comes from touring.”
“I done been around other rappers and we was at the same spot at the same time and they jumped the gun and went and signed a deal for $200,000 because they didn’t have enough leverage,” he continued. “I waited ’til I had enough leverage to go in there and say, ‘Ay, I want this much money for this album. I’m giving y’all this much and I’m keeping all this.’” “ASMR”, a song from 21 Savage’s second studio album I Am > I Was, caused some controversy with its lyrics. The lyrics included “We been gettin’ that Jewish money, everything is kosher.” The lyrics came under fire for perpetuating negative Jewish stereotypes when LeBron James shared an Instagram story quoting the track. 21 Savage later apologized, saying on Twitter that “The Jewish people I know are very wise with there [sic] money so that’s why I said we been gettin’ Jewish money. I never thought anyone would take offense, I’m sorry if I offended everybody, never my intention – I love all people.” (Source: allfamousbirthday.com)
