Attendance at the back to school drive doubled and nearly 1000 pairs of shoes were given to kids along with 1500 backpacks, 1300 uniforms and school supplies such as folders, paper, and pens.

21 spoke on his philanthropic efforts with Francesca Amiker of Atlanta’s 11 Alive…

If you can remember, 21 Savage is actually really dedicated to philanthropic activities with Atlanta’s inner-city youth of Atlanta. Recently during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show21 launched his “Bank Account” charitable campaign, which teaches financial responsibility and helped a group of young adults open their first bank accounts. He kicked off this campaign by donating $21k or $1,000 to 21 kids in partnership with award-winning non-profit organization, Get Schooled.
