21 Savage found himself in hot water over his recent comments over Nas’ release of Kings Disease 3. The Her Loss rapper found himself in a heated debate on Clubhouse over the weekend when he stated, “What y’all saying, relevant though? I don’t feel like he’s relevant. I just feel like he got fans.”
The ATL native added, “He’s not relevant, he just has a loyal a– fan base. He just has a loyal fan base and he still make good-a– music.”
Nas fans did not take 21’s comments lightly and quickly began coming for him on social media. Nas’ brother and rapper Jungle hopped in The Shaderoom’s comments section and wrote, “21 Savage is trash. Glad Nas dropped KD3 so fans can hear real bars. 21 can you do something for me? (laughing emojis),” in reference to the viral line from 21 and Drake’s “Rich Flex.”
21 wasn’t for the internet twisting his words and spoke up about the comments and decided to clarify his remarks.”I would never disrespect Nas or any legend who paved the way for me,” he tweeted. “Y’all be tryna take stuff and run with it.”

Despite the comment mishap, 21 has been doing well music-wise. The rapper just dropped a joint album with Drake titled Her Loss. The album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 dethroning Taylor Swift’s Midnights. This is 21’s third No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 and Drake’s 12th. Additionally, all 16 tracks made their way to the Billboard Hot 100 with eight tracks making it to the top 10. Her Loss is Drake’s second No. 1 album of 2022, following Honestly, Nevermind, which dropped back in June.
