21 Savage decided to stop by Complex News to chop it up with DJ Akademiks,Joe Budden, and Nadeska Alexis. During the discussion, the rapper had the following to say about rappers that make trap music from outside of ATL:
“Just ’cause some shit got an 808 [that doesn’t mean] it’s trap. These n**gas don’t know nothing about the trap. The trap is some Atlanta shit. That’s where trap comes from. It’s just like somebody rapping about reggae that’s not from Jamaica. [People from Atlanta can only talk about trapping], because we invented the word … You just got to be from the trap to know what trap is.”
