How much is 22 Savage worth? $500,000
How did 22 Savage earn his money and wealth?
22 Savage or MacArthur Johnson was born on 8th October 1996, in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. He created a sensation with his unique rapping style, with many similarities to the 21 savage rappers. As of 2018, 22 Savage’s net worth is $500,000.
At one point of time, he was in the news for the wrong reasons: murdering a budding rapper: Richard Phillips. The fight started at a convenience regarding a flyer that was pretty much outdated. Initially, they decided to settle the matter without the use of arms. Apparently, Richard Phillips went back on his word and approached MacArthur Johnson with his arms and that is when the fatal shots were fired. MacArthur was charged with obstruction of justice, illegal use of a weapon and also a second-degree murder. He later told the media and reporters that he had only fired in self-defense. He was released on bail which was reportedly set at $370,000.
Before he was 19, he used to rap as Mighty Mike. Being highly influenced by the much more celebrated rapper, 21 Savage, he began copying everything: style, voice and even songs! He got so over himself that in an interview, he claimed that he was “way better” than 21 Savage. Though many people are of the opinion he is copying style from 21 savage, but he has his own unique raping style which has garnered a lot of attention. His YouTube channel subscriptions and likes are growing rapidly day by day.
Previously, as few people know, he was a comedian but did not seem to gain popularity and that is when he decided to turn to rap. The reason why people believe that he is copying 21 savage is his dressing sense and quality of voice which are indeed similar.
Before he turned to rap, he had already garnered much attention for himself. He was reputed as a social media comedian. He enacted short memes, skits, impressions under the many monikers that he has. He also has a comic partner, Wings, who in truth is his half-brother. He signed a contract with the Travis James Entertainment Company. We look forward to more rap hits from him.
