21 Savage continues to regularly use the social media app Clubhouse despite its popularity declining after the tragedy, and found himself at the center of heated controversy during a recent interview.
Audio of the interaction went viral on Monday (January 16), featuring 21 angry people getting into it with a man from Chicago. Although what they were stressing didn’t make it into the one-minute clip, the end result is His loss rapper promising that his opponent will die.
“You waited for this moment your whole life, so you could argue with n-gga in the Clubhouse,” 21 says in the clip. “You keep letting all these Chicago n-ggas grow in your head, like y’all n-gga ain’t dead in real life, man. Stop playing.
“Every n-gga that we work with, 30 of them are gangsters are pulled over and nothing happens to us,” he continues. “In real life, n-gga. It’s real life!”
Screams from others can be heard briefly before 21 adds more.
“Hey Cap, you from Chicago. I advise you to shut up,” he says. You don’t hit anything, n-gga… You’re gonna die.”
He repeated his last comment several times before the sound cut off.

21 Savage made headlines for his Clubhouse interaction last month as well, though that time he served as the mediator when Meek Mill and Akademiks got into a fight.
When Ak started yelling at Meek for calling him out on his social media activity, 21 tried to defuse the situation, pointing out that there is a different way to post on Instagram.
“We all play a part in the way things are these days because we all benefit from it,” 21 said in the leaked clip. “You gotta start showing that you really love and you want to change too, because a nigga like me, I could rap what I rap and never do anything and be like, ‘Man, I don’t give a fuck, whatever, whatever’ and just live my life.
“But I got a heart, bro. And at the end of the day, I know you got a heart because I know you … let’s try to make shit better. We’re not telling you to ‘stop posting beef … you’re not beef, you’re just turning it on beef that doesn’t need a light on.”
Afterwards, Meek praised 21 Savage for keeping his head straight.
“I’m sorry if I cut anyone off, I’ll be breaking my heart,” Meek tweeted. “If you were there, know that it was a good beginning of communication in hip hop! The way 21 handled it inspired me and was very important!”
