21 Savage has reflected on his relationship with TakeOff, who was shot and killed in Houston, Texas last week.
The Slaughter Gang rapper stopped by Akademiks’ Off The Record podcast, and said he had never seen TakeOff frustrated about anything.
“TakeOff the type of n-gga like if I see TakeOff arguing with a n-gga I know the other n-gga wrong,” Savage said. “Like automatically. He a man, he ain’t no bitch, he just not confrontational. He in his own world. He wanna do what he do.”
He continued, “He not really in the way, in the mix for real. He just always in his own world. He really quiet for real unless he know you. He funny as hell though, but if he know you type shit. I ain’t never seen that n-gga mad, had an attitude. I ain’t never seen him out of character. He always the exact same way everytime I see him. He’ll smile, dap you up. Mind his business bro.”
