21 Savage is maturing right before our eyes, back in February, his manager MEEZY took to Twitter to announce the Atlanta rapper would no longer spend his hard-earned money on jewelry, and would instead put his funds toward business investments, cryptocurrency, and real estate.

During a recent feature for Vogue magazine, 21 addressed his decision to stop wearing flashy accessories, stating that jewelry was too played out and unnecessary.
“I stopped wearing jewelry for a couple of reasons,” he explained while headed to the Saint Laurent Spring/Summer 2019 menswear show in NYC. “One is because everybody wears jewelry. I outgrew it; I’m getting a little wiser and growing so … Another reason is because the richest people that I’ve ever met in my life, they’ve never had on jewelry. Every time I meet someone who’s very, very rich, like wealthy, I’ve never seen them with jewelry on.”
“And ever since I’ve been saving money and not spending it on jewelry, I’ve been getting way richer.”
Maybe other rappers should take note.
