  1. Mann he been in the A since he was 12-13. Spent more than half his life there he’s from the A.. Damn near the whole city riding with him so it’s no problem with him claiming what he claims.

    • +mrcooldeadly85 don’t they have a law though to where if you been in America for so long a certain amount of time and years then you automatically qualify for being a citizen if your paid taxes on a visa or you went to high school ?

    • mrcooldeadly85 21 Savage was raised in the United States from around the age of six or seven. Savage has lived in the U.S. for 3/4 of his life. I would consider him a U.S. citizen. Is that better, chump?

    • +mrcooldeadly85 quit replying to everyone, get off the internet and go get some money or something…its called a joke

    • People seem to be confused with where you’re from and where you are born. There’s a very big difference. He’s never said he was born in the A. He was raised there. Therefore that makes him from there. Celebs have done this forever. People are making this bigger than it is. Only difference is that his birthplace was obviously outside the US which means nothing. Hope he gets his immigration status worked out.

  2. Wait, asap is at LAX getting on a Delta flight?! Does that mean I could one day get on a flight and see him sitting in first class???? He doesn’t fly private jet?!

    • +mrcooldeadly85 You don’t understand we are not talking about immigration issues we are discussing him saying he is from Atlanta and that is his home, where he has lived since he was a child, where he grew up at, the place he met his closest friends, had his first girlfriend, and where he was introduced to hip hop. Atlanta made Savage who he is and it is his home. Nobody in Atlanta who grew up with him and went through the struggles with him cares that he wasn’t born there they already knew that. Savage has just as much right to claim Atlanta that Pac had to claim LA. Actually even more since he has been in Atlanta since he was 13 and Pac was in Baltimore throughout his early teens.

    • +Ricky Hunt you couldn’t have said it any better a few times. It would be pointless to further explaining it to him 😂

    • It’s one thing to call a place home-even if you wasnt born there. it’s another to lie/hide about where you come from. Dont conflate the two. Pac ain’t never lie about where he was from.

  3. Not a fan of Savage. However it doesn’t matter where you’re born it matters where you came of age the area that made you who you are and that Seems to be Atlanta for Savage so he should be able to claim it.

    • It does matter because that means he’s here illegally and committed crimes in America. By law he should’ve been deported and take away his visa. The Supreme Court going to rule in their favor and Savage will have to go back.
