Fresh off the release of his debut Album, Issa, 21 Savage continues his press run with a stop at The Breakfast Club. During his interview, the Atlanta rapper opened up about his growth as an artist, adjusting to the celebrity treatment, and (of course) his relationship with Amber Rose.
With the conversation inevitably turning to Amber, DJ Envy enquired if 21 consulted the "Slut Walk" founder's ex-husband, Wiz Khalifa, prior to going public with their relationship. "Nah, we ain't have no conversation," the 24-year-old revealed. "I just saluted him. But we ain't talk."
The duo have been an item since last month after being spotted leaving a Los Angeles night club together. Even more fuel was added to the fire after 21 fawned over an Instagram post in which Amber bared her rose bush. “I love it that’s how I like it thanks @amberrose /ni**a go gun u down tonight @amberrose ni**a just said stop at Walmart n get some Jergens lotion she playing with a g she killed dis mf pic!!,” he wrote under the viral photo.
It's pretty amazing waking up every morning feeling love like this. I've cried endlessly and been hurt a lot in my life, I've been abused, talked to like I wasn't shit, been gaslighted and Slut shamed by men that I once loved and cared about. So I'm so thankful that God brought this amazing person in my life who genuinely has my back and is ready to "pull up" to defend my honor by any means. Maybe he's just as broken as me and that's why we're perfect for each other but either way he's not going anywhere and neither am I.
The "No Heart" rapper went on to admit that Amber has actually opened his eyes to different, more positive perspectives on societal double standards. Check out the full interview below.
