By all accounts, Young Thug and 21 Savage appear to be closer than just business associates. The typical Atlanta unity aside, they’re frequent collaborators, toured together last year, and most recently starred in a fashion campaign for Adidas.
While it appears to be all love between the fellow rappers, there's one, huge, online faux pas: Thugger apparently doesn’t follow 21 on Instagram.
On Wednesday evening (Nov. 15), Thug randomly sent out a tweet vocalizing his loyalty to the Issa Album rapper. Echoing Future’s infamous one-liner, “If young Metro don’t trust you…” Thugger wrote “If @21savage don’t f*ck with a n****, I don’t care if I’ve been around u… n**** it’s f*ck ya!!."
While the tweet was admirable at best, 21 took the opportunity to call out Thug for the social media etiquette on the 'gram. “Why you don’t follow me back on ig den?” 21 responded along with an emoji to indicate it was all tongue-in-cheek.
Thug assured 21 he would follow back, but that unfortunately still remains untrue considering the rapper is still only following one account on his Instagram: his Super Slimey cohort, Future.
Check out the hilarious exchange between Thugger and 21 that sent fans into a frenzy, below.
