“Can’t believe somebody took you baby bro,” the UK-born rapper said in an Instagram tribute alongside a throwback photo of himself with brother Terrell Davis, a 27-year-old drill rapper known as TM1way.
“I know I took my anger out on you I wish I could take that s–t back,” the Grammy winner told his 11.8 million followers.
His half-brother was killed Sunday in Lambeth in South London while taking his grandmother shopping to help during the pandemic, a family source told DailyMail.com.
“He was coming back to the house when he saw an old friend,” the source said. “They started arguing over something and then suddenly he stabbed him. It was completely out of the blue,” the source told the Mail.
“Terrell didn’t have any enemies that I knew of and he wasn’t involved with any gangs. He just focused on his music.
“He was really good rapper and was on the verge of doing big things. He wanted to be like his brother. Everyone is in shock,” the friend said.
Davis and 21 Savage — who was born in east London as Shéyaa Bin Abraham-Joseph — share the same father, Kevin Emmons.
The star emigrated to the US with his mother when he was seven, eventually becoming a major player in the Atlanta rap scene.
“He’ll be devastated,” the family friend said of the loss of his brother who was “a good guy.”
London’s Met Police did not identify the victim of Sunday’s 6 p.m. stabbing, who was pronounced dead at the scene. No arrests have been made, the force said, with specially trained officers helping his next of kin.
