21 explained that he was in the passenger seat when a tragic incident occurred.

21 Savage continued, “So I know, n****, this shit gets nasty fast, like that, you know what I’m sayin’? So it’s like, I’m just paranoid always, 24/7, nigga I think someone is following me I spin the block several times before entering the house.

“I feel like it was a freak accident, one thousand percent,” the rapper said.

“It’s the worst,” he said. “I don’t know if it’s because I know him more than I know them, but this is one of them where it’s like, ‘Damn! Him?!’ Niggas say that every time, but it’s really one of them like, ‘Fuck! What the fuck?'”

He added that Takeoff was not a confrontational person. “He’s really quiet unless he knows you,” he said. “Very funny if he knows you.”

“He’s still exactly the same every time I see him,” 21 said. “He’ll smile and dope you and mind his own business.”

“A lot of people are going to learn from this and realize that a lot of bullshit isn’t worth it,” he said. “We have one life, there is no re-back,” he said. “It doesn’t last a thousand years.”

He added that “all the beef that exists is not worth it”.

“I’m not trying to argue,” he said. “I don’t want to do certain things that lead to fights. I’d rather be at home playing the game on Clubhouse with my kids.”
