21 Savage Gives Away Free Computers at 5th Annual Back to School Drive


As students prepare to head back to school with virtual learning due to COVID-19, 21 Savage made it his duty to give back in a major way.

The GRAMMY award winning artist partnered with Chime, Leading By Example Foundation and Momma Flystyle for his 5th Annual Issa Back2School Drive in Decatur Ga on August 15th.

Unlike his previous outdoors back to school drives with activities for kids and a main stage; this year it was held in doors with limited traffic flowing inside the building for COVID-19 precautions. Everyone was required to wear a mask as only 10 people were allowed in the building at a time.

21 Savage gave away needed essentials including school supplies, mask, and added to the list for the first time, free laptops. The computers were for Dekalb County students and came in a bag that included free headphones by Bass Jaxx, and an easy to read personal finance 101 booklet presented by 21 Savage and Chime.

The rapper partnered with Chime back in July 2020 for his Bank Account at Home Financial Literacy Project. The project is a free online program to educated people on the tools needed to learn about saving and making money.

Definitely a major way to give back in his community!
