Breakout rapper 21 Savage adds another dimension to his rising career as the star of the animated series The Year 2100. The first of six one-minute episodes premieres on series creator WeBuyGold’s Instagram page today. However, Billboard viewers can access the first episode below.
21 Savage voices himself in The Year 2100, in which he appears as an animated super villain who controls the world with his music. His evil sidekick and advisor is an Alexa-like device named Tootie. The feature was inspired by an image taken from the rapper/songwriter’s guest stint on ESPN’s Highly Questionable. The image, which zeroed in on 21 Savage’s signature sly smile, wild hair and hand gestures, sparked a viral meme that characterized him as a comic book super villain.
