21 Savage says he doesn’t put himself on the same level as Drake and J.Cole because he still has more work to do.
“There’s just a difference, bro. That’s, like, years of work and a fanbase that is going to be there until they die, that’s different. I feel like I’m working to be on that level that they’re on, but I don’t feel like it’s the same. I feel I could do something corny, and I would lose a lot of what I got. That wouldn’t happen with them,” he told Complex.
Drake and 21 Savage had one of the biggest selling albums of 2022, but Savage acknowledges that Drake is still the bigger star out of the two.
He added: “Drake could do whatever, Cole could do whatever, and they’re shit not going anywhere. I’m working toward that level for sure, but I don’t think I’m there yet. I’m not saying I’m light-years behind. They’re more solidified, and I’m still building on what I got. But I could be wrong… It’s all about how the fans look at it.”
