The rapper, who was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia, wrote on Twitter on August 8: "Atlanta, We Have To Do Better.

A fan brought attention to Savage's own lyrics about gun violence by quoting the rapper's line from his most recent Drake collaboration, "Jimmy Crooks," "spin a block twice like it ain't nowhere to park," even though many Twitter users agreed with him.
A song is for entertainment; it's not a guide on how to live life, Savage countered in response to the fan.
In real life, I donate a lot of money and educate my neighborhood about money matters. Stop trying to make me 1 dimensional. "
Savage’s comments came after he hosted the seventh annual “Issa Back to School Drive” in his hometown of Decatur, GA.
