21 Savage Announces New Phase of His Bank Account Campaign
For over a year, 21 Savage has been raising awareness about financial literacy through his Bank Account campaign. The I Am > I Was emcee unveiled a new phase of the campaign, and it’s set to have a major impact on the rapper’s hometown of Atlanta.
He teamed up with partners Get Schooled and Juma to bring 150 jobs to at-risk youth in Atlanta. Along with being enrolled in 21’s financial literacy workshops, Bank Account partner Juma will provide teenagers with jobs in various fields of sports and entertainment throughout the country.
“Each month I’ll release a new badge on GetSchooled.com where you can go deep into making money, credit, saving and investing,” the rapper explained in a promotional video released last month.
21 Savage previously teamed up with Get Schooled to donate $1,000 to teach teenagers about opening a bank account and introducing financial literacy, last March.
Inspired by the rapper’s Billboard Top 12 single, “Bank Account,” the campaign is one that’s close to his heart. “Now that I do have money in my bank account, I want to help kids with a background similar to mine to get smart about their money,” 21 Savage explained to Rolling Stone.
