Today marks a historical moment for Mr. "Bank Account," 21 Savage. The young star made his daytime television debut on none other than The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

On Tuesday (Mar 13), the rapper confidently blazed the stage with his hit single, "Bank Account", from his debut album, Issa Album. With a green, foggy stage to match his Green Gucci ensemble, 21 effortlessly ran through the track. As he continued to flow about his mula and expensive tastes, dollar bills flooded the gigantic LCD screen behind him.

After the peformance, Ellen spoke with Savage about his new educational initiative. "I started the 21 Savage Bank Account Campaigned," he shared. "It's to help kids learn how to save their money and make money, and open up bank accounts." 21's manager, Stone Mound Meezy later confirmed that iniative was actually a part of 21's new non-profit organization, Leading By Example. Meezy continued the praises sharing Savage donated $21,000 to "Get Schooled" helping to create bank accounts for young people, teach them about building credit, and grow in financial literacy.

Later, Meezy shared that financial literacy has actually become a serious part of Savage's life as the rapper recently declared to no longer wear jewelry anymore, but instead, invest in businesses and the community.

"21 Savage making a choice to not wear jewelry but put his money in the community does not change the content of his music.... Savage came out rapping for the “have nots” when you get some money you get blinded blowing your money on them bullsh*t funds," Meezy tweeted.

Congratulations on both a successful televison debut and community work, 21!
