21 Savage and Young Thug are really close, except on Instagram apparently.
21 Savage and Young Thug are two of the biggest young rappers in the game right now and, as an added bonus, they seem to be pretty close friends. Coming up in the same ATL scene, the two have shared a close bond on and off stage, where they've grown into the kind of "ride or die" pals that the industry seems to see fewer and fewer of, if online beefs are to be taken seriously anyways. However, that doesn't mean that you can't still playfully call your bestie out when they're slacking on showing you some love on social media.
Case in point was 21 Savage's reaction to the above tweet by Young Thug, who basically let his followers know that, if you're someone that the Saint Laurent Don isn't down with, don't even bother pleading your case to him either. However, there was one small but crucial detail that 21 wanted to make clear to the general public: they may be close, but they're not Instagram follow-back close apparently.
"Why you don't follow me back on ig den?" asked the "Bank Account" rapper, who used a laughing face emoji to let the world know that there isn't actually any beef between the two of them. Young Thug didn't directly respond to the tweet as of this writing, but it's easy to see that the Beautiful Thugger Girls emcee still isn't counting 21 Savage among the people he follows on the 'Gram. In fact, he's only got one person that he's currently following on the platform: his Super Slimey co-star Future.
Fans reacted to the tweet in dramatic fashion as well, with some potentially blowing the situation a bit out of proportion. There was definitely some confusion as to whether the two rappers are still cool or not and, while we don't think that relationship is in jeopardy, the outcry from their fans was entertaining all the same. Check out a sampling of the reaction below.
