21 Savage Mourns Younger Brother Terrell Davis, Who Was Stabbed To Death In London
Prior to Terrell Davis's murder, another one of the Grammy-winning rapper's brothers had been killed in a botched drug deal.
Grammy-winning rapper 21 Savage is in mourning after his younger brother Terrell Davis was stabbed to death in south London over the weekend.
“[I] can’t believe somebody took you baby bro I know I took my anger out on you I wish I could take that s--- back,” the rapper, whose real name is Shéyaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, posted on Instagram on Monday.
The post was accompanied by a photo of the brothers as children along with several recent pictures of Davis.
Davis was murdered in the south London district of Brixton on Sunday while bringing back groceries for his grandmother, the Daily Mail reports. He allegedly got in an argument with an old friend, who suddenly lunged and stabbed him, a family member told the paper. Davis was pronounced dead at the scene.
Like Abraham-Joseph, Davis was a rapper and went by the stage name TM1way. He was 27 years old.
“[Davis] was a really good rapper and was on the verge of doing big things. He wanted to be like his brother. Everyone is in shock,” the family member told the Daily Mail.
This isn’t the first time Abraham-Joseph has lost a sibling to murder. The rapper revealed in a 2016 interview with The Fader magazine that his brother Quantivayus Joseph was slain in a botched drug deal. He honors him with the tattoo of a dagger on his forehead.
Abraham-Joseph was born and raised in London before moving to the United States when he was 7, according to PEOPLE. In February 2019, he was accused of overstaying his visa and spent nine days in ICE custody. He was ultimately released on $100,000 bail. His immigration hearing has since been indefinitely postponed, Pitchfork reports.
As of Monday, no arrests had yet been made in Davis's murder, a police spokesperson told the Daily Mail.
