“I feel like it’s important more than ever to give our next generation the tools to succeed in life,” the rapper in a statement.

21 Savage said he wants to empower youth to manage their money. His program will work with mobile banking service provider Chime and EverFi, an education technology platform. The rapper launched his Bank Account program in 2018 to teach financial literacy to teenage students across the United States.

The rapper’s single “A Lot” won a Grammy for best rap song earlier this year.
