A man has been charged with the murder of 21 Savage’s brother, Terrell Davis.
The 27-year-old drill rapper, who went by TM1way, was stabbed to death following an argument with a friend in South London on Nov. 22.
On Sunday, the Metropolitan Police charged Tyrece Fuller of Lambeth with his murder. The 21-year-old suspect is due to appear in court on Monday.
Davis was shopping for his elderly grandmother during the pandemic when he bumped into an old friend. The two reportedly got into an argument before the man suddenly lunged forward and stabbed him, a family source said.
“He was coming back to the house when he saw an old friend. This was someone he’d known for a long time,” a source told the Daily Mail. “They started arguing over something and then suddenly he stabbed him. It was completely out of the blue.”
21 shared a heartbreaking tribute to his little brother on Instagram. “Can’t believe somebody took you baby bro I know I took my anger out on you I wish I could take that shit back,” he wrote alongside a childhood photo of him and Terrell.
His family has also sought counseling to cope with the tragedy, according to the Met police. “Terrell’s family are distraught and we are providing them with support via specially trained officers as they begin to grieve for him,” a spokesperson told The Guardian.
Terrell and 21 Savage both grew up in Newham, East London, and have the same father, Kevin Emmons. Savage, born She’yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, was brought to the U.S. by his mother when he was 7 years old.
