It’s 2016, and sounding like someone/jacking somebody’s style is no longer something one hides or covers up. Earlier this year, a Louisiana rapper named Kyng that sounded awfully similar to Young Thug had surfaced. Now, a semi-lookalike and soundalike named 22 Savage has emerged. This rapper is actually the work of former comedian Mighty Mike, aka Funny Ass Mike. He explains why he adopted the character: “I just felt like jacking him. 22 Savage. I’m really a savage out here. I’m really in the slums. I’m in the trenches.” Listen to his most popular track, “Jumpin” above.
