“He just told me his top three things that he spent his money on,” 21 told Hoffa. “We ain’t really have no financial conversation. He just was like, ‘Chef’; I went and got a chef. ‘A doctor’; I went and got a doctor. And he said a lawyer; I already had a lawyer at the time.”
When asked if these changes had positively impacted his life, the Savage Mode rapper replied, “Hell yeah. I had a lawyer, but the chef, hell yeah ’cause I eat cleaner, I don’t really gotta leave the house as much. And the doctor is convenient too; I hate hospitals and shit, so it’s good to have on call.”
In a surfaced text exchange, Hov elaborated a bit more on why he said what he said to 21.
“‘Why a doctor’, Can’t make no money / or spend money without your health, ha!” the message read. “Freedom / lawyer / deals / lawyer…Chef / quality of life !”

Elsewhere in the interview, 21 Savage also spoke about how JAY-Z freed him from Immigration and Customs Enforcement in 2019 after the British-born rapper had overstayed his visa.
“I called Meek [Mill] while I was in jail and told Meek like, ‘Bruh, I just got locked up,’” he recalled. “He called JAY-Z and JAY-Z put a lawyer on my case. He played a role in getting me out of there, for sure. Meek put that together.”
He added Hov only assists those he truly respects.
“You gotta be a certain type of n-gga,” 21 said. “He ain’t doing that shit for anybody just ’cause you rap. You gotta be from a certain cloth and n-ggas gotta be able to look at you and hear about you and know, ‘He like us.’ I ain’t Roc Nation or none of that shit, so he really did that shit just off the strength.”
