21 Savage Supervillain refers to a series of image macros featuring a picture of rapper and recording artist 21 Savage that people online say looks like a comic book villain.
On March 1st, 2017, rapper 21 Savage appeared on ESPN's Highly Questionable. During the appearance, 21 Savage appeared via satellite with a new haircut and in front of a green screen of a cityscape.
