Rapper 21 Savage is mourning the death of his younger brother, Terrell Davis, who was reportedly killed in south London on Sunday 22 November.

Davis, also a rapper known as TM1way, was stabbed during an argument with a friend in Brixton, according to MailOnline.  

“Can’t believe somebody took you baby bro,” Savage, born Shéyaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, wrote on Instagram.

“I know I took my anger out on you I wish I could take that s*** back”

He shared two photos: one of him and Davis as children, and another of Davis as an adult. The pair shared a father, Kevin Emmons.

A police spokesperson said: “Police are investigating a fatal stabbing after they were called at 17:59hrs on Sunday 22 November by the London Ambulance Service to a location in Ramillies Close, Lambeth, SW2.

“Officers attended, along with colleagues from the London Air Ambulance, but the 27-year-old man was pronounced dead at the scene.

“The man's next of kin have been informed and they are being supported by specially trained officers.”

The statement concluded: “No arrests have been made at this stage. A crime scene remains in place at the location, and officers are continuing their enquires.”

Savage lost another younger brother, Quantivayus – who was known as Tayman – after he was shot during a botched drug deal. An interview with Fader revealed Savage got his famous dagger face tattoo in honour of him.

Savage was born in the UK and brought to the United States as a child. In February 2019, controversy erupted after he was the subject of a “targeted operation” by ICE and placed in federal immigration custody.
