While presenting gifts to families at his annual Grant-A-Wish event in Georgia, 21 Savage received a special gift from the state. According to TMZ, the rapper now has his very own day, 21 Savage Day, set to be celebrated annually on December 21.

Billy Mitchell, a Georgia State representative, held the proclamation ceremony during the event, which saw 21 and his Leading By Example Foundation distribute gifts and snacks to 100 local parents and their children. Mitchell presented the rapper with a certificate honoring his humanitarian efforts, which include teaching underserved youth about financial literacy via his 21 Savage Bank Account campaign.

“Growing up in Atlanta, the hustling energy just rubs off on you,” the rapper previously said. “Financial literacy is important because that’s one of the main things that you need to operate and be successful as an adult. I just wanted to come up with something that could help kids understand what to do with that money.”
