for saying that wrong I've never been know early on MacArthur he was inspired by artists like Busey and Kevin but not so much Baton Rouge native Kevin gates in fact he wanted to be more like Kevin Hart mother anchors you know I see how he settle out arenas you know saying big arenas 15,000 people he knows that although before attempting to a personally 21 savage well there was apparently a plan for Mike to impersonate Kevin gates career when drinka came picked me up from them gates and keep asking me questions she thought something was wrong with me she's saying but what you wanna do I'm him on the website of the record label that Mike would eventually sign to will they listen his upcoming mixtape title as almost the exact same name as the tape that gates had out at the time so maybe he had this plan all along but you know we'll get to that I'm a multi-talented person brother I don't strap myself between one Talent you know I go out and it but I also got this you know McArthur knew he wanted to be a famous entertainer but he didn't know how he was gonna make it all happen now although he would rap for fun at first he thought his dreams would be come true through comedy now he started posting funny videos up on to a few different social media accounts that have since been deleted though they included the names mighty Mike funny ass Mike girl he funny Mac too funny but his first viral video was on Facebook and YouTube and it was called firecracker challenge and here he was going by the name of Lil Matt he was also posting songs at the time under the name of Lil Mac and while he gained a small local fanbase well his vine in his Instagram videos they started to blow up and he gained a real following under the name of mighty Mike and funny that's Mike yeah ya see my see my Instagram was already you know yeah you're popular not saying you know I was like you know 200 you well saying you didn't Baker hi school in there everyone knew about his comedy and he was a popular guy now we even made a song for his high school under the rap name Little Mac called BHS anthem and he performed it at a school pep rally McArthur graduated from high school and continued to grow his online following but his comedy career was put on hold when he was sent to juvenile detention he was released on bond and with a new appreciation for his life he began ramping up his comedy doing pranks and skits with his high school friend wings now the two became a duo known as wings and Mike and at the time when asked about his future goals police stated yeah I see myself owning a big news a sudden you know sent some type of major labels you know but before he could do that he signed to Travis James Entertainment as a comedy act now first they didn't even know about his music career but shortly afterwards he released his single hit that bit for the gram it's actually a pretty good song yeah that's catchy they're using mighty Mike as his rap name well the single it gained over 400,000 views online and had many fans excited for more he'll sweat major labels calling and wanting to sign him to a deal but it was in May of 2016 that things took a turn for the worst once again when MacArthur was charged with second degree murder for an altercation with another man now according to police reports the two got into an altercation outside of a supermarket while the victim was passing out party flyers in the parking lot now Johnson admitted to shooting the victim claiming it was in self-defense his bond was placed at three hundred and seventy thousand dollars but somehow Mike he got the money and eventually he was released so he moved on to his next venture now it's still unclear how he sourced the bail money but mike says they need money prior to rap either way Mike he was looking for a way to get put on quickly and it just so happened that at the time a rapper by the name of 21 savage well he was becoming a massive star no may not be obvious out of context but Mike he looks a lot like 21 Savage and what we didn't know was the first time that Mike well he actually teamed up with a PR company to plot out how they could make his career go viral Mike came up with the idea to unapologetically imitate one of the most popular rappers out now after a free style online of him sang it's 22 not know 21 went viral well he decided to take new rap moniker and see how far he could take it now the PR company who was working on this well they had this to say our publicity company loves the bold brave scandalous outspoken dangerous cutting-edge and controversial artists twenty-two savage came up with an amazing idea and it's great to be able to help light up the internet with it this kid is a star point blank the moniker was twenty-two savage now you probably remember seeing his videos at the time or at least memes with him in it now we released the song with the same name as 21s hit no heart and the video well it went pretty viral no the video is over 2.6 million views along with 25,000 thumbs up to 12,000 thumbs down now Mike he completely took 20 ones flow his tone and even his ad-libs the kid clearly knew what he was doing he dropped three separate diss tracks towards 21 and they went viral with the song ain't no 21 getting nearly 10 million views on world star hip hop's YouTube channel sorry that was a long sentence he was getting so much traction that 22 he even got a response from 21 himself that's what TV like oh get off in deep for the money you pay me and even fitty said he was trying to set up a boxing match between 21 to 22 savage for the namesake we tried to put together 21 to 22 savage they're gonna fight for the name and do this we only gonna have one set all right now eventually Mike he decided to drop the name 22 and instead he went by young 22 for a while now we can't say for sure if it was because of threats from savages team but based on his lyrics and his interviews well I feel like 21 savage just ain't the kind of guy you want to be beefing with it's nice what is the cross on your forehead signify it's a knife since then mike has seen a lot of success online tropics to the hilarious songs his dance challenges has blogged some online shows and being an overall entertaining personality on his YouTube channel in 2018 funny Mike he joined the cast of wall now for season 11
