There are those that say life imitates art, and so it would make sense that in 2017, at the height of superhero movie fandom (I’m looking at you, Logan), the world would get a new supervillain. And no, I’m not talking about the Lex Luthor-esque Donald Trump. I’m talking about 21 Savage.
During an appearance on ESPN’s Highly Questionable on Wednesday (Mar. 1), 21 Savage debuted a new hairdo in front of the backdrop of a cityscape. A screenshot was captured, and it didn’t take long for someone to make the comparison that he looked awfully villainous with the new ‘do. And it took even less time for everyone else to jump on board with this new theory.
And it’s hilarious:

This isn’t the first time a photo of 21 Savage has inspired a new line of memes, and at the rate he’s going (and the memes being made), I can only hope it won’t be the last.
