The FBI recently compiled data that shows Atlanta’s murder rate being higher than Chicago, NBC 11Alive reports. The new data sparked a reaction out of Ninth Ward’s own 21 Savage.
21 Savage posted the article onto his IG Story, writing, “Y’all n****s better tighten up.”
Though Atlanta’s crime rate declined over the last decade, the city’s murder rate rose 32 percent during a four-year period.
The city recorded 84 murders in 2013. In 2016, the city reported 111 murders, a 32 percent increase.
The FBI compiled data revealing Chicago had 11.6 murders per hundred thousand people. Atlanta had 12.3 murders per hundred thousand.
Forbes released its annual list for America’s most dangerous cities in June. Forbes compiled stats for the homicide rate per 100,000 residents over the last five years.
Chicago was ranked number 16 on the list. In 2016, Chicago recorded its worst record for homicides in nearly two decades with 762 murders, 3,550 shooting incidents and 4,331 shooting victims, Forbes reports.
G Herbo posted the list onto his IG account, saying there are war zones everywhere.
