It’s been three years since the inception of CRANIUM and we’ve really used this time to find out who we are and what we stand for. Yes, we make clothes, but that’s only an extension of the culture we’re trying to help build. The youth have been misguided, a vision doesn't become a reality overnight. It takes late nights, countless hours of dedication, and a strong mindset to get through all of the struggles and failures that come with this lifestyle. Nevertheless, you have to protect your vision at all costs and block out all negativity and doubts. Everyone won't relate, but CRANIUM is for the few who make sacrifices, take major risks, and remain loyal to the real ones around them.
As we head into the new year, with whatever you do, forget all the haters and make it happen yourself.

He may not be with all the internet sh*t, but it’s played an integral role in his success. 21 Savage seems to have appeared out of thin air. If you were really paying attention, you might have caught “Skrt Skrt” or “Red Opps” in the past year, but for most, his joint project with Metro Boomin is the first real look at his potential. From what we’ve heard, he reaps what he sows and is unapologetic in doing so.
The Atlanta rapper weaves his tale with a hypnotic flow and relentless bars. With cosigns from Future and some of Atlanta’s biggest names, he appears to have complete control of his destiny. He’s only done a handful of shows, so when RSVP Gallery got an invite from the team at Cranium, we jumped at the opportunity to get a firsthand look at 21 Savage. Check out the video above and the photos below for a quick at his show in Washington, D.C.
