The British brother of rapper 21 Savage was stabbed to death ‘during an argument with a friend’ on an estate in South London, it has been revealed.
Terrell Davis was murdered last night on the Blenheim Gardens estate in Brixton.
Mr. Davis, a 27-year-old drill rapper known as TM1way, was shopping with his grandmother when he got into a fight with an old friend, who suddenly jumped forward and stabbed him, a family source said.
Mr. Davis and 21 Savage, who were born in Plaistow, East London before immigrating to the US as a child, have the same father, Kevin Emmons.
The source said: ‘I don’t know if Savage has already been told because he’s in America, but they’re brothers.
‘They used to talk a lot on the phone and via WhatsApp. I don’t think Savage has been back in the UK for a while because he’s had legal trouble in the US. ‘

Atlanta-based rapper 21 Savage, whose name is She’yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph but also goes by the surname Emmons, was arrested last year by US immigration officials because his visa expired in 2006.
He was brought to America by his mother when he was a seven-year-old child.
The 28-year-old Grammy-nominated artist was released after paying a $ 100,000 bond.
The source added: ‘He will be devastated, but the whole family is.
“Terrell was a good guy, he used to live on the estate but had moved.
“But he was visiting his grandmother yesterday and went to the store for her because she’s older and we’re in the middle of a pandemic.

He came back to the house when he saw an old friend. This was someone he had known for a long time.
They started arguing about something and then he suddenly stabbed him. It came completely out of the blue.
“Terrell had no enemies I knew and he was not involved in gangs. He just focused on his music.
He was a really good rapper and was about to do great things. He wanted to be like his brother. Everyone is in shock. ‘
Mr. Davis was found with a stab wound just before 6 p.m. last night.
Police were present, but he was pronounced dead on the spot.
A local resident told MailOnline: ‘I was playing on my PlayStation when there was a commotion outside.
I looked out and a young man stumbled around and then fell into a small hedge.
‘It’s terrible. In general, this estate is quiet, but there is a lot of crime in the areas around it. ‘
Relatives of Mr. Davis gathered at his grandmother’s house today. A relative said, “We just want to be able to grieve in peace.”
The Metropolitan Police said there were no arrests yet.
