21 Savage has donned a new look with his hairstyle, and fans on social media are loving every bit of it.

On Sunday, the Atlanta rap star took to his Instagram with a picture of his new braided hairdo, a sharp change from the hairstyle he had for the last few years. In his Instagram photo, 21 shows off the braids, his fresh Nike Tech sweatsuit, and matching Air Force 1s and shades to complete the look. 

According to his caption, 21 was tired of people making fun of his original hairstyle, often known as sister locs. He also shared a snippet of Mario's 2002 single "Braid My Hair."

"Got tired of the sister loc comments," 21 wrote in the caption of his post.

Several of 21's peers and fans chimed in on the new look in the comment section and praised the rapper for changing things up. 

"πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ naw that's hard n***a," Jacquees wrote. YG added, "THUG'd OUT."

Mario even commented, saying, "Myyyy n***a πŸ”₯."

In addition to his new look, 21 Savage has announced a special eight-date European tour which will take him through France, Germany, the Netherlands, and Switzerland en route to his heralded Nov. 30 gig in London. 

The run of show will kick off Nov. 14 in Paris and see fellow Atlanta MCs Lil Harold and Baby Drill as support. Presale tickets launch Oct. 18 at 9 a.m. local time, and general sales kick off Oct. 20 at 9 a.m. local time.
