BROOKLYN, NY - NOVEMBER 05: 21 Savage attends the CFDA / Vogue Fashion Fund 15th Anniversary Event at Brooklyn Navy Yard on November 5, 2018 in Brooklyn, New York.

The man who stabbed and killed 21 Savage’s brother, Terrell Davis-Emmons, in November of last year, has been sentenced to prison for 10 years.

22-year-old Tyrece Fuller was found guilty of stabbing 21 Savage’s younger brother Davis-Emmons to death with a six-inch Rambo knife and sentenced to 10 years in prison on charges of manslaughter per HotNewHipHop.

According to the Daily Mail, Davis-Emmons was walking with his grandmother in South London with Fuller approached him with a knife. Both men had been armed when the fight broke out, but Fuller lunged at his victim after he had put his machete back into its sheath. Fuller claimed that Davis-Emmons threatened him over a £800 debt which led to the fight.

The 22-year-old killer refused to leave prison to attend the sentencing hearing for his conviction which prompted the judge to remark on his “lack of courage,” per HotNewHipHop.

“Mr. Davis-Emmons was obviously a very well-loved son, grandson and brother, who cared for his disabled brother, and was a talented musician. He looked after people in his community and had positive plans for the future. The victim’s personal statement graphically described how Terell Davis-Emmons’s death has devastated his family and those who knew and loved him,” Justice John Cavanaugh said, per the outlet. “This is yet another tragic example of the curse of knife crime in London. A young man’s life has needlessly been cut short by the willingness of young men to pick up a knife or blade and to use it when there are far easier and far safer and better ways of resolving the situation.”

Upon hearing the news of his brother’s death, the Grammy-winning rapper posted a throwback photo of the two with the caption, “can’t believe somebody took you baby bro I know I took my anger out on you I wish I could take that s— back.” The rapper has yet to comment on the sentencing.
