Who is Savage?
Demetrius Savelio, better known by his stage name Savage, is a New Zealand rapper of Samoan descent, and a former member of hip hop group the Deceptikonz. In 2009, he became the first New Zealand hip hop artist in history to have a commercial single achieve platinum certification status in the United States for selling over one million copies. The "International Breakthrough" accolade of the Pacific Music Awards was created in his honour. He is not to be confused with Savage of the underground Atlanta- and Bronx-based hip hop group Hard Knocks, which released one album in 1992.
