THE heartbroken best friend of rapper 21 Savage's brother today said “my whole heart is shattered” after he was knifed to death in South London.
Drill rapper Terrell Davis, 27, was fatally knifed just yards from his family's home in Brixton on Sunday.
Terrell – known by his rap name TM1Way – was attacked after going to the shops to buy milk for his gran on the Blenheim Gardens estate, it is claimed.
An old friend lunged at him and knifed him when a row broke out, according to reports.
A neighbour said paramedics battled in vain to save him as his family and friends wept at the scene.
His best friend, known only as Bilqees, said her heart is “shattered” and added that she is “lost for words”.
'LOST FOR WORDS'
She wrote on Instagram: “I can’t believe I’m here writing this. My whole heart is shattered by the thought that you’re gone. I’m just lost for words in all aspects.
“Tman was different from everyone else, he was unique, if you saw him coming from a mile you’re gonna see his smile because Tman’s most worn feature was his smile.
“He was so supportive in many ways, the most jovial person I could ever meet and it’s so sad that I’ll never be able to hear you say Billy or hear your laugh again.
“I’m just lost at this point I can’t lie. He was just calm and easy-going and always laughing or making you laugh.
“Just the other day I spoke to you and told you I missed you. I didn’t even get to see you, now look you’re gone.
“Rest in Peace Tman. I still can’t believe this.”
I can’t believe I’m here writing this. My whole heart is shattered by the thought that you’re gone."
Her heartfelt message comes after rapper 21 Savage paid tribute after his brother was stabbed to death.
The Atlanta-based rapper shared a childhood photo of him and Terrell on Instagram to his 11.8million followers.
He wrote: "Can’t believe somebody took you baby bro I know I took my anger out on you I wish I could take that s**t back."
Terrell and Shéyaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, known as 21 Savage, have the same father Kevin Emmons.
Other devastated friends paid tribute to Terrell today.
Hillary, 56, a close family friend, said: "He was jovial. You would see him from a distance and he always seemed smiling.
"He was very helpful. The lady down at the bottom when I showed her the picture she burst out crying and said, he always helped her with his groceries.
"I know he came to his grandmother's every Sunday for his dinner. They say he left for his grandmother to go to the shops."
Colleen Scott, 56, added: "He was a lovely guy, helpful guy.
"He was an affectionate person. If he sees you coming with your bags he's the first to come and assist.
"Nothing bad to say about him. It was so sad."
Another neighbour, 36, said: "When the paramedics came they tried to do CPR.
Can’t believe somebody took you baby bro I know I took my anger out on you I wish I could take that s**t back."
"After that when they realised the person died I saw all the people start to cry and say, 'No, no, no.
"There were lots of people there. I don’t know if they were all family."
A handwritten tribute next to the floral shrine erected in Terrell's memory read: "Dearest Terrell, step into the light so I can see you.
"Step into the light so I can hold you. Step into the light so I can kiss you.
"I hear you say, "I'm already within the light that you carry in your heart".
Cops attended on Sunday night but he was pronounced dead at the scene. No arrests have been made.
21 Savage was born in East London before he moved to the US as a child.
He is based in Atlanta and was arrested by US immigration officers last year because his visa had expired in 2006.
A Scotland yard spokesman said: "Police are investigating a fatal stabbing after they were called at 17:59hrs on Sunday 22 November by the London Ambulance Service to a location in Ramillies Close, Lambeth, SW2.
"Officers attended, along with colleagues from the London Air Ambulance, but the 27-year-old man was pronounced dead at the scene."
