Chime put out a new promotional campaign narrated by 21 Savage to coincide with the release of the campaign.  

“Growing up in Atlanta, the hustling energy just rub off on you,” 21 Savage says in the promo. “Financial literacy is important because that’s one of the main things that you need to operate and be successful as an adult.
