Rapper 21 Savage arrested by ICE, may be deported to the United Kingdom

ICE says that the rapper, whose real name is Shayaabin Abraham-Joseph, is a citizen of the UK, according to Cox. The agency stated that he entered the US legally but subsequently failed to leave under the conditions of his visa. ICE says when his visa expired in July 2006 Abraham-Joseph became present. 

“Along with being in violation of federal immigration law, Mr. Abraham-Joseph was convicted on felony drug charges in October 2014 at Fulton County, Georgia,” Cox stated. Abraham-Joseph in Atlanta over the weekend to the Super Bowl even performed during the Bud Light Super Bowl Music Fest just days before his arrest. He’s nominated for two awards at the Grammys, which will take place Feb. 10. 

Abraham-Joseph’s attorney Dina LaPolt said: “We’re working diligently to get Mr. Abraham-Joseph from detention while we work with police to address any misunderstanding. Mr. Abraham-Joseph is a role model to the young people within the country — notably in Atlanta, Georgia, and is actively working in the community leading apps to assist underprivileged youths in financial literacy.” 

The rapper has been known as an Atlanta native. He collaborated with Atlanta-based artists Gucci Mane and Zaytoven for the tune “East Atlanta Day,” where he rapped that Glenwood Road was the place where he “got his initial stripe” at age 13. 

The allegation which Abraham-Joseph is British of ICE came to the artist’s fans as a jolt, since he is associated with its music scene and Atlanta. He has stated the”21″ in his name is a reference to a road gang in Decatur, along with his tunes often refer to his past at East Atlanta’s Zone 6. In “Bank Account,” for example, he raps he is “straight up the 6 out.” 

His second album “I’m > I had been” was released in December 2018. He has also released a collaborative album with Offset and Metro Boomin named “Without Warning” at October 2017.
