21 Savage Arrested For Illegal Entrance Into The U.S

21 Savage is actually from the fucking U.K.

You heard me correctly. Although he reps Atlanta, it’s not true. While everyone was patiently waiting for the start of the  Superbowl, numerous reports indicated that Atlanta native, 21 Savage was arrested. The reasoning? He allegedly entered the U.S. legally in 2005, but his visa has now expired!

According to his attorney:

“We are working diligently to get Mr. Abraham-Joseph out of detention while we work with authorities to clear up any misunderstanding. Mr. Abraham-Joseph is a role model to the young people in the country — especially in Atlanta, Georgia and is actively working in the community leading programs to help underprivileged youths in financial literacy.”

An ICE spokesperson says 21 Sav –real name Sha Yaa Bin Abraham -Joseph is a U.K. national who has been unlawfully in the country since 2006 when his visa expired.  21 Savage is currently in ICE custody in Georgia.

However, it is unclear what UK territory is actually from,  but some have claimed that he is originally from the Caribbean island of Dominica.

But, what do you all think about this mess? And more importantly, who is responsible for releasing the information? Please comment below and for more gossip, keep it locked to!
