There is news of 21 Savage’s release from ICE custody.
On February 3, the rapper was first taken into custody, under the suspicion that he was living in the United States under false pretenses. ICE later made an announcement, proving they were correct. Savage admitted to being born in the United Kingdom and moving to the US at the age of 7-years-old.
However, Savage states that his H-4 visa expiring was not his fault and that he’s been attempting to apply for a new U-Visa.
His attorneys, Alex Spiro, Charles H. Kick, and Dina LaPolt have released a statement on his behalf.
For the past 9 long days, we, on behalf of She’yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, known to the world as 21 Savage, have been speaking with ICE to both clarify his actual legal standing, his eligibility for bond, and provide evidence of his extraordinary contributions to his community and society.
In the last 24 hours, in the wake of the Grammy Awards at which he was scheduled to attend and perform, we received notice that She’yaa was granted an expedited hearing.
The rapper’s arrest happened on Super Bowl Sunday. After nine days, he’s able to see a release on bond!
