Z & Roc Nation Come To 21 Savage's Defense Amid ICE-Cold Legal War

Z & Roc Nation Come To 21 Savage's Defense Amid ICE-Cold Legal War

ICE spokesman Brian Cox told the Journal-Constitution 21 Savage is really a United Kingdom national who entered the US with a visa in 2005 and has been in the country illegally since 2006. As it turns out, Savage has been living in the country illegally and could be deported.

21 Savage built his career on being an Atlanta native, whose lyrics reflected life in the city and his work had similarities with other Atlanta artists.

21 Savage has indeed been getting a lot of support from industry colleagues since his arrest and the latest is from music mogul and icon, Jay Z, who has hired a lawyer to handle his proposed deportation. (Atlanta was hosting the Super Bowl on the day of his arrest.) Upon stopping, 21 Savage allegedly dumped a bottle containing an unknown substance, which caused police to immediately handcuff him. He was in a separate vehicle driving alongside 21 Savage.

The rapper, whose real name is Sha'yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, reportedly had a children's visa when he was younger, which expired in 2005. Although it expired, he continued to live in the U.S. "His U Visa petition has been pending for 4 years".

Jay-Z's Roc Nation also hired attorney Alex Spiro to help 21 Savage.

According to three police reports, 21 was in a red Dodge Challenger and drove across the sidewalk in an attempt to get onto another street.

The rapper has applied for a U-visa, which is pending with the US Citizenship and Immigration Services, Kuck said.

The application was filed in 2017, four years after he was reportedly shot six times during an incident in which his friend died.

They are calling for his release from custody - citing his strong familial links within America as proof that he is not a flight risk or danger to the community - in order to put put together the defence for his case, which is due to be heard in federal immigration courts. At the time, 21 Savage was driving alongside Young Nudy's auto and a third vehicle. It's unclear for how long Savage will be detained, and it's hard to tell the likelihood of his deportation. Jay Z has called for those fighting immigration cases to be freed while their case is fought.
