Savage Released on Bond Pending Deportation Hearing

Savage Released on Bond Pending Deportation Hearing

21 Savage's attorneys argued that he lost his legal status in 2006 "through no fault of his own" and applied for a visa in 2017 once he learned he was in the country illegally.

Earlier today, many more artists came out in support of 21 Savage after an official #Free21Savage petition dropped to free the rapper, which quickly garnered 450,000 signatures. TMZ reports that his lawyers, Charles H. Kuck, Dina LaPolt and Alex Spiro have released a statement on 21 Savage's behalf, thanking all of his fans who have advocated for his release since his incarceration on Super Bowl Sunday.

"In the last 24 hours", the statement reads, "we received notice that She'yaa was granted an expedited hearing".

In a statement to CNN that confirmed he'd been detained, ICE said, "Mr. Abraham-Joseph. has been placed into removal proceedings before the federal immigration courts". There were not any details as to why 21 Savage was still being held as it was believed he should have been able to receive a bond release the same day as his arrest.

Abraham-Joseph was nominated for two awards at the Grammys, including record of the year for "Rockstar" alongside Post Malone. ICE says Abraham-Joseph is unlawfully present in the USA and also a convicted felon.

The lawyers said that 21 Savage, whose real name is Sha Yea Bin Abraham-Joseph, would not forget the ordeal or the other people he was locked up with who "remain unjustly incarcerated accross the country".

Mr Kuck said the move was "based upon incorrect information about prior criminal charges" and that his client had never tried to hide his immigration status from authorities.

21 Savage was picked up by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents in Atlanta in a "targeted operation" on February 2.

The rapper is awaiting his U Visa, a special non-immigrant visa for victims of crimes.
