On Feb. 3, fans of the rapper 21 Savage faced disappointment as he found himself in an inescapable predicament. The rapper was arrested by the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) for his overstay in the United States.
For those who don’t know, Shéyaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, better known as 21 Savage, is a rapper, songwriter ,and record producer who claimed he hailed from Atlanta, Georgia. He was also nominated for a Grammy for “Rock Star,” a song by Post Malone that featured him.
According to ICE, Abraham-Joseph legally entered the United States in July 2005 as a minor and a citizen from the United Kingdom. However, he did not leave the country and disobeyed his non-immigrant visa. ICE said that Abraham-Joseph’s visa expired on July 2006.
Now in ICE custody in Georgia, Abraham-Joseph has been placed in removal proceedings before the federal immigration courts. ICE is currently waiting for the outcome of the case. Meanwhile, an attorney for the rapper is working hard to clear any misunderstandings.
The recent arrest remains to be a sting on fans as they wait for more news regarding the rapper.
