"U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) arrested unlawfully present United Kingdom national Sha Yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph AKA "21 Savage" during a targeted operation with federal and local law enforcement partners early Sunday in metro Atlanta", Brian Cox, a spokesman for ICE, said in a statement. In late January, 21 Savage appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and performed an alternate version of "A Lot," the opening track on his 2018 album I Am I Was.

Demi Lovato deactivates her Twitter account after getting backlash for mocking 21 Savage following his ICE arrest.

In a statement released by his RocNation label, Jay-Z called 21 Savage's arrest and detention a travesty and demanded his immediate release.

The court also heard that police had arrested McArthur in 2016 for assault after he attempted to strangle a man he had known. The statement of facts presented to the courts does not appear to include any details provided by McArthur himself.


Johnson said 21 is a prime candidate for bond based on him being a valuable member of the community and the sole breadwinner for his siblings and children.

ICE has said the artist was convicted of felony drug charges in October 2014, but Spiro said it was a marijuana conviction that was vacated. It added that future actions will be determined by the outcome of the case before a federal immigration judge.

The rapper's legal team previously clarified that their client was born in London and moved to America when he was 7 years old.

21 Savage is going on the record for the first time, through his reps, and revealing the timeline of his worldwide travels, claiming he has actually been in the United States since the age of 7.

H-4 visas are granted to the children of immigrants who hold H-1B visas, which are given to foreign workers in specialty occupations. "Unfortunately, in 2006 Mr. Abraham-Joseph lost his legal status through no fault of his own". The rapper since applied for a U visa. However, a source at ATF claims ICE was there, but is not listed on the report. It has reportedly been pending for four years.

Abraham-Joseph has three children who are American citizens, which his lawyers say make him eligible for deportation relief.
