Atlanta rapper 21 Savage has some serious problems right now. New reports claim the hip-hop superstar is in United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement custody in Georgia.
According to reports, ICE took down the hip-hop heavyweight for allegedly overstaying a visa.
“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. Mr. Abraham-Joseph was taken into ICE custody as he is unlawfully present in the U.S. and also a convicted felon. “Mr. Abraham-Joseph initially entered the U.S. legally in July 2005, but subsequently failed to depart under the terms of his nonimmigrant visa and he became unlawfully present in the U.S. when his visa expired in July 2006.” (The Indy Channel)
Savage’s past conviction in a drug case has also made the situation messier.
“In addition to being in violation of federal immigration law, Mr. Abraham-Joseph was convicted on felony drug charges in October 2014 in Fulton County, Georgia. “Mr. Abraham-Joseph is presently in ICE custody in Georgia and has been placed into removal proceedings before the federal immigration courts. ICE will now await the outcome of his case before a federal immigration judge to determine future actions.
This week, Sav released his cinematic J. Cole-featured “A Lot” music video.
Prior to the ICE incident, Sav has kept super busy with a new Forever 21 and Honda motorsports apparel collection collaboration.
