21 Savage still remains in ICE custody. The father-of-three, whose real name is Sha Yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, was taken into custody for possible removal from the U.S. early Sunday (February 3) morning. Following his arrest, an ICE spokesperson told TMZ , 21, who was believed to be an Atlanta-native, is “a U.K. national who is unlawfully in the country and has been since 2006 when his visa expired.” However, 21’s attorney Charles H. Kuck recently disputed those claims telling TMZ his client applied for a “U-Visa back in 2017” and his application is still pending. He added that ICE has known about 21’s application, yet took no action until this weekend.

His manager gave us an update after he spoke to 21.

A lot of his friends have his back too! In an effort to free 21 and stop his possible deportation, the co-founder of Black Lives Matter, Patrisse Cullors, started an online petition , which has garnered over 100,000 signatures since its creation earlier this week. Fans and celebrities alike have signed the petition, with big names like Cardi B , Post Malone , and more sharing the link to it on their personal social media accounts.
