21 Savage

21 Savage is receiving no special treatment in jail. His co-manager, Justin "Meezy" Williams, says the British rapper is on lockdown 23 hours a day at the immigration center in downtown Atlanta where he is on indefinite immigration hold.

The 26-year-old UK national was arrested by ICE agents on Super Bowl Sunday for overstaying his visa.

21 Savage and his mother, Heather Thomas, claimed he was born in Dominica.

Prior to his arrest, none of his fans were aware he was British.

Williams provided an update to the rapper's fans on Tuesday: "Just got off the phone wit [sic] Savage ... he is on lockdown for 23hrs of the day no tv or any communication besides our 10 [minute] phone calls ... everything I've told him that has been happening made him happy & makes this time fly by thank y'all for the support."

The manager also posted a link to a petition that has garnered over 157,000 signatures.

"My Brother needs your support Sign the petition to help #Free21Savage! free21savage.org," he wrote on Instagram.com.

The rapper's lawyer, Charles H. Kuck, insists his client is being "unnecessarily punished" by U.S. immigration authorities.

21 Savage, whose real name is Shéyaa (pronounced Shay Yaa) Bin Abraham-Joseph, faces deportation back to England, which his lawyer argues is a "civil law violation".

"The continued detention of Mr Abraham-Joseph serves no other purpose than to unnecessarily punish him and try to intimidate him into giving up his right to fight to remain in the United States," Kuck said in a statement per WENN.com.

Kuck added that authorities had been aware of 21 Savage's status since 2017, when he applied for a visa as a victim of crime.

Kuck also claimed that the musician was being held by officers because of "incorrect information about prior criminal charges". He is likely referring to 21 Savage's 2014 felony drug conviction - but the record was expunged last year. However, ICE does not have to honor an expungement.

"ICE has not charged Mr. Abraham-Joseph with any crime," Kuck explained. "As a minor, his family overstayed their work visas, and he, like almost two million other children, was left without legal status through no fault of his own.

"He rose above the difficult circumstances of his youth to achieve success and make contributions to our society that rival any of those by a natural born citizen. Mr Abraham-Joseph has U.S. citizen children that he supports and is eligible for relief from deportation."

Concluding his statement, Kuck said: "We and he will fight for his release, for his family, and his right to remain in our country. No one would expect less from him."

    Inmates do 23/1. This isn't new

  • Bossy704

    British rapper...we really had no clue. Sad.

  • VernadineTheQueen?

    Well he still have to follow the rules like everyone else.

  • Omandesert

    Why do we condone bad behavior? He was granted a visa by the USA and abused it. Why should he get preferential treatment? He knowingly and willingly stayed in this country after his visa expired. Lock his ass up until we export his ass over the pond. Screw a petition.

  • T Willis

    I mean he came here legally ... it seems more like a clerical error that’s being exaggerated. ?????

  • Dollface

    Deport his ass over the pond. Deport.

  • Marlika

    I ain’t studying this fool. He had as plenty of time to get his things in order. Cheerio 21 Savage!!!!

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    This !!!!! Chile I think about all the money this fool flex about .... you mean to tell me you couldn't handle something .... Moving on

  • shauna

    He came here when he was 12 so unless you think when his visa expired a year later at 13 he was going to kiss his mother goodbye, catch a cab to the airport and fly back to the UK alone, you're being a bit unreasonable to say the least.

  • RICHIE_RICH

    He has pretty skin .

  • Renee26

    Why didn't he handle is as an adult though??

  • HotInCleveland

    And he shouldn’t receive special treatment. However, he probably pays more in taxes than a lot of these lazy bums and corporations in this country.

  • Yup, I said it

    He should have self deported at 18 then he could have reapplied for a long term visa. Instead he was too busy gangbanging and dropping out of FREE school and terrorizing decalb county. bye shug.

    No his parents should have done right and applied for citizenship. This is their mess.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

I don't have a fawk to give about this fraud .... and will never take up for him ... https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/236ffd248f6d917306fb8afa3e1c0fbaafad1639eeb5cd577c3b63edf5867757.gif

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    Hopefully he'll be ok when all of this is over. I don't see him as being the jail type.

  • shauna

    Yeah, 18 year olds should do a lot of things......but they're 18 and have the sense of a gnat. And from what I understand, he started paperwork about 2 years ago to correct this situation.

  • shauna

    Apparently he's been in the process of having this corrected for a few years.

  • BingBangBoom

    Okay so we just copying and pasted these post right? We get a little info added and then the rest is from the past 6 post combined. We wasting valuable Internet space....

  • Yup, I said it

    He'd would be quick to let us know his ancestors were NOT slaves and refuse to sing negro spirituals and shiat. We had a few Africans up in the black gospel choir in college who would remind us of those facts every black history month.

  • Coy little wink

    And guess what...a wall is not going to affect the visa overstayers and therein lies the crux of the problem

  • Alextra Ballard

    what's dat above Savages top lip? I hope dat ain no mustache!!!

  • Yup, I said it

    Right that's why 18 year-olds get deported too. What age is the person ssupposed to be accountable, 35?

  • LYRICS

    I'm not sure why it's "poor 21 Savage", he could've married ANY one of his groupies or "ig baddies" and everything could've been legit. So we'll scream "Lock up Teriyaki 69", but want to save Savage b/c he wants to stay in the US undocumented? I'm confused.

  • Yardgirl

    I soooo wanted to say this!! I just did not have the energy to deal with the Coo-coo for coco puff trolls who may or may not jump all over this truth. I agree with you 100% sis!!

  • Coy little wink

    If you marry you still have to apply for a green card its not automatic...

    Plus I think he wanted to go about this the right way not a sham marriage

  • Yup, I said it

    He ain't trying to get married he was just leaving a trail of baby mommas behind him.

  • Carrington

    Getting married doesn't guarantee you citizen status.

  • LYRICS

    Visitor's Visas expire. IDK the ins and outs of his specifics, but not b/c u get into a country legally, doesn't mean u can stay illegally when you're supposed to leave the country.....

  • Carrington

    He's a celebrity... it's likely in his best interest to keep him out of general population?

  • BeUtFullSoul

    Blah blaaah BLAAAAAAAHHHH! ?????...

    Aun-TEA @sandrarose, Can We PLEASE get a

    He can go to UK willingly until this is resolved. What does he need signatures for? Just go and get yo self together sir....

    New post please!

  • YellowSauce

    I like 21 but this is just DUMB ... you know we have a president that WILL send you home .... HANDLE YOUR BUSINESS ...why don't people in the music industry know what BUSINESS is???!!! they know what jewelry is but not business .. we wouldn't even know homie wasn't born in ATL if he had his paperwork taken care of .... and there is no excuse he had 13 years to get his affairs in order and will still have to do it anyways

  • BingBangBoom

    He better consult with Joe Giudice. He too claims the same issues happened to him as a kid. Illegal Felons looking for support based of mediocre fame.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Well, I guess if you're going to get deported, the UK isn't a bad place to get deported to.

  • NuBeauty

    Why do we start petition that really have nothing to do with us. Lets be real....he failed to handle his paperwork and paying the consequences. If we need to sign any petition...it need to be a petition to go against these Utility Companies and their made up a55 fees!!!!! "Administrative Fee"....I like to send one back as a "Go 2 H3ll" Fee.

  • leapyearpisces

    If he was gonna mark up his nice smooth skin, with those useless tattoos on his face, he could have gave that skin to me. I would have put it to GOODT use.

  • Yoni7

    Celebrity being used loosely.

  • Carrington

    He came here at 12 and was illegal by the time he turned 13. He grew up in Georgia. There are many dynamics that come into play in this situation. Applying for status isn't automatic. Sometimes, the answer is "no". So, if he took that risk, he also risked deportation. He also risked his mother being deported because, if HE was here illegally, then so was she.
    What if, in trying to get his stuff straight, he ended up getting his mother deported or, worse, both? What about his siblings that were born here? If mom gets deported either they're separated from her and forced to live with relatives or, they're forced to leave the only place they know to be with their mom.
    I kinda get why he didn't do it.

  • Renee26

    Photo editing can give you that same skin it gave him

  • Renee26

    Shole is

  • Topic Influencer

    Some of yall are being weird af. At 13-14 he was supposed to figure out his status? At 18 he was supposed to do it? There are grown people who cant even navigate the process but an 18 yo kid was supposed to do it? He has been working on it for years now I read earlier, and we think even that isnt enough? Its not like you apply and tomorrow it gets granted. Or even next week or even next year. Man at my home church is from Nigeria been working on his status for FIVE years now. And he is a doctor. Like try to understand the process people. All the money in the world cannot fix certain stuff. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/5cf4f3e9185995ab3d1d79ee854c5a72ea9e19a58beb38127241e0c647e9a260.gif

    Get out my mind Carrington. And his mama has TEN kids aside from him. Like....folks just spouting off. 21 Savage fan I am NOT but lets be real here. My goodness.

  • HotInCleveland

    TEN?!?!?! (In my souljah boy voice)

  • Carrington

    That's all I'm saying... I understand completely. And this ain't from just the black perspective, I understand why the dreamers/DACA children were afraid to come forward too. Their ENTIRE damned families were at risk.

  • Renee26

    Which is a problem. I understand his green card was denied but to have good lawyers and a lot of money and still not be able to correct it is a problem. It was more than likely at the bottom of his list of things to do.

  • Carrington

    I eased on past that part. LMAO!

  • Topic Influencer

    ELEVEN

  • Topic Influencer

    This. And its like he should have done it when he got signed. Why he aint handle his biz. All that money and he aint do right. Ummm...21 Savage JUST got signed in Jan 2017. So two years. Which is when I read he started the process. TWO YEARS AGO. Even with that tidbit its still an issue. Folks are just never happy here. About anything.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Go for it!!!

  • Topic Influencer

    He is a felon. His route to citizenship is not gonna be easy or normal. Or fixed by money.

  • INDUSTRY GURU

    His parents have should done it I agree. I suspect there was a specific reason why they did not, maybe it had something to do with trying to hide somethinng from immigration.

    However once became 16, or 18 or 21 he knew the law, and what his responsibilites were.

  • Renee26

    Money rules the world

  • Carrington

    And, money doesn't always buy status for certain people. For certain folk, you're just an illegal with money - now, get in that line to get on the go back bus.

  • NuBeauty

    You know what...this whole situation in honesty sounds a bit odd.

  • Yup, I said it

    Most americans dont even have passports. So folks stabbing for his release have no idea what they are talking about. If you have ever travelled abroad then you know, you have to have your paperwork square. This man has traveled internationally since he was at least 12. His parents gamed the system and taught him how to game it too.

  • Topic Influencer

    Carrington. SIR. You all up in my brain today. I just said this below. "money doesn't always buy status for certain people" for me that equals not to him. Bc He is not white. He is a black ass convicted felon. Who basically is just starting out. Just got a deal in 2017. He aint swimming in no money like that. Im not sure why folks think he is loaded. Sure. He has more some. But is he a Puffy? A Jay? A Dr. Dre? He is only on solo album dos.

  • Topic Influencer

    I keep reading he has never left the US. Only to go to Canada. He has never toured outside of the states. Not sure how true that is.

  • Reina1718

    This is so true. My coworker's daughter-in-law has been living here for a long time and finally decided to get legal. She had to go back to Honduras to wait for her approval to reenter the country legally and she got denied. Now her three minor kids are stuck in the US without her. Messed up situation...

  • Youcan’tbanmesucka

    Good riddance wanker! Where is the petition to continue the deportation?

  • Chasity Vanhalen

    He's a british national not citizen. It means his parents at the time of his birth were not a citizens therefore he's a citizen of Dominica as is his mother. Upon the age of 18 he becomes eligible to apply for a British passport (citizenship) until then he's not a citizen so he may not be deported to the UK but may actually end up in Dominica along with his entire family. The citizenship by birth is only in a few countries like the US although persons born in the American Samoas are nationals and not citizens of the US. Bermuda, Gibraltar and Montserrat citizens are British nationals but not citizens of the UK until they apply after age 18.

  • Chasity Vanhalen

  • facingrealit1

    He has little to no chance of not being deported as one of the stipulations of becoming a citizen is not to be involved in criminal activities. He won't pass that test. You'd think they would learn by now that they don't have to like Trump but all that posturing when their hands are dirty will not bode well for them because Karma.....And Like it or not, believe it or not Trumps election was preordained, as We The People would have never learned of all of the criminal activity in our government had Hillary been elected.

  • shauna

    Well not really because when Obama was in office, he made concessions for Dreamers, those brought here when they were kids so if he's been handling this for the past two years, that tells me once ASSLIPS got elected and started talking about deporting everyone he tried to make things right.

  • gellie

    He's missing out on major international bags by not being able to travel abroad. And even stateside, everyone's going to need enhanced identification by 2020 in order to travel by air domestically. That's why he finally tried to fix his situation. But he had to do it on the low because he didn't want people to know he wasn't from America. Everyone assumed he's from ATL and he did nothing to correct the record. Unfortunately, he picked the wrong time and the wrong administration to try and get his status fixed.

  • dontgetblocked

    When he became an entertainer, he should have gotten this shlit straight. He's not a US citizen. He's not a UK citizen. He is a citizen of Dominica. He'll soon be calling the West Indies home again. One less criminal for us to worry about.

  • gellie

    Ironically, had 21 kept his nose clean and not caught that charge and conviction in 2014, he would've been DACA eligible, and in a much better position to fix his status than he is now. When your papers ain't right, it is crucial that you stay out of the clutches of the Criminal Justice System. People all over the country are getting rounded up over possession charges and DUI charges from 10-20 years ago. That's how ICE is finding most of these people to deport.

  • PrettyNetty28

    Like what’s the big deal if he gets deported back to U.K (London)...it’s not destitute.

    This detainment and deportation may be saving his life. He's got into quite a bit of trouble since being here.

  • gellie

    And Joe Guidice isn't even undocumented. He's a permanent resident with a green card. His primary mistake was not following through and becoming a naturalized citizen. He'd still be a felon, but he'd be constitutionally protected from being deported.

  • Topic Influencer

    I agree. Felony charge gonna make it hard. Only thing might make a difference is fact that it was expunged. However...whose fault is THAT, that it wasn't caught? Not his. It's a 2 way street. Everyone gonna have to take some blame. Him. His fam. The system.

If he had focused on his talent and stayed out of legal trouble he would be able to get an O-1 Visa like Justin Beiber and dem.

  • gellie

    The system doesn't and won't take blame for anything. Here's the thing - the rules have always been on the books that if you want to become a citizen, obtain or maintain legal status you can't have felonies. You can't hardly have run-ins with the law. ICE is under no legal obligation to recognize expungements. What has fluctuated is how aggressively those rules are enforced. We now have an administration that is aggressively enforcing that segment of Immigration Law, to the degree that they are even deporting people with legal status, revoking green cards for minor convictions from years ago. And it's perfectly legal to do so. This is what 21 is up against.

    Too busy buying jewelry and selling drugs. I started having my son learn to take care if his business when he turned a certain age.

That boy had just got money 2 years ago when he signed his deal which gave him the finances to hire good attorneys to help him.

    https://news.yahoo.com/untangling-21-savage-apos-ice-001829503.html

    On Feb. 3, it was reported that 21 Savage had been arrested in Atlanta,
    along with his cousin and fellow rapper Young Nudy, and taken into U.S.
    Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) custody. ICE alleges that the
    father of three, who grew up in Atlanta, is a national of the United

    But he had to have stated on his app that he was from Dominica. I don't know why he lied and said he was from Dominica.
    Did they deport the mom?

  • Truth Or Die

    Your right BUT what about his parents? And if not his parents what about himself when he became an adult at 21?

    Well, I hope he gets to stay, just like the ancestors who came as squatters, anilated, decimated, enslaved and conquered!

    Welp, u just made an "ass" of yourself b/c 1st of all, u never assume and 2nd I do know! My point, no matter what we don't need to "cape" for ANY celebrity b/c THEY ARE NORMAL!! This was something he could've taken care of a long time ago, so while I sympathize I can't empathize.....

  • C Mack

    But you said ppl were screaming to lock Tekashi up and saying Free 21. In that case people would only be caping for 21. Tekashi’s locked up for violent crimes, racketeering, etc. 21’s not comparable.

  • Chuck

    Dude is stupid for being here illegally, causing friction: committing crimes, threatening the president, and creating this violence music. #KeepHimLockedUp

    EVERYONE has a different journey. When I was 21 I was focused on my life. Ummm NOT. Was focused on my party LIFE. Das about it. I won't ever hold anyone to a standard I myself did not even meet. Unfair expectations

  • Carrington

    The reality, as with most young, black men growing up in urban America - is that his path is no different than most. You tend to go with what you know. So, coming here as a 12 year old illegal and, growing up in the streets of Atlanta, but being from the UK didn't give him anymore advantages than someone who moved to Atlanta from the Bronx. He was socialized in that environment. Let's not lose sight of the big picture.

  • Carrington

    I had this very same conversation yesterday who had the same stupid a$$ed sentiment about how he, "should've BEEN took care of this!" mind you, this is someone who JUST got put into housing, had been homeless for the better part of last year, sleeping in public bathrooms because they lost everything they had and very few of the people who were friends when he had it all, came to his aide once he didn't any longer. I was like, of ALL people, YOU should understand that there are extenuating circumstances to someone's story. Of all people, YOU should know that it's not always as simple as, "just get a job!" or, "he should've saved his money!". How dare YOU, of all people say, "I have no sympathy for him!" when you were running around sleeping in the bathroom of an apartment building where your former friend lived upstairs and wouldn't let you come up. People are f*cked up, straight up!

  • SayWhatNow?

    First of all he came here as a child so if he didn't leave when it expired that's on his parents! How many of you would leave a life you've known since you were a child?! (rhetorical question so don't waste your key strokes) And I read that he did apply for his visa and it's still pending. It's not like he was hiding, he is a public figure and I hope he get's to stay! I love me some 21 savage!

  • Topic Influencer

    Not even a huge fan like that (my guy and our girls like him tho) but this is CRAZYTOWN. And yes he did apply and its still pending. NONE of that information is being even included in anything here.

  • Topic Influencer

    Its just mind boggling the amount of the get your shit together comments here.

  • Chuck

    Still doesn't give him an excuse to remain here illegally, committing crimes and threatening the president.

  • Chuck

    True.. but, life is all about choices and 21 is old enough to know that.

  • SayWhatNow?

    I like his music, my kids use to look at me like I was crazy but everybody is use to it now. I play bank account every morning.

  • SayWhatNow?

    Maybe applications should be processed in a timely manner because he applied! Aint nobody going to live over there when their whole life is here. hell he may not know anyone there.

  • Truth Or Die

    The parents?

  • Topic Influencer

    I already been said there is enough blame to go around. The system bc he committed whole ass crimes here as an illegal, his parents bc they knew damn well they had all their KIDS here illegally. And him. He is 26. I admit he could have done this. But I just dont think its REASONABLE for anyone to expect a 18-24 (how old he was before he got his paperwork going or his money ie record deal to DO IT WITH) to do this big huge EXPENSIVE process. Yes it COULD have happened. But do we think it was going to?

  • IssaOpinion

    The only artist who tells kids to save money instead of wasting it on necklaces and clothing.

  • IssaOpinion

    Wait stop ,he actually refuses to spend money on jewelry.He says people should save instead of doing so.Your clearly not a fan. Free 21?

  • IssaOpinion

    Your one of few who knows this.Theses comments making this guy seem like he trafficked kids.

  • IssaOpinion

    He has kids here.

  • IssaOpinion

    The guy is a father to 3
    American kids.Whats wrong with you idiot.If it was a mother everyone would be protesting.Free 21 period

  • ???TheRider???

    If you’re a victim of a crime you can stay permanently. The fact that he feels he has a right to stay here is utter bs! He was in a drug deal gone bad and got shot! Fool ain’t no victim!

  • datATLboi

    I don't see why people are making deportation and illegal immigration a "Trump Admin" thing. It's BEEN a law....21 Savage has admitted to killing and robbing...maybe those people would have their lives if he wasn't here. IJS

  • BeUtFullSoul

    I understand ?, but I wanted to pay homage to OUR TRAYVON, and let that KILLER ?know WE still have NOT FORGOTTEN ??

  • Coffee1st

    To me, folks can't balance.
    YES, he should have taken care of unfinished business....but that doesn't mean i can't sympathize. People on here taking a hard line with harsh sentiment. Like he owe them some money or sum.
    But ONE thing i do KNOW. The Ones talking the loudest are the One's who got mad skeletons & dysfunction in their lives.
    I.
    PROMISE.
    YOU.

  • facingrealit1

    I'm just stating the FACTS! Nothing more or less! If you don't like the laws on the books VOTE for better politicians as they are very quickly attempting to silence the black voice through illegal immigration. Another FACT by 2020 hispanics will overtake the number of black voters! FACTS! And you have all these elitist blacks (pastors too) helping them.

  • facingrealit1

    Trump is in the White House - pay attention!

  • what?why

    He broke the law for years and knew he was putting his children at risk. What a self centered, ego maniac. All that he had to do was apply for a green card to start the long process, as many others have over the years.

  • what?why

    There are many waiting, that have followed the law, before him. He just has to return to London and apply for a green card, then start the immigration process (just like everyone else).
