21 Savage

Rapper 21 Savage was arrested in Atlanta early Sunday morning by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents for being in the United States unlawfully, according to The Blast.

21 Savage, whose real name is Shayaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, was picked up in Atlanta for overstaying his Visa, according to a statement by ICE spokesman. The statement, obtained by WSB-TV, referred to Savage as an "unlawfully present United Kingdom national."

Savage was picked up "during a targeted operation with federal and local law enforcement partners" in the Atlanta area. The feds have conducted mass arrests in Atlanta since Thursday, while over 1 million guests are in the City for Super Bowl weekend festivities.

A source close to 21 Savage tells The Blast his lawyers are working to clear up the immigration issue, calling it a “misunderstanding."

The Blast's sources say his legal team has been trying to clear this up for months and the issue has to do with the validity of his Visa paperwork when he entered the country.

WSB-TV reports an email from an ICE spokesman that further explained, "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 with his family in July 2005, but subsequently failed to depart under the terms of his nonimmigrant visa."

Apparently the rapper was denied a green card which would have allowed him to remain in the country permanently.

The rapper and his siblings were raised in England by his mother, Heather, a Dominican national. The family moved to DeKalb County, Georgia in 2005.

21 Savage is best known for his 2015 underground mixtape, The Slaughter Tape, and his debut album Savage Mode (2016). He is also widely known for once dating West Coast socialite Amber Rose.

Savage is the latest rapper to be arrested in Atlanta during the big Super Bowl weekend.

Reality TV stars Shad Moss, aka Bow Wow, and his girlfriend, Kiyomi Leslie were arrested early Saturday on misdemeanor assault charges. They were both released Saturday.

  • rockstar2142

    Yep! Had us all fooled.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    He hid his birthplace well. He knew he was here illegally. Obama protected immigrants like him. But there's a new Sheriff in town.

  • LithiumHaitianFlower

    If he’s been here since 13-14 yrs old. It’s very well possible he acquired the Atlanta accent. My younger sibblings that came with me here no longer have the heavy creole/French accent. Where as I still have my heavy accent....despite my educations?????.

  • Gloria

    ??? this gif

  • Fire & Ice

    You're loose today ???. How was he not keeping up with something so important?!?!. I don't care how much money he has, certain things should never slide pass you.

  • rockstar2142

    Yeah good point he could have lost it since it’s been a while.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I'm so glad my mom followed the law and didn't bring us here illegally. She got our green cards when we were kids so we could enjoy all the benefits of being citizens.

  • rockstar2142

    I’m gonna need then to be banning all pedos then instead of just singling out kelly

  • Bonita

    I wonder if anyone in those circles knew. If so, that was kept real hush-hush.

  • LithiumHaitianFlower

    It’s very possible. My little brothers sounds very different from me. Almost like they were born here lol

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    How you rapping an artist and ain't got yo shyt together chile .....This whole time thought he was from Atlanta and just got here in 2005 chile .... wow !!!!! Ninja from a whole nother country ......

  • Gloria

    Yikes. I like 21 savage. Don't judge me....

    Seems like he's had a hard life... Mother died from a gang shootout in England and so his family moved to the U.S. He was just a kid at the time, and was stuck poor in the ATL until his career took off.... Cut him some slack. NO ONE SHOULD BE "ILLEGAL" on stolen land.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Amen .... she did it right .... cause with all this going on now ..... this is not the time to be out here whoa look at me and don't even have your legal stuff together .... https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/51c6b3f7a6512ebaa1918af76267cbf3565dd650397e2957034187e652b8b8a3.gif

  • Chipswife

    This is true Sandra

  • LithiumHaitianFlower

    Under Obama, yes. But with the new president order, they deny all immigrants who’s been arrested and convicted green cards(felonies and even some misdemeanors, I know). If he gets re-elected more young people who came through immigrant parents will be deported. A lot of the youngins have arrest records and have had plea deals?????

  • Mazey1

    Nah, Slick Rick was broke. My guess is 21 Savage, aka Shayaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, will be able to stay but it's going to cost him millions.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™
  • jazmine

    He moved here at 12. Im sure most gangstas develop after that age...

  • Russiancreme

    I like his music too. I had no idea abt his mom. makes me appreciate his song letter 2 my momma even more.

  • Michelle Peele

    I was thinking the same thing. They can start with the registered sex offenders. Just get a bus and or a couple of vans and drop them off at the state line.

  • BingBangBoom

    Someone that is charged and convicted would be greatly appreciated. Sounds like Philly wants all blacks gone and discontinued. Not a place I care to visit

  • BingBangBoom

    Lol

  • Russiancreme

    Yup, if only he reached his current level of success a few years earlier it's very likely he could've worked something out. Maybe his lawyers can drag this out past 2020, and he can get a reprieve.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    "NO ONE SHOULD BE "ILLEGAL" on stolen land" U have point.

  • WhoKnew

    Yeah me and my sister who live in two different cities were going to meet up year before last in Philly to catch a Lauryn Hill show. She did not want to go by herself because she knows I do not waste my money on concert tickets but I won't turn down a free one. Anyway, I was telling her I heard Lauryn was usually around 2 hours late for her shows and Philly just happened to be in the news for a crime spree. My sister said nah, I think I'll pass. She said I can wait for Lauryn to be late but I want to make it back home and if they carrying on like the news said, I'm going to stay my black ass at home. I said good choice.

  • jujumanji

    You gotta start somewhere why not the top? It's called a trickle down effect. Maybe y'all heard of it? He clearly has...? hence the ban. Read the article not just my comment.

  • WhoKnew

    Dump's wife????

  • Blue

    Hahahahahahaha

  • Nina Ross

    Well his lawyers should have advised him to get married & secure the card

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    A good point ...... but when dem boys is out there looking to arrest ..... why even be in da spot light to get caught ..... he coulda paid for something all that shyt he be flexing in jewles etc .... he had money .... double edge sword there.... on one had we got this cat ,.... rapper wit da funds ... or got a little something to a card or something js ... a lot of these other people don't have that privilege...

    I think somebody set him up by leaking this info to the feds ,People can be so nerdlessly cruel .In this life it’s better to always keep your cards close to your chest. Better deal with your issues privately

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    Speak the truth and shame the devil. I bet it was someone in his inner circle. Smh. Somebody who was jealous of his success and will do ANYTHING to keep him down. In this last decade I've seen folks who claim to be living their best life, do as much underhanded dirt to others as the miserable folks do. You're right about keeping you cards close to your chest.

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    I bet a lot of them were okay with his actions until now. Fake shìt.

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    They can ship all those sickos to D.C. Plenty of women there will take up for those men while trying to shame their victims. That's the real hush hush.

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    So should he fear his life since they fled after his mom was k?lled in a sh00tout?

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    I thought he was from the atl? Well ok

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    His mom still living I thought. He was raised in Decatur. Google her pics

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    No one is who they seem now a days. Amber probably turned him in.

  • NeverSurprised

    I won't spend one second sympathizing with someone who is here illegally. My ancestors worked for FREE to build this nation and because of their suffering and sacrifice, I live a blessed life today. So when all hardworking BLACK AMERICANS are prosperous and able to leave a legacy to their children, then and only then will I worry about people whose ancestors contributed nothing.

    In most western european countries, the day after your visa expires they are knocking on your door to make sure you are getting the hell outta Dodge. Why are we the only people who are so happy to let outsiders take advantage of our resources when we have native born Americans who have not yet achieved their dreams?

    If you're here legally -- I welcome you. If not -- kick rocks.

  • Thingamajig

    Lol... so, does that mean he’s going to be deported to the United Kingdom? It’s actually very pleasant in the UK I’m sure he won’t have problem with going back home.

  • LithiumHaitianFlower

    He’s from Domicana, a Caribbean Island ruled by England?????. He came as early as 12-13 yrs old. Perhaps, immigration regulations were never explained to him.

  • ALLMINE?

    They would've kicked my american ass out the UK in 5 days..

  • ALLMINE?

    This ain't the only land that was stolen. Please stop
    .

  • ALLMINE?

    BAM BOOM

  • LithiumHaitianFlower

    Domicana, a Caribbean Island under England territory. Dang. He’ll probably be deported within a week. Them suckas don’t play

  • AmericanDream

    So are 10 million other people. I think this mess proves how black people are always misinformed about everything . He’s had some success and he’s kinda famous . There are plenty of immigration programs tailored for people like him . He or anyone in his camp probably never even bothered to get the ball rolling in that direction.

  • AmericanDream

    Yawn

  • ALLMINE?

    Is he an american black? Was his family sold to the English and shipped to the Carolinas?

  • McKay

    His facial reactions remind me of Chuck E Cheese and his bands mate. So darn robotic.

  • ALLMINE?

    He didn't loose shit..yall so gullible

  • ALLMINE?

    ????? tell em Sandra..

  • Pamela

    Slick Rick is now a US citizen. He ain't going nowhere.

  • Pamela

    Lauren Hill just performed in Johannesburg this Saturday. Folks were worried she wouldn't show up or be 12 hours late. She showed up on time and gave a spectacular show.

  • hi-liter

    Damn, this gotta be the of the biggest plot twists in rap history. I thought surely this is a mistake, but apparently not.

  • Pamela

    Left alone in the Reservations?

  • Whiplash(lacejagger)

    You do know the first stop for many of our African ancestors was the carribean, right? He’s from Dominica.. which was under French and then British control.. same boat different rock!

  • MJ

    He's rich and going to a Westernized country. He'll be fine.

  • Mielle Downey

    Even Mexico sends you back.

  • lovelygamour

    thank you. thats why i have no sympathy for first world overstayers. they can stay here for years. if i went to Australia they would drive me to the airport on the day im suppose to leave. nope. they got to go home. now maybe the uk wasnt safe for them back then but he had time to make an album he couldve gotten his paper work together .

  • Mielle Downey

    Let him go kick rocks thier. What has the Caribbean people done for me lately?

  • lovelygamour

    plus he can continue his rap career and he may do better over there.

  • lovelygamour

    new zealand kicked some american white people out for noise, littering, and driving an rv on a small road. so if we can get put out that fast then he can go back to the uk. he should apply for dual citizen with the dominic republic.

  • lovelygamour

    someone had to have turned him in that was close. cause who would think to check his papers. he looks different but not enough to question him. could be his record label turned him in.

  • Mielle Downey

    The rapper back in the 90s just got back into the US a few years ago. SLICK Rick was from the UK to and got deported.

  • NeverSurprised

    I'm well aware of both my country's history and my FAMILY'S history. Many southern slaves were brought here directly from Africa when Maeghan Markel's slave-trading in-laws were still ruling the 13 colonies. My family's southern roots show no pit stops in the Carribbean (at least not from what we have been able to unearth in our research over the years).

    So my concern is for those blacks who built THIS country, where I comfortably reside and pay taxes. I see no reason to lay out the welcome mat for an illegal who also happens to be a CONVICTED FELON. He's a British National, so let him take his criminal behind back to the UK.

    Some of these people do nothing but criticize America -- calling us racist this/homophobic that. --. yet they all flock here to make their fortunes. Let him see if he can get rich in the UK.

  • Coy little wink

    His mom was killed when? I saw pics of them somewhere

  • Whiplash(lacejagger)

    Aren’t you the one who was defending lying ass Jussie Smollet? foh

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    Now Auntie .... I just can’t with this gif. this is the best I ever saw I president . These rappers better keep their traps shut and get their papers right !

  • lovelygamour

    he didnt try. he couldve claim fear for life if returned to the uk. he shouldve cleared this up as soon as he made a little money. and obviously he made someone mad cause i know youtubers who have overstayed entertainment visas for over a decade.

  • Whiplash(lacejagger)

    Well he’s done a lot in the urban Atlanta community! Positive things! You seem mad? Shalom. I’m not understanding how you’re trying to seem pro black, but hating your own ppl at the same time.

  • Vonn
  • NeverSurprised

    I remember years ago, either Austrailia or New Zealand (cant remember which) had a strict (but quiet) policy of not issuing Visa's to American blacks; they thought letting blacks in would diminish their country.. All over europe, countries set rules as to who enter and stay in their countries. Hell, even MEXICO has a LONG list of requirements about who can enter, and you have to be able to show you will have adequate income and not be a burden on the country. MEXICO!

    But we want to open our doors to every Tom, Dick and Habib. Sorry, but I say worry about the quality of life for AMERICANS before we start letting the entire globe in.

  • Mielle Downey

    No I'm not .I was the one who was worried about his traumatized sandwich. You can kick rocks to. Who are you discus ice?

  • Mielle Downey

    Stop trying to call me out my name. Seems like you have more in common with Jussie and your false allegations.

  • Li-Wright

    The mom was killed in a drug shootout? What is his crime? Anywho, ICE doing it's job.

  • Li-Wright

    This is a big country. ICE has just so many agents. AU is smaller than America, you can easily get lost in America, it's a big-ass country. Plus, we've had a number of shutdowns which cause case backlog.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    That's probably a mistake. I think it was his brother who got killed,not his mother. One website says:
    "21's prominent face tattoo is actually a tribute to his little brother Tay Man, who was killed when he was younger. Tay Man initially got the face tatt to represent the crew they were in. However after he died, 21 Savage got the same ink as a mark of respect."

  • JENNYJONES1

    THEY SHOULD HAVE ADVISED HIM TO ACT LIKE HE HAD SOME DAMN SENSE. I WOULD'VE NEVER, EVER THOUGHT THIS CLOWN WASN'T FROM ZONE 4,5 OR 6 OF ATLANTA, THE SWATS. SOMEWHERE HERE THE WAY HE HAS MOVED. PULLING GUNS AT PICNICS, FIGHTING, ARREST AND ERRYTHANG IN BETWEEN AND THAT'S SINCE HE BECAME FAMOUS!!! WHAT A TOTAL UNGRATEFUL CLOWN. LOVE HIS NEW SONG 'A LOT' WITH J.COLE THOUGH.......JENNY JONES!!!

  • NeverSurprised

    Mad about what?

    I am pro-AMERICA, with an emphasis on improving the quality of life for BLACK AMERICANS. I support blacks who want to work hard, obey the law, and live a good life. This CONVICTED FELON is by no stretch of the imagination "my people". He is a British National here ILLEGALLY. How does that make him "my people?"

    As for doing so much good in "the community," James Craig, head of the Detroit Police Dept. said that a movement that Savage started called "Guns Down, Paintballs Up", has been "misguided." It and has been linked to several cases of property crime and homicide.
    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/21_Savage

    In Atlanta, a 3-year-old's murder was investigated as being possibly linked to the "paintball wars" that Savage and others were promoting.

    So I wish this convicted felon a Bon Voyage back to the UK.

WE ARE NOT THEM. RAPE AND CHILD ABUSE IS NOT OK. get your shit together. You sound like you need counseling too. You and everybody applauding your ignorant ass comment.

  • Peace

    That’s not true. ITIN Individuals Tax Identification Number is issued only to certain Non-resident aliens and their spouses and dependents. His entire family probably had them since they came to the US.

    Filing under a ligit citizens name is highly detectable and a federal crime.
    He has Dreamer Status at best coming legally as a child. His lawyers have been working on this for months according to reports and his so called felony was supposed to be expunged.
    The shock value and sensationalism on Super Bowl Sunday undermines the real story.
    He was in a car with friends targeted in a sting and his status came up being his attorney’s are working on it. He was a minor when he came here.
    Dude will be ok in the ?? UK.

    Yep. My immigration paperwork was in limbo recently and I took days off of work to make SURE that it was in order, because I don't want to get kicked out. They will do it! As will many non-North Americans countries will give you the boot with the quickness, including Asian and Caribbean countries.

  • Cannelle

    This is really a good question.

  • Cannelle

    ...but they are only allowed to stay for 6 months, else they are outside of the law and must go back to Canada and apply for resident visa if they want to stay longer.

    Australia does not play games.

    Even Tronald Drump told Australian prime minister that he is worse.

    Australia finally stopped sequestering children on that island for migrants they keep near Papua New Guinea. The entire thing was (is) a human rights violation.

  • Cannelle

    I don't know, he is pretty high profile. It isn't as if he is an unknown living in the USA for 20 years and then one day, ICE comes knocking without warning.

    I am an immigrant in another country and if I had the money and status that he has, my paperwork would be handled by someone else -- at all times.

    It is such a pain in the A to have to run back and forth to immigration appointments (often not in the city of residence), take time off of work and pay tons of fees. But it is a part of the process and if us poor and less connected people can do it, why couldn't he not hire someone to do half of this stuff for him?

    Usually 14 - 16 is the age where one can still change accents. Learning to modify your accent after that is much more difficult. I will always sound like a foreigner, even if I speak the language perfectly.

  • Cannelle

    So many parents drop the ball on immigration paperwork, whether its for their biological or adopted children. I don't understand this -- yes it is onerous, but it is important AF !

    All i can say is wow, bra dumbed down his brittish accent to do mumble rap for years. Ultimate finesse

  • joel adams

  • yvette46

    One illegal black man arrested and going to be sent back!! While there are a billion Mexican using the system and are also criminals still here.. Go figure!!

  • LithiumHaitianFlower

    If the felony was expunged Someone close to him must’ve reported his status 9 months ago. Dang. He will be fine. He’s really from Dominica, I think, a Caribbean island but British territory

  • LithiumHaitianFlower

    They may have over looked it since the law weren’t hard on immigrants then

  • AmericanDream

    Stop lying you can file under what’s know was an ITN ( individual tax number )

    *Standing ovation*

    Nail on head! Beautifully said. ??

  • TamG

    I so appreciate your respect for the country and its laws. We need more people who think like you, less of the entitled illegals who dare someone to deport them.

  • LYRICS

    Right! I had NO clue!! I wonder if behind closed doors he enjoys a spot of tea??

  • TamG

    Watching too much mainstream media nonsense. Afraid to go against Democrats.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    But can he keep his street cred?? Will he have to sh00t somebody?

  • ClaireHuxtable

    I dunno. No. Yes. Maybe. What's the question again?

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Wyte folk have tried to colonize the entire planet. And they keep trying.

  • Ayeola George

    sigh .. m so tired of correcting folks.. but I guess its a learning experience and I should not expect everyone to know this. Dominica is an INDEPENDENT nation. Since 1978,. It is a FORMER British and FORMER French colony. We speak English and French Creole. I thank you.

  • Ayeola George

    Former English colony

  • Topic Influencer

    I will say until he popped up, I had never in my LIFE heard of Dominica. HE was the first one I EVER heard say they were FROM there.

  • Ayeola George

  • Rayne

  • hi-liter

    Everyone knew Slick Rick was from the UK, my point was, No One knew 21 was British.

  • Lucky8

    The wall wouldn't have kept him out. Most illegal immigrants came on visas and overstayed, than those crossing the border. Don't tell that to the cult 45 crew though, they want their useless racist wall.

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    Bottom line Feds been watching him and he was caught with criminals in a sting.

    They want him to Snitch.

  • Gina7169

    My husband is from there, but he was born in the US Virgin Islands.

  • Mrs. Davis804

    So we should only go against the covert racism of dems, and ignore the overt racism of repubs? Real ADOS are supporting neither. Sambos can continue choosing the lesser of two evils for dibs on the first boot lick.

  • Cannelle

    I'm an American who immigrated to Europe. I know better, because the Europeans would toss me out with a quickness. I understand that there are extreme cases such as that of refugees and that I'm in a privileged position being from North America, but I arrived here knowing that I needed to stay on top of the paperwork or else. It's their country and it is what it is!

    Also, immigrating to another country allowed me to realize that many other countries are serious AF about immigration. It doesn't matter if the country is rich or poor, if they don't want you there, they will get you out. I think that many Americans fail to realize that other countries have immigration policies more extreme than the USA. I'm not saying that we need to become exactly like the other countries, but it helps to put things in perspective.

  • Kimberly King

    ULTIMATE! Had me thinking he was an Atlanta n*gga for real ! Lmao nevertheless, BBO is still one of my fave songs that he was on.

  • LithiumHaitianFlower

    I hope he beats this. He just recently started to make a difference with the community. Dang

  • Mrs. S. O.

    Auntie announced a couple months back that she was a full U.S. citizen now.

  • rockstar2142

    first Off we don’t expect that from them. You shouldn’t be stereotyping all white people. And no I don’t believe we should get away with it I just think we all need to be held at the same standard. If you gonna start banning him well then you mine as well ban them all. They are no better than each other.

    My mom followed the law and applied for our green cards before we we even arrived in the U.S. as children.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Lol, I never said I was a full citizen. You have me mixed up with another blogger. I still have my green card.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    My original green card - which was actually the color green - was lost in the 1980s. Once you are issued a green card, it is good for life.
