First Name Tom, Last Name Foolery… And I’m Everybody’s Uncle!
Including this illegal trap star… 21 Savage.
Rapper 21 Savage faces possible deportation after being arrested by U.S. Immigration & Customs Enforcement officials Sunday morning, an ICE spokesman told The Times.
The 26-year-old, who has long claimed Atlanta as his hometown, was arrested in the city after allegedly overstaying a visa that expired in July 2006. According to ICE, Savage, whose real name is Sha Yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, actually hails from the United Kingdom.
"Mr. Abraham-Joseph was taken into ICE custody as he is unlawfully present in the U.S. & also a convicted felon," said ICE spokesman Bryan Cox.
"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, Ga."
Just this past Thursday, Savage joined local Atlanta rappers T.I., Migos, Lil Yachty & Ludacris onstage at a Super Bowl Music Fest concert.
After being taken into custody during a "targeted operation," Savage 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," Cox reported.
In a statement to The Times, the rapper’s lawyer, Dina LaPolt, said: "We are working diligently to get Mr. Abraham-Joseph out of detention while we work with the authorities to clear up any misunderstandings. Mr. Abraham-Joseph is a role model to the young people in this country, especially in Atlanta, Ga., & is actively working in the community — leading programs to help underprivileged youths in financial literacy.”
