Savage Released on Bond After ICE Arrest

21 Savage released from ICE detention

"Mr. Abraham-Joseph has been continuously physically present in the United States for nearly 20 years, except for a brief visit overseas", his lawyers said. The "Bank Account" rapper was granted bail on Tuesday and is now resting at home with his family pending an immigration court hearing.

Attorneys Kuck, Dina LaPolt and Alex Spiro issued a statement on behalf of 21 Savage that thanked his supporters.

21 Savage attends the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund on November 5, 2018, in New York City.

On Tuesday, 21 Savage's lawyers also passed on a message to the young rapper's fans, saying that while he was not at Sunday's Grammys Awards - "he was there in spirit and is grateful for the support from around the world".

21 Savage was nominated for two Grammy awards for featuring on Post Malone's hit song "Rockstar". 21 Savage apparently had a visa permit pending for four years before he reapplied for U Visa in 2017.

You Gotta See Dua Lipa's Priceless Reaction to Winning First Grammy
While Dua Lipa may not feel super new to us (I'm sorry, where was her Grammy for "IDGAF"?!), she's technically a new artist. In February 2018, Lipa won two BRIT Awards for British Female Solo Artist and British Breakthrough Act.

Unfortunately, Mr. Abraham-Joseph, who turned out to be an illegal immigrant from the United Kingdom, wasn't able to make it to the Grammy Awards.

U Visas are given to non-citizen victims of crime who intend to co-operate with United States authorities.

The entertainer, whose real name is Sha Yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, was arrested on February 2 by US Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents over accusations he had overstayed his visa by more than a decade. That application is pending, his attorneys said. And asks for your hearts and minds to be with them'. The news came was a surprise to those familiar with the rapper's career, widely seen as inextricable from the Atlanta rap scene where he first found fame.

He announced a "21 Savage Bank Account" campaign previous year that gave 21 teens $1,000 to start their own bank accounts and learn about financial literacy. He was convicted of federal drug charges in 2014, which ICE cited as part of his arrest.
