21, whose real name is Shayaa Bin-Abraham-Joseph, was detained by the government agency over Super Bowl weekend after suspicions that he’s British and was born in the United Kingdom. Despite the “X” rapper being born in England and brought to the States as a child by his parents, officials accused him of being an “unlawfully present UK national.” 21’s alleged birth certificate surfaced thereafter, showing that he was indeed born in East London. That happens to be the least of Savage fans’ concerns however, who are signing petitions and rallying for the freedom of the ATL-raised rap artist. And after an update on his current conditions while being forcibly held in the custody of America’s notorious U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement government clan, their concerns about the wellbeing of the 26-year-old just took a devastating sharp turn in another direction.
The co-manager, who goes by “Stone Mound Meezy (@MegaMeezy)” on Twitter, said that he’d spoken to him on the phone. ICE officials have placed him in lockdown for 23 hours of the day with no television (or presumably any other forms of information) nor any other forms of communication besides 10 minute phone calls that they allot him. “Everything I’ve told him that has been happening made him happy and makes this time fly by thank y’all for the support,” he concluded.
Unfortunately, there’s not much information left on 21’s immigration case, despite his lawyer Charles H. Kuck informing that he has not been charged with any crimes, thus making his detainment a “civil law violation.” Kuck added that 21 is eligible for relief from deportation and plans to fight for his freedom and reinstatement back into U.S. society.
We’ll keep you updated on more information connected to this as it becomes available. In the meantime, see how Savage fans are keeping the faith amid the latest update below.
