Written by MaxFM on February 4, 2019
21 Savage was arrested on Sunday by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) who allege the Atlanta rapper is a United Kingdom national who stayed in the U.S. illegally.
Rapper 21 Savage, who has long said he is from the US state of Georgia, was detained as officials say he is from the UK and overstayed his American visa.
An ICE spokesperson told CNN’s Nick Valencia per the journalist’s tweets.
“He actually came to the U.S. from the U.K. as a teen and overstayed his visa.”Advertisement

He wasn’t the target. Another rapper was. 21 got caught up while in the car. It wasn’t a targeted immigration detention as initially implied in the ICE release https://t.co/hfZaVl6btD
