21 Savage, whose legal name is Sha Yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, was arrested by ICE for overstaying his visa. ICE claimed that Abraham-Joseph is originally from the UK.Malone’s smash hit “rockstar” features 21 Savage, so he wore a shirt on-stage to honor the rapper.
According to Complex, 21 Savage’s legal team has released a statement regarding his current residency, confirming that the rapper is from the UK. However, the statement refutes 21 Savage’s past criminal charges, claiming that ICE may have provided false information to the press.
The statement also shares that Abraham-Joseph was only seven years old when he came to the United States on a legal H-4 visa. However, in 2005, he visited the UK for only a month and then came back.
