Savage Confirms He Was Born In The United Kingdom

Savage Confirms He Was Born In The United Kingdom

21 Savage's legal team denies the rapper had a Glock, which reports say lead to his arrest on Super Bowl Sunday.

They explained how Savage was born in the United Kingdom and arrived legally in the US under an H-4 visa, where he stayed until 2005, when he left for around a month to visit his country of birth, before returning, again under a valid H-4 visa, in July 2005.

TMZ has reportedly obtained three police reports that suggest that 21 drove his red Dodge Challenger over the sidewalk in an attempt to get to another street, where he was then pulled over and ordered to drop the vehicle keys out the window.

Jay-Z has come out in support of the rapper and asked his lawyer Alex Spiro to assist in 21 Savage's case.

A highly popular rapper in his supposed home city of Atlanta with a very strong fan base, news of 21 Savage's arrest came as shock to many as he is always known to be a native of the city. According to Fortune, the rapper has since applied for a U visa (a visa meant for victims of crimes who can aid in the criminal investigation). A styrofoam cup containing an unknown substance was found in the center console.




The Atlanta rapper is now in the custody of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) awaiting his fate. One man named Kalil Smith, who was in a different auto than Savage, was reportedly driving with an M4 rifle in the floorboard with the muzzle pointed in the direction of the officer. Ice says Abraham-Joseph is unlawfully present in the US and also a convicted felon.

Abraham-Joseph is the father of three children born in the USA and is known in his longtime home of Atlanta for supporting local community projects, such as an annual school supply giveaway at the beginning of the school year.

H-4 visas are granted to the children of immigrants who hold H-1B visas, which are given to foreign workers in specialty occupations.

TMZ quoted Jay-Z saying: "In addition to being a successful recording artist, 21 deserves to be reunited with his children immediately".

"Mr. Abraham-Joseph has no criminal convictions or charges under state or federal law and is free to seek relief from removal in immigration court".
