21 Savage is going on the record for the first time, through his reps, and revealing the timeline of his worldwide travels, claiming he has actually been in the United States since the age of 7.

The father of three faces possible deportation from the country where he's lived since he was a child.

A Georgia lawmaker is urging federal officials to release British-born rapper 21 Savage after Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials detained him in Atlanta this week.

Bebe Rexha has defended Demi Lovato, after she was forced to quit Twitter when she received backlash for a joke she made about 21 Savage. On Wednesday, XXL reported that Jay-Z went a step further and through his entertainment company, Roc Nation, his team is offering legal support to Abraham-Joseph.

But the timing of the arrest strikes many as curious. His visa expired in 2006.

21 Savage - whose real name is Shayaa Bin Abraham-Joseph - was arrested in Atlanta at the weekend after ICE agents claimed he is actually a British citizen who has overstayed his United States visa for over a decade. It appears the charges against Savage's cousin, rapper Young Nudy, were unrelated to the ICE arrest.

He continued to explain that his legal status expired in 2006 and he filed an application for a U visa in 2017, and that he has three USA citizen children and a mother and four siblings who are in the country lawfully.

According to confirmed reports, the Hip Hop mogul has hired high-profile attorney Alex Spiro to defend the rapper, whose recent immigration issues could leave him deported to the United Kingdom indefinitely.

"In addition to being a successful recording artist, Savage deserves to be reunited with his children immediately", Jay-Z said, while adding that his arrest was "an absolute travesty". He also survived a shooting in 2013, which is why he applied for the U visa. Therefore, until the day this gets sorted out, it's still Free 21 Savage!
