21 Savage, legal name, She'yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, will be released on bond from ICE custody Wednesday morning after being held for nine days. 21 Savage was arrested on February 3, allegedly because his visa expired and shocked the world with the news that he had been born in London.
“Today, 21 Savage was granted a release on bond,” his attorneys said in a statement Tuesday via CNN. “He won his freedom.”
"He will not forget this ordeal or any of the other fathers, sons, family members, and faceless people he was locked up with or that remain unjustly incarcerated across the country. And he asks for your hearts and minds to be with them,” the statement continued.
What followed was a strange story of competing information from ICE, who tried to portray him as a hardened criminal and his team, which showed him to be someone who overstayed his Visa as a teen. ICE accuses Joseph, 26, of overstaying a one-year Visa he had in 2005 and his parents did not renew it.
His lawyer Charles Kuck says Joseph has a pending visa application from 2017. Stay tuned as his legal proceedings with ICE are not close to done.
