21 Savage returns home in a private jet after detention
21 Savage returns home in grand style after spending a week in detention.
The rapper was spotted with his mum boarding the plane at a landing strip near the immigration detention center in southern Georgia where he'd been held since ICE. His lawyer Alex Spiro had the coolest comments to make about the photo of him flying a private jet.
"That's how we take people home when they win," he said.
This is coming a few days after the rapper was released from the ICE detention facility over his illegal stay in the United States of America.
Rapper, 21 Savage has been granted bail
US rapper, 21 Savage has been released on bond pending a deportation hearing, according to TMZ. The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) arrested the rapper early February. ICE says the rapper is a UK national and has been living in the US illegally.
According to Pitchfork, 21 Savage’s lawyers have issued a statement saying: “For the past 9 long days, we, on behalf of She’yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, known to the world as 21 Savage, have been speaking with ICE to both clarify his actual legal standing, his eligibility for bond, and provide evidence of his extraordinary contributions to his community and society.
“In the last 24 hours, in the wake of the Grammy Awards at which he was scheduled to attend and perform, we received notice that She’yaa was granted an expedited hearing. Today, 21 Savage was granted a release on bond. He won his freedom.
“21 Savage asked us to send a special message to his fans and supporters—he says that while he wasn’t present at the Grammy Awards, he was there in spirit and is grateful for the support from around the world and is more than ever, ready to be with his loved ones and continue making music that brings people together.
“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.”
