U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement arrested rapper 21 Savage early Sunday morning.
The agency claims the rapper is actually from the United Kingdom and has overstayed his visa.
21 Savage, whose real name is Sha Yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, was taken into custody in a “targeted operation,” ICE spokesman Brian Cox said.
Abraham-Joseph, 26, has claimed to be from Atlanta and has long been considered a local act. Just last fall, he gave free school supplies to more than 2,500 DeKalb County school students.
Cox said Abraham-Joseph is an “unlawfully present United Kingdom national” who legally entered the U.S. in July 2005 on a visa. His visa expired a year later, Cox said.
He was also convicted of felony drug charges in 2014 in Fulton County.
Abraham-Joseph has been placed in “removal proceedings before the federal immigration courts,” Cox said.
In other words — 21 Savage is about to be deported.
This is the craziest thing we’ve read all day. 21 Savage is a Brit? What?
