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.
via Atlanta Journal-Constitution:
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?
