Last week, 21 Savage, born She’yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, was arrested and detained by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement after it was discovered he had been in the United States, under an expired visa.

After 9 long days, the rapper has been released after being granted bond. However, the battle is not over. Abraham-Joseph is now awaiting a deportation hearing, which has been scheduled for a later date.

“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,” said Savage’s attorneys Charles Kuck, Dina LaPolt and Alex Spiro wrote in a joint statement. Today, 21 Savage was granted a release on bond. 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.”
