Immigration authorities were trying to “unnecessarily punish” and “intimidate” 21 Savage into giving up his fight to remain in the United States, his lawyer said Monday, as the rapper faces deportation and potentially a 10-year ban from the country.
The musician, whose real name is She’yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, “never hid his immigration status” from the U.S. government.
21 Savage is a felon, been shot at, has kids, has a GA based record label aka Slaughter Gang, makes millions of off royalties for music streaming, pays US TAXES but ICE jus getting him for an overstayed visa? Something is not right and this makes 0 sense. #free21savage— . (@mrautoclutch20) February 3, 2019
