21 Savage Released
21 Savage is a free man. After 9 days in ICE custody, the rapper’s officially out on bond. The news comes directly from Savage’s lawyer who shared the good news on Facebook.
“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’s manager Kei Henderson also confirmed his release on Twitter.
A “Free 21 Savage” rally was scheduled for today in Atlanta. The news comes after Jay Z hired lawyer Alex Spiro to help expedite Savage’s release.
We’re genuinley happy for 21 and glad he’ll be back home with his family. He’s not out of the water yet, his deportation hearing is still pending—but we’ll take this good news for now.
