21 Savage released from ICE custody on bond, lawyers say

21 Savage, the British-born rapper who was arrested by immigration officials on Super Bowl Sunday, was released on bond Tuesday afternoon after spending nine days in U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) custody, according to a statement from his attorney’s office.

The rapper, known legally as She-yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, entered the United States illegally in 2005 and stayed in the country after his nonimmigrant visa expired a year later, according to ICE officials. He was convicted of federal drug charges in 2014, which ICE cited as part of his arrest.

On Tuesday afternoon, 21 Savage’s legal team said in a statement that the rapper had been released from custody on bail and was being placed into expedited deportation proceedings. Unauthorized immigrants are only eligible for release on bond if they’re determined not to be a flight risk or not a danger to their community.

“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,” his attorneys, Charles Kuck, Dina LaPolt and Alex Spiro, wrote in a Facebook post published Tuesday.  “And he asks for your hearts and minds to be with them.”

Kuck Baxter Immigration, the law office representing 21 Savage, confirmed the Facebook post and referred questions to FYI Brand Group, who did not immediately return an email requesting comment.
