21 Savage To Be Granted Freedom On Bond
After over a week since his arrest by The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in Atlanta, 21 Savage has been granted bond. The rapper is still in custody, despite reports saying that he had been released.
“It’s a good day for She’yaa and everyone else that is locked up that shouldn’t be,” 21’s lawyer Alex Spiro said.
The rapper was arrested on February 3rd during a targeted operation, with ICE later releasing a statement clarifying that Savage was a United Kingdom national.
His lawyers Charles H. Kuck, Dina Lapolt, and Spiro released a statement to accompany the news.
“21 Savage asked us to send a special message to his fans and supporters—he says that while he wasn’t present at the Grammy Awards, he was there in spirit and is grateful for the support from around the world and is more than ever, ready to be with his loved ones and continue making music that brings people together.”
The rapper is expected to be freed after a deportation hearing, which is scheduled for Wednesday.
