Rapper 21 Savage has been freed and will now fight to stay in the USA.

 The Grammy-nominated rapper, who was born Sha Yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, was released from custody on Tuesday after being detained by US Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents in Atlanta.  

His lawyers said in a statement :“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 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.

 “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.” 

 21 Savage was nominated for two Grammy awards on Sunday, but was still in custody.
