21 Savage Confirms He Was Born In The U.K., Discusses Further Steps

The latest name to throw support behind the Atlanta based and Grammy-nominated rapper who was arrested in Atlanta on Sunday by ICE officials on charges of being in the country illegally is legendary rapper and business mogul Jay-Z.

As TMZ first reported, citing police reports related to the February 3 traffic stop in Atlanta, the Grammy-nominated artist, born in England with the given name Sha Yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, was behind the wheel of a red dodge Challenge when he came close to crashing into a marked cop vehicle. The document lists his parents' home as East Ham, a district within Newham.

TMZ has released a new story on Thursday claiming to have obtained three different police reports from 21 Savage's recent arrest in Atlanta.

Spiro said it's an overreaction by ICE. The 26-year-old rapper's lawyer notes that Abraham-Joseph's family overstayed a July 2005 visa.

They are calling for his release from custody - citing his strong familial links within America as proof that he is not a flight risk or danger to the community - in order to put put together the defence for his case, which is due to be heard in federal immigration courts.

It is also being reported that Arsenal and Tottenham are tracking the United prospect as well as the Italian and German giants. Henderson, from Whitehaven in Cumbria, joined United from Carlisle as a 14-year-old.

As a minor, his family overstayed their work visas, and he, like nearly two million other children, was left without legal status through no fault of his own. The rapper confirmed that he was indeed born in the United Kingdom, but came at an earlier age than what was widely reported.

He has applied for a U visa, designed for victims of crime who have suffered "substantial abuse" in the USA, after his lawyers said he survived a shooting in 2013.

The rapper has applied for a U-visa, which is pending with the US Citizenship and Immigration Services, Kuck said.

ICE spokesman Bryan Cox said on Sunday that the rapper was put in deportation proceedings because he has been living in the United States illegally since 2006 and has a felony conviction. It has reportedly been pending for four years.

Abraham-Joseph has several relatives in the United States, including three children who are U.S. citizens, and a mother and four siblings who are either lawful permanent residents or USA citizens, his lawyer said.
