21 Savage Released After ICE Arrest—What's Next for Rapper?

21 Savage is a free man again. The I Am > I Was rapper was released from Immigration and Customs Enforcement custody on Tuesday, according to a TMZ report, 10 days after he was first arrested by the agency.

Savage's legal team released a statement to the publication explaining the 26-year-old was released on bond for an undisclosed amount and would remain free pending a deportation hearing.

"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," lawyers Charles H. Knuck, Dina LaPolt and Alex Spiro said in a statement.

Savage was originally scheduled to perform chart-topping song "Rockstar" with Post Malone at the 61 annual Grammy Awards on Sunday, but his detainment prevented him from being at the awards show.

Savage, whose real name is Shéyaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, was accused by ICE of living in the United States with an expired visa and was arrested by department officials on February 3.

Through his reps, Savage confirmed he was born in the London borough of Newham in 1992 and moved to the U.S. with his family when was just 7-years-old. He visited the U.K. in 2005 and returned to Atlanta—the city he predominately hails in his music—a month later. Savage's visa expired the following year and was never renewed when the rapper was a young teen.

The platinum-selling rapper filed for a U-Visa, which is currently still pending, in 2017. Knuck previously told reporters Savage has never tried to hide his immigration status from officials, noting the department was aware of the "A Lot" rapper's pending documents.

Savage is expected to appear before a judge for a deportation hearing. Although the date of the court hearing was not released, Savage's attorneys noted a judge granted an expedited hearing.

"He will not forget this ordeal or any other fathers, sons, family members, and faceless people, he was locked up with or that remain unjustly incarcerated across the country. He asks for your hearts and minds to be with them," the statement continued.
