Rapper 21 Savage was reportedly arrested in Atlanta and taken into custody for possible removal from the U.S.

21 Savage was picked up by ICE early Sunday morning, February 3. He apparently entered the U.S. legally in 2005 but his visa expired and he reportedly is in the country illegally.

He reportedly is being held for removal proceedings, this for being in the country illegally and for being a felon. He was convicted of drug charges in 2014.

His attorney, Dina LaPolt, says his legal team is working diligently to get the rapper out of detention all while working with authorities to clear up any misunderstanding.

An ICE spokesperson says 21 Savage, real name Sha Yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, is a U.K. national who is unlawfully in the country and has been since 2006 when his visa expired. They say he came to the States a year earlier at the age of 12.
