Rapper 21 Savage has spoken for the first time since regaining his freedom from an arrested by Immigrations Customs Enforcement, ICE, for overstaying his visa.
The 26-year-old rapper, real name She’yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph,
talked about his experience on Good Morning America, just two days after he was granted bond from federal custody.
“I was just driving. And I just seen guns and blue lights. And, then, I was in the back of a car. And I was gone.
“They just said, ‘We got Savage.’ “
He added, “It was definitely targeted. There was helicopters.”
Before the release, 21 Savage’s lawyers, Charles H. Kuck, Dina LaPolt and Alex Spiro, shared in a statement that he had “won his freedom.”
“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.”
