21 Savage has been going through some unfortunate circumstances regarding his immigration status and now he takes an interview with The New York Times.
The Slaughter Gang rapper sits down with Jon Caramanica to talk about coming from an impoverished place in London, being ridiculed for his accent when moving to Atlanta, getting into fights at school, issues surrounding his ICE arrest, missing the GRAMMY Awards, Visa expiring, adolescence in his grandmother’s house, immigration policies, feeling like “A Lot” triggered the incarceration, and more.
Savage also had a conversation on Good Morning America last week where he touched on many of the same topics and he later turned himself in to Atlanta police over a theft warrant. Many celebrities have come to his aid including Jay Z who hired a special lawyer to help with his case.
21 Savage released I Am > I Was in December, which debuted at number one on Billboard’s Top 200 list. It currently sits in the second position.
Hopefully he and his legal team can settle this matter and have 21 Savage become a full-fledged US citizen.
