UPDATE: 21 Savage is said to have been released on $100,000 bail, the rapper has been detained for some days now due to allegedly overstaying his visa.
According to multiple media outlets, the Grammy-nominated producer, rapper and songwriter who is based in Atlanta is a British born who legally entered USA in July, however, he allegedly never renews his visa when it expired the following year (July 2006) until 2017 when he put in an application.
21 Savage was reportedly arrested on February 3, during an operation targeting at East Atlanta rapper Young Nudy. It is believed his arrest was unrelated.
“We are working diligently to get [21 Savage] out of detention while we work with the authorities to clear up any misunderstandings.” 21 Savage’s lawyer
21 Savage’s arrest has really surprised his fans because Wikipedia has the rappers nationality as American. It just doesn’t make sense to anyone. In saying that, Wikipedia also mentions that 21 Savage is a British rapper.

Saddened seeing this news on #21savage. There are many kids who are brought to this country that assume they are legal. I am American but when I left my island in the middle of the night after a hurricane I don't remember asking my Mom if she had all my legal documents!
