21 Savage‘s capacity to go abroad has been restored following a long period of uncertainty, and he intends to celebrate by setting up a show shortly. The rapper‘s legal group and the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) declared the news on Monday.
The attorney for 21 Savage, Dina LaPolt, addressed a statement which said: "We are pleased to announce that 21 Savage has been released on bond."
The announcement also stated that the 26-year-old rapper, whose real name is She‘yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, is able to work in the U.S. without the contention of ICE. 21 Savage will "pursue all lawful options to achieve permanent status in the United States."
At the beginning of February, 21 Savage was arrested by ICE with claims that he was unlawfully in the country. ICE said the rapper, who was born in the United Kingdom, had overstayed his visa from 2006. He had expressed his support for other immigrants and called for a “bill of rights” for immigrants in the U.S. without legal status.
Yet, 21 Savage won‘t let the events of the past few months slow him down. On Tuesday, he declared on Instagram that he was setting up a free show on Nov. 16 in East Atlanta. He named the concert "I Am > I Was: The Change" and local philanthropic organizations will be solicited to the event.
