Jay-Z is lending his support to 21 Savage in the aftermath of the rapper’s arrest by ICE. “The arrest and detention of 21 Savage is an absolute travesty, his U visa petition has been pending for 4 years,” Jay-Z wrote on his Facebook page.
“In addition to being a successful recording artiste, 21 deserves to be reunited with his children immediately.”
Additionally, Jay and his label Roc Nation have hired attorney Alex Spiro to assist in 21 Savage’s legal proceedings, according to Variety. “We are not going to stop until he is released, bonded out or in front of a judge,” said Spiro in a statement.
“What we have here is someone who overstayed their Visa with an application pending for 4 years – not a convicted criminal that needs to be detained and removed but, by all accounts a wonderful person, father, and entertainer who has a marijuana offense which was vacated and sealed.”
