After ATL-based rapper 21 Savage was arrested by ICE agents on Super Bowl Sunday, many notable Hip-Hop personalities took to their respective platforms to show their support for the 26-year-old emcee who appears the be a victim of the recent crackdown on illegal immigrants.

Cardi B, Post Malone, Migos’ Quavo, Metro Boomin, and others joined in on the fight to free Savage, whose real name is Shayaa Bin Abraham-Joseph. Bin Abraham, who was reportedly born on the British-colonized island of Dominica, was arrested by ICE because of an alleged expired visa being that Savage is reportedly not a U.S. citizen.

Savage’s birth certificate surfaced online yesterday, which shows that the “Bank Account’ emcee was actually born in Newham, which is in London, where he lived with his parents Kevin Emmons and Heather Joseph until he was 12 years old.

According to speculative reports, Savage was entwined in an investigation into Savage’s cousin and fellow artist Quantavious “Young Nudy” Thomas, who was arrested along with Bib Abraham-Joseph on gang-related charges.
