JAY-Z Assisting 21 Savage In Legal Battle Against ICE
JAY-Z has come to 21 Savage’s defense following the rapper being arrested by ICE. According to Rap-Up, JAY said in a statement that 21’s arrest is an "absolute travesty." He also demanded that the rapper be released from detention immediately.
JAY said, "The arrest and detention of 21 Savage is an absolute travesty, his U visa petition has been pending for 4 years. In addition to being a successful recording artist, 21 deserves to be reunited with his children immediately."
Hov has hired attorney, Alex Spiro, to assist with 21’s case, calling it a "matter of injustice." Spiro told TMZ, "We are not going to stop until he is released, bonded out or in front of a judge … 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."
