JAY-Z & Roc Nation Reportedly Hire Legal Help For 21 Savage

New York, NY – While 21 Savage remains locked up following his recent ICE arrest, JAY-Z is stepping up to help the British-born rapper. According to TMZ, the Hip Hop mogul calls 21’s situation “an absolute travesty” and will do whatever he can to assist — much like he did with Meek Mill. 

As a result, Jay has enlisted Roc Nation to respond to a “matter of injustice” by hiring attorney Alex Spiro.

“We are not going to stop until he is released, bonded out or in front of a judge,” Spiro said. “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.”

The I Am > I Was artist was taken into custody on Sunday (February 3). It was discovered he was actually from the U.K. and had been in the United States illegally for over a decade. In a statement from attorney Charles Kuck, his legal team revealed he’s had a pending U visa application for years.

In 2017, he reportedly reapplied for the U visa, which may have triggered the background check and ultimately led to his arrest.

21 is currently in “removal proceedings,” but his legal team vows to fight deportation.
