“In addition to being a successful recording artist, Savage deserves to be reunited with his children immediately,” remonstrated Jay-Z about the recent arrest and detention of 21 Savage, government name: She’yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph. Jay-Z further decried the situation as “an absolute travesty.”
Impressively, the hip-hop tycoon’s bluster isn’t just hype. Hov hired a powerhouse lawyer for the up-and-coming rapper.
Lawyers and Politicians Lend 21 Savage Support
Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) picked up the UK-born Abraham-Joseph for overstaying in the United States. However, the artist’s attorneys claim law enforcement overstepped and point to a pending visa application. Moreover, it’s unclear if the singer’s mother brought him to the U.S. at age seven or 14. It’s a small detail that could significantly impact the case.
Alex Spiro, the lawyer Jay-Z hired for 21 Savage, lauded his client as a “wonderful person, father and entertainer.” High-profile celebrities and politicians, including Georgia representative Hank Johnson, are also starting to speak out in support of Abraham-Joseph. His case is becoming a cause célèbre as the broader national conversation about ICE heats up.
