21 Savage: Atlanta rapper really from UK, say US immigration

February 5, 2019 5:23 am

Atlanta rapper 21 Savage has been arrested by US immigration officials who say he is actually from the UK.

The rapper, Shayaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, came to the US in July 2005 aged 12 and failed to leave when his visa expired a year later, officials said.

An Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) spokesman said he was in the country illegally and a convicted felon.

In previous interviews, Abraham-Joseph has described a childhood in Atlanta.

The 26-year-old is also quoted as saying he was expelled from school in Atlanta aged about 12 or 13 for taking a gun to class.
