Before being taken to custody by US immigration and customs enforcement in Atlanta on Sunday morning (February 3) 21 Savage was scheduled to perform on the upcoming 2019 Grammy Awards .
Earlier today (February 7) revealed an insider close to Post Malone's camp to Rolling Stone that 21 and Posty were scheduled to perform their Grammy-nominated single "Rockstar" as part of a larger medley that also included a separate performance with Red Hot Chili Peppers.
As it stands, Post and RHCP continue working practices as planned. There is no word on what the couple will actually do on the show.
This news comes as a police report, revealing that police found a Glock with an extended magazine inside the glovebox of the Dodge Challenger rapper ran into his arrest. Then, the 26-year-old artist was arrested by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Weapons and Explosives (ATF). It is unknown how ICE was involved in 21st arrest.
Nevertheless, one of the 21 lawyers, Brian Steel, told TMZ that neither the weapon nor the car belongs to the rapper. He didn't want to give further details about who owned the car or gun.
21 is still unlocked during ICE detention. Jay-Z has employed lawyer Alex Spiro to work specifically on Savage's immigration case. Roc Nation mogul calls the situation "an absolute travesty".
"In addition to being a successful recording artist, Savage deserves to be reunited with his children right away," he said in a statement, adding what 21st century law has pointed out earlier that rapper U Visa application has been under consideration this year .
Herr. Spiro has in a statement also promised to help get 21 Savage out of prison. "We won't stop until he's released, tied out or in front of a judge," he told TMZ. "What we have here is someone who exceeded their Visa with an application for four years – not a convicted criminal to be detained and removed, but for all accounts, a wonderful person, father and entertainer who has a marijuana offense is who were abandoned and sealed.
