Savage Released on Bail, May Still Be Deported

Now, E! News can confirm that 21 Savage was released on bond from an ICE detainment center on Tuesday.

The lawyers said that 21 Savage, whose real name is Sha Yea Bin Abraham-Joseph, would not forget the ordeal or the other people he was locked up with who "remain unjustly incarcerated accross the country". And asks for your hearts and minds to be with them'.

The entertainer, whose real name is Sha Yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, was arrested on February 2 by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents over accusations he had overstayed his visa by more than a decade.

21 Savage freedom could only be temporary since he has an upcoming court hearing where an immigration judge will determine his fate.

On Tuesday, attorneys Charles Kuck, Dina LaPolt and Alex Spiro said in a statement that they had been in talks with ICE officials to "clarify" the rapper's legal standing and his eligibility for bond.

Savage, who was nominated for this year Grammy Awards, was arrested by the ICE earlier this month for being illegally present in the country.

Additional information suggested that Abraham-Joseph entered the USA lawfully in 2005.

Abraham-Joseph was born in the United Kingdom before being brought to the U.S.as a child, as his lawyers revealed last week in response to widespread confusion over why he had been detained by ICE. He was convicted of federal drug charges in 2014, which ICE cited as part of his arrest. As it was previously reported, Abraham-Joseph legally entered the United States in 2005 and his visa expired in July of 2006.
