U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement arrested rapper 21 Savage on Sunday, saying he’s a U.K. national who entered the U.S. in July 2005 and has overstayed his visa, which expired a year later, reports the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Details: An ICE spokesperson told the Journal-Constitution that the rapper, whose album "I Am > I Was" spent two weeks at the top of the Billboard charts last month, was taken into custody in a "targeted operation" in Atlanta, which he had claimed as his hometown. 21 Savage performed in the Atlanta area as recently as Thursday as part of pre-Super Bowl festivities.
