21 Savage Sets Record Straight, Came To U.S At 7, Not 12
There has been a lot of speculation on rapper 21 Savage’s current situation and the circumstances on how he came to the U.S.
Reps for the rapper are setting the record straight for him, and despite ICE stating that he came to the country at 12, he has actually been in the United States since the age of 7. He adds that he left for a month in 2005 and came back, but had a valid visa.
As we reported, the rapper’s birth certificate shows that he was born in Newham, a borough in London, in 1992. He then moved to the U.S at 7 which explains why he calls Zone 6 home, as this is where he primarily grew up.
Savage’s legal team states, “like almost two million of his immigrant child peers, was left without immigration status as a young child with no way to fix his immigration status. These ‘Dreamers’ come from all walks of life and every ethnicity.”
His lawyers also believe that he is being targetted because he recently released music that criticizes the government and immigration policy.
