21 Savage has indeed been getting a lot of support from industry colleagues since his arrest and the latest is from music mogul and icon, Jay Z, who has hired a lawyer to handle his proposed deportation.

The 26-year-old rapper, who is nominated for two awards at the Grammys next Sunday, was driving in a reckless manner and had a loaded Glock handgun in the glove compartment at the time of his arrest last weekend, it was revealed today.

USA rapper Jay Z has called the arrest of 21 Savage by United States immigration officials 'an absolute travesty'.

"In addition to being a successful recording artist, 21 deserves to be reunited with his children immediately."

Bebe Rexha leapt to Demi Lovato's defense after the "Confident" singer was targeted by trolls on Twitter for mocking rapper 21 Savage's ICE arrest.

"We are not going to stop until he is released, bonded out or in front of a judge", he told TMZ.

However, that expired the following year "through no fault" of the rapper.

21 Savage is going on the record for the first time, through his reps, and revealing the timeline of his global travels, claiming he has actually been in the United States since the age of 7. Mr. Abraham-Joseph was taken into ICE custody as he is unlawfully present in the US and also a convicted felon.

ICE has said the artist was convicted of felony drug charges in October 2014, but Spiro said it was a marijuana conviction that was vacated.

"Mr. Abraham-Joseph, like nearly 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". The visa is available to those who have been the victims of a crime in the United States, have suffered physical or mental injury as a result of a crime and who are "helpful to law enforcement or government officials in the investigation or prosecution of criminal activity", according to ICE.
