ICE arrests rapper 21 Savage, says he's actually from UK on expired visa

Rapper 21 Savage, who claims to be from Atlanta’s Zone 6, has been arrested by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

According to WSB, 21 Savage, whose real name is Sha Yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, was taken into custody in a “targeted operation,” ICE spokesman Bryan Cox said.

It's been reported that ICE arrested 21 Savage on Atlanta Sunday. According to his Wikipedia page, he was born in Atlanta in 1992.

Cox said Abraham-Joseph is an “unlawfully present United Kingdom national” who came to the U.S. on a visa in July 2005. His visa expired a year later, Cox said.
