21 Savage turned himself in to local authorities on charges of drug and gun possession in connection with a 2019 immigration incident when officials arrested him.
He was released on bail Thursday night, according to Buzzfeed.
Born She’yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, the rapper was initially detained by immigration and customs officials on February 3, 2019. He was later released on bail after his arrest drew international attention.
The government has continued his deportation for overstaying his visa after coming out of the UK at the age of 7.
Earlier this month, a warrant for his arrest was issued on suspicion of drug and gun possession in Dekalb County.
His lawyers claim he was not aware of the warrant, which was requested on September 7, until Thursday.
According to the arrest warrant, during a stop on the night of his ICE arrest, the rapper threw away a bottle of liquid that later tested positive for codeine. A gun was also found in the car.
“The warrant appears to have been requested on behalf of ICE, as the warrant was issued on the eve of an Immigration Court hearing in Mr. Joseph, and is based on events that occurred the night ICE Mr. Joseph arrested. more than 2 and a half years ago,” said Charles Kuck, who represents 21 Savage in his immigration case.
A hearing on his immigration status is scheduled for November 1. Kuck said ICE officials are refusing to end the case.
21 Savage is expected to join J. Cole on “The Off-Season Tour,” which kicks off tonight in Miami.
