Grammy-nominated rapper 21 Savage was arrested in Atlanta early Sunday by US Immigration and Customs Enforcement, according to ICE spokesperson Bryan Cox. The agency says he is illegally present in the United States.
ICE says that the rapper, whose real name is Shayaabin Abraham-Joseph, is a citizen of the United Kingdom, according to Cox. The agency alleges that he entered the US legally in July 2005, when he was a minor, but subsequently failed to depart under the terms of his nonimmigrant visa. ICE says Abraham-Joseph became unlawfully present when his visa expired in July 2006.
“Mr. Abraham-Joseph is presently in ICE custody in Georgia and has been placed into removal proceedings before the federal immigration courts,” ICE said in a statement. “ICE will now await the outcome of his case before a federal immigration judge to determine future actions.”
An attorney for Abraham-Joseph said his representatives were working to secure his release.
“We are working diligently to get Mr. Abraham-Joseph out of detention while we work with the authorities to clear up any misunderstandings,” Dina LaPolt said in a statement to CNN. “Mr. Abraham-Joseph is a role model to the young people in this country, especially in Atlanta, Georgia, and is actively working in the community leading programs to help underprivileged youths in financial literacy.”
Abraham-Joseph was also convicted on felony drug charges in October 2014 in Fulton County, Georgia, ICE said.
Cox said Abraham-Joseph was arrested in a targeted sting.
21 Savage features on the song “Rockstar” by Post Malone, which was nominated for Record of the Year and Best Rap Performance at the Grammys.
ICE’s allegation that Abraham-Joseph is British came as a shock to the artist’s fans, as he is most closely associated with Atlanta and its music scene. He has said the “21” in his name is a reference to a street gang in Decatur, and his songs often refer to his past in East Atlanta’s Zone 6. In “Bank Account,” for example, he raps that he is “straight up out the 6.”
The Atlanta-based rapper released his album “Issa Album” in 2017, featuring the hit song “Bank Account.” His second album “I Am > I Was” was released in December 2018. He has also released a collaborative album with Offset and Metro Boomin named “Without Warning” in October 2017.
One of R. Kelly’s alleged victims, Azriel Clary, claimed on Surviving R. Kelly that she was flown out from California to Orlando on May 25, 2015 when she just 17. TMZ now reports that the FBI is reportedly looking into whether or not R. Kelly booked those flights.
R. Kelly allegedly flew her out intending to have sex when she was still underage, meaning he would be violating the Mann Act in transporting a minor across state lines for sex. A source close to Azriel’s family said that the flights weren’t booked by R. Kelly himself, but a woman who was working for him at the time.
However, sources close to R. Kelly claim that he doesn’t believe he was in the wrong because he had a signed note from Azriel Clary’s mother Alice, which he says gave Kelly’s assistant consent to care for Azriel “until December 30, 2015.” Interestingly, the note is dated for September 21, 2015, even though Clary made the trip in May.
FBI also reportedly contacted the family of another of his alleged victims, Joycelyn Savage, in the weeks leading up to the premiere of Surviving R. Kelly. Her father, Timothy, provided the FBI with everything he knew regarding the whereabouts of both Kelly and his daughter, who he says has been brainwashed by the singer as one of his “sex slaves.”

Kylie Jenner just reached a new milestone.
On Tuesday, the 21-year-old made her first-ever appearance on Forbes‘ Wealthiest Celebrities in America list, landing at No. 5 with a net worth of $900 million. Though Jenner has her hands in everything from reality TV to lucrative endorsement deals, most of her money comes from Kylie Cosmetics—a wildly popular beauty company of which she has 100 percent ownership.
Kylie, who is predicted to become “the youngest self-made billionaire,” says platforms like Instagram played a large role in her company’s success.
“Social media is an amazing platform,” Jenner told Forbes. “I have such easy access to my fans and my customers.”
The mother-of-one shares this year’s No. 5 slot with JAY-Z, whose net worth grew by $90 million over the last year. Forbes credits the surge to Hov’s big business deals with companies like Armand de Brignac champagne and D’Ussé cognac, as well as his stakes in Roc Nation and Tidal.
George Lucas leads the list with $5.4 billion. Steven Spielberg takes the No. 2 position ($3.7 billion); Oprah Winfrey comes in at No. 3 ($2.8 billion); and Michael Jordan follows with $1.7 billion.
Rounding out the top 10 are David Copperfield (No. 7, $875 million), Diddy (No. 8, $825 million), as well as Tiger Woods and James Patterson, who tied at the No. 9 position with $800 million each.
Burna Boy isn’t slowing down anytime soon.
The Afrobeat artist is easily top 3 in the country right now, with hits like “Gbona” and selling out the O2 arena in London last month.
He is relentless with this wave as he drops a new banger titled “On the Low” with crisp visual.

Tekashi69 was working on a music video in Brooklyn early Sunday morning and at around 4AM he wrapped it up for the night and drove home. When he got home, another car pulled up and blocked his driveway.
3 hooded gunmen got out of the other car, grabbed Tekashi and pistol whipped him, knocking him unconscious.
69 then found himself in back seat of the car as the gunmen were driving around, telling him if they didn’t get what they wanted from him, which were jewelry and money, they would kill him.
The gunmen pulled up to Tekashi’s home and 2 of them made their way inside, as the third guarded 69 inside the vehicle. They took around $750k in jewelry and between $15k and $20k in cash.
Tekashi’s baby mama and daughter were inside the house but not hurt.
The gunmen drove away with Tekashi still in the back seat. At some point 69 was able to open the back door and jumped out. One of the gunmen began chasing him but got scared and retreated because he was afraid he’d be ID’d.
Tekashi jumped in the passenger seat of a stranger’s vehicle and pleaded for help. The stranger called 911 and then asked 69 to get out of the car at an intersection.
An ambulance came and Tekashi was taken to a hospital, where he remains. Doctors are performing various tests, including a CT scan.
