21 Savage arrested by US immigration force, says he’s illegally present in the US

News via CNN

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.

The FBI is Investigating R. Kelly for Booking an Underage Minor’s Flight

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.”

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.

Tekashi69 Pistol Whipped, Kidnapped, Robbed and Hospitalized

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.
