JAY-Z Hires a Lawyer for 21 Savage

Just days after 21 Savage was arrested for reportedly overstaying his visa, the artist is getting is support from JayZ in a very big way. Attorney Alex Spiro confirms that he is helping assist in the 21 Savage case after being hired by Roc Nation and Jay-Z. Jay-Z sounded off on the arrest and called it a complete “travesty.”

“The arrest and detention of 21 Savage is an absolute travesty, his U visa petition has been pending for 4 years,” he shared in a statement to E! News. “In addition to being a successful recording artist, 21 deserves to be reunited with his children immediately #Free21Savage.”

Alex Spiro says “We are not going to stop until he is released, bonded out or in front of a judge…What we have here is someone who overstayed their Visa with an application pending for 4 years—not a convicted criminal that needs to be detained and removed but, by all accounts a wonderful person, father, and entertainer who has a marijuana offense which was vacated and sealed.”

For those not up to date on 21 Savage’s legal situation, ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) said they “arrested unlawfully present United Kingdom national Sha Yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph AKA ’21 Savage’ during a targeted operation with federal and local law enforcement partners early Sunday in metro Atlanta. Mr. Abraham-Joseph was taken into ICE custody as he is unlawfully present in the U.S. and also a convicted felon.”

At the same time, the 26-year-old’s lawyer said they were working with authorities “to clear up any misunderstandings.”
