It appears the charges against Savage's cousin, rapper Young Nudy, were unrelated to the ICE arrest.

The police reports - according to TMZ - state that 21 had a "fully loaded glock" in the lockbox of the red dodge challenger he was pulled over in.

Abraham-Joseph, whose recent album I Am I Was debuted at No. 1 on the U.S. Billboard charts, is a particularly high-profile arrest by ICE.

ICE spokesman Bryan Cox said on Sunday that the rapper was put in deportation proceedings because he has been living in the U.S. illegally since 2006 and has a felony conviction. The police report says a fully-loaded Glock with an extended magazine was found in the glove box of the vehicle. In late January, 21 Savage appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and performed an alternate version of "A Lot," the opening track on his 2018 album I Am I Was.

It was also confirmed that Jay-Z's company, Roc Nation has responded to what it calls a "matter of injustice" by hiring attorney Alex Spiro to assist with his case.

The person who Meghan was is who she continues to be, according to her pals, some of whom she still talks to every day. What also hasn't changed? Sounds like Meghan Markle's father, Thomas , may not have been " ghosted " after all.

ICE spokesman Bryan Cox said: "U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) 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".

Abraham-Joseph has been placed into removal proceedings, ICE said.

Abraham-Joseph is an "unlawfully present United Kingdom national" who came to the USA in July 2005 on a visa that expired a year later, Cox said. "As a minor, his family overstayed their work visas, and he, like nearly two million other children, was left without legal status through no fault of his own", the rapper's attorney, Charles Kuck, said in a written statement released to Reuters.

"In addition to being a successful recording artist, Savage deserves to be reunited with his children immediately", Jay-Z said, while adding that his arrest was "an absolute travesty".
