Twitter – Social media exploded upon hearing the news 21 Savage was released from an ICE detainment center on Tuesday (February 12). The platinum-selling rap star had been behind bars since February 3.
According to a statement from his legal team, 21 was released on bond pending a detainment hearing after nine long days of fighting. His lawyers revealed 21 was grateful for all the support during the ordeal.
“He says that while he wasn’t present at the Grammy Awards, he was there in spirit,” the statement read. “[He’s] grateful for the support from around the world and is more than ever, ready to be with his loved ones and continue making music that brings people together.
“He will not forget this ordeal or any of the other fathers, sons, family members, and faceless people, he was locked up with or that remain unjustly incarcerated across the country. And he asks for your hearts and minds to be with them.”
JAY-Z and Roc Nation brought their legal team onboard last week to assist on his case. The label was one of the first to celebrate his release on Twitter.
