After being arrested and detained by ICE, rapper 21 Savage has confirmed that he was in fact born in the United Kingdom.
A birth certificate was obtained for a story from Reuters and it shows that Savage was born in a borough of London named Newham.
According to his reps, Savage immigrated to the U.S. at 7, left to visit the U.K. in 2005 and returned later in the month. His status expired in 2006.
Congressman Hank Johnson of Georgia has come to Savage's aid by sending a letter to the immigration judge and his lawyers continue to fight for Savage to stay in the United States.
