UPDATE: This story originally stated that 21 Savage had been released, according to statements from his lawyers, but the story has been updated to say he has been granted bond and will be released from ICE custody on Wednesday.
After nine days behind bars, 21 Savage has been granted bond and will be released on Wednesday. Savage's legal team posted a statement via Facebook on Tuesday (Feb. 12) saying that the rapper, born She’yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, has been granted a release on bond by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
The 26-year-old's fate will now ultimately be decided by a deportation hearing process, which will happen at a later date. "For the past 9 long days, we, on behalf of She’yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, known to the world as 21 Savage, have been speaking with ICE to both clarify his actual legal standing, his eligibility for bond, and provide evidence of his extraordinary contributions to his community and society," attorneys Charles Kuck, Dina LaPolt and Alex Spiro wrote in a joint statement.
