The rap star has finally been freed after 9 days in an ice prison.

21 Savage issued a statement and thanked his fans for their support.

"21 Savage asked us to send a special message to his fans and supporters -- he says that while he wasn't present at the Grammy Awards, he was there in spirit and is 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.”

During the ordeal, a variety of rappers came out to support, including Cardi B, Offset, Vince Staples, Metro Boomin and Jay-Z who hired the rap star's lawyers.
