(AllHipHop News) Rap star Jay-Z is throwing his power behind 21 Savage.
According to reports, Jay-Z has hired a powerful attorney named Alex Spiro to defend the rapper.
"In addition to being a successful recording artist, 21 deserves to be reunited with his children immediately."
21 Savage was arrested by ICE officers on Sunday in Atlanta, claiming he is a British national who is living in the United States illegally.
21 Savage came into the country with his mother when he was seven, but his expired Visa expired back in 2006.
The latest reports say 21 Savage reapplied for a new Visa back in 2013, but it is pending. Alex Spiro is working to get 21 Savage freed from prison, where he is currently locked down 23 hours a day.
"We are not going to stop until he is released, bonded out or in front of a judge ... What we have here is someone who overstayed their Visa with an application pending for 4 years - not a convicted criminal that needs to be detained and removed but, by all accounts a wonderful person, father, and entertainer who has a marijuana offense which was vacated and sealed," Alex Spiro said.
