I had just watched 21 Savage’s video ‘a lot’ featuring J. Cole a couple hours earlier and knew I wanted to do a quick post about it. The video has the dope ass ‘phantom’ J Cole verse. It’s directed by Aisultan Seitov and the backdrop in the video is a nice ass mansion that I believe is the same mansion in Atlanta’s Juneteenth episode from season 1. The sample by The Fuzz’s 1971 ballad “I Love You For All Seasons”, which is a lovely song but the way the sample is used in ‘a lot’ gives it a somber tone. To my ear, the sample is positioned to sound like male falsetto even though the singers of the sample are female. As I got ready to create the post, I went to get the url for the video and then saw 21 Savage had be arrested and detained by ICE…because 21 Savage is technically from the U.K. 21 Savage was picked up by ICE Sunday. He apparently entered the U.S. legally in 2005 at the age of 12 but his visa expired the following year and he is now here illegally. He reportedly is being held for removal proceedings before the federal immigration courts. The issue is compounded because 21 Savage is also a convicted felon due to a drug conviction in 2014. His attorney, Dina LaPolt, tells TMZ; "We are working diligently to get Mr. Abraham-Joseph out of detention while we work with authorities to clear up any misunderstanding. Mr. Abraham-Joseph is a role model to the young people in the country -- especially in Atlanta, Georgia and is actively working in the community leading programs to help underprivileged youths in financial literacy." ICE states 21 Savage’s (whose real name is Sha Yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph) is a U.K. national who is unlawfully in the country and has been since 2006 when his visa expired. Some reports he came to the States a year earlier at the age of 12 from the Caribbean island of Dominica. The timing is just a bit fucked up coming on the heels of his fantastic video release and during Super Bowl week end. The young man has endured a lot in his short life span so this is just another obstacle I'm sure he will overcome. Check out the beautiful video below. Read the whole post here.
