    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.

    This clears up a lot of the confusion. They was acting like this man was UK black royalty and was faking to be an atl street rapper. To me its not really funny joking about somebodies freedom (being locked up) and bread being taking from him (money from shows etc). He does have kids and family he supports. To me its all unwarranted.

    If someone was born abroad but lived in the US most of their life their going to pick up an American accent of the region they grew up in ie. Altantaian southern accent.

    To me isnt he the type of immigrant you want; someone who cant make millions and pay higher taxes.

    I suspect a larger pettiness scheme.:patrice:

    There’s A LOT of merit to the “Abolish ICE” movement, even though our whole immigration system is fucked up.

    Yep and some Police departments like the one in my city stopped collaborating with ICE. It was actually harming the immigrant community. Ppl would really prey on, rob, even murder them, knowing that they would be scarred to go to police fearing if they go their info would be sent to ICE.

    It just seem like the whole ICE arrest process seems a bit arbitrary. It was a HS kid that got arrested by ICE while he was at his bus stop.

    ICE was another bloated bureaucracy that was created out of the post-9/11 spending spree we call the Patriot Act. There was no reason to change the former INS setup. You could easily dismantle ICE and roll the useful elements back into Border and Customs or DOJ, separate the investigations section into its own entity (which they’ve asked for and I agree) while getting rid of the many useless overpaid government attorneys at ICE who don’t do really useful work like DOJ attorneys.

    But as Margaret Thatcher said, once you create a government bureaucracy you’ll never get rid of it because now you have too many lazy stupid government workers who’ll want it perpetuated for the sake of their jobs...
