21 Savage’s Immigration Saga resolved

21 Savage faced immigration challenges that significantly impacted his recent appearance in Canada, resulting in his absence from Drake’s latest “It’s All A Blur” tour stop, as sources reported. On October 6, during his show at the Scotiabank Arena, Drake surprised the audience by bringing out Lil Baby instead of the expected “Rich Flex” rapper.

This Toronto show would have marked 21 Savage’s first performance outside the United States since ICE agents arrested him in 2019. Sources close to the situation revealed that authorities made the last-minute decision to revoke his work permit, but the reasons behind it remain unclear.

HipHopDX reached out to 21 Savage’s representatives for further clarification. Although 21 Savage has been touring with Drake, he didn’t appear on any Canadian dates, although the connection to immigration issues remains unconfirmed.

In response to these developments, Charles H. Kuck, Managing Partner for Kuck Baxter LLC, who represents 21 Savage (real name Shéyaa Bin Abraham-Joseph), stated that his client had resolved all previous immigration issues and would soon return to London.

Kuck’s statement affirmed, “She’yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph followed all applicable Immigration laws since ICE initially detained him. His immigration court proceedings have now concluded, and he is a lawful permanent resident of the United States with the freedom to travel internationally.”

To mark his impending return to London, 21 Savage released a video titled “London I’m Coming Home,” with his representative noting that his first London performance would be announced shortly. There are also hints that 21 Savage might embark on a world tour following the resolution of his immigration issues.

Billboard reported that 21 Savage is currently planning an international tour. Although he has been part of Drake’s “It’s All a Blur” Tour, his absence from Canadian dates raised questions about whether immigration issues were the cause.

21 Savage’s immigration woes began with ICE agents arresting him in February 2019. At the time, ICE stated that he had legally entered the U.S. in July 2005 but had become unlawfully present when his visa expired in July 2006. Additionally, he had a prior felony drug conviction from October 2014.
