Grammy-winning artist 21 Savage, aged 30, is preparing for a significant homecoming after attaining “lawful permanent resident” status, as confirmed by his lawyer, Charles Kuck. Kuck’s statement highlighted that 21 Savage, born She’yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, has consistently adhered to immigration laws since his initial detention by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

The artist’s immigration court proceedings have now concluded, and he enjoys the status of a lawful permanent resident in the United States, granting him the freedom to travel internationally.

This development marks a significant turning point more than four years after 21 Savage’s arrest by ICE in a “targeted operation” due to an expired visa dating back to 2006. Following a ten-day detention period in a Georgia facility, he was ultimately released, as reported by the Associated Press.

Now, 21 Savage, based in Atlanta, looks forward to returning to his roots. He has hinted at a homecoming to London, where he spent his early years before relocating to the U.S. as a child.

The artist shared a video compilation on Instagram, featuring performance clips and childhood memories, all set to the soundtrack of Skylar Grey’s “Coming Home.” In his post, 21 Savage expressed his intention: “London… I’m comin home.”

Drake, who has been on tour with 21 Savage as part of their co-headlining “It’s All a Blur Tour,” commented on the post, suggesting that he may join his friend in London. “We’re,” wrote Drake, 36, in his response.

In his new track “8am in Charlotte,” featured on his latest album, “For All the Dogs,” Drake referenced 21 Savage’s resolution of immigration issues, rapping, “Savage got a green card straight out of the consulate. Where I go, you go, brother, we Yugoslavian.”
