Jay-Z Has Hired A Lawyer For 21 Savage

Jay-Z is standing with 21 Savage and supporting him through his deportation issues. Now TMZ has reported that Hov has hired a lawyer to work on Savage’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) case. He also released a statement about why he felt compelled to intervene.

“In addition to being a successful recording artist, Savage deserves to be reunited with his children immediately,” Jay-Z said, while adding that 21 Savage’s arrest was “an absolute travesty.” He also confirmed that the Atlanta native has a US Visa application that’s been pending for years.

The attorney hired by Jay-Z, Alex Spiro, also released a statement.

“We are not going to stop until he is released, bonded out or in front of a judge,” he told TMZ. “What we have here is someone who overstayed their Visa with an application pending for four 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.”
