21 - real name She'yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph - was released on bond on Wednesday, after being held by ICE since his detainment on February 3.

Grammy-nominated rapper 21 Savage was granted release on bond from United States immigration detention Tuesday, his lawyers said - nine days after his arrest sparked outrage among fellow music stars, fans and immigrant rights advocates alike.

The plane was taking them back to Atlanta to be reunited with family.

But 21 Savage's detention has also heightened awareness of the plight of undocumented immigrants, particularly in the Trump era.

The statement reads: 'For the past 9 long days, on behalf of She'yaa Bin Abraham Joseph, known to the world as 21 Savage, have been speaking with ICE to both clarify his legal standing, his eligibility for bond, and provide evidence of his extraordinary contributions to his community and society.

ICE has said the British citizen overstayed his visa and has an October 2014 felony conviction in Fulton County.

His lawyers have said the 26-year-old rapper was brought to the USA when he was 7 and his legal status expired in 2006 through no fault of his own. They've disputed that he has a felony conviction.

Abraham-Joseph applied for a new visa in 2017, and that case remains pending, Kuck said.

'Today, 21 Savage was granted a release on bond.

Rapper Post Malone performed hit track "Rockstar", which features 21 Savage, alone at the show in Los Angeles. And he asks for your hearts and minds to be with them'.
