21 Savage found himself free again today after posting bond, thanks to his celeb friends and Jay-Z's lawyers.  Mystikal is also out on bond today after a year and a half behind bars on a rape case.  Everything inside.

21 Savage is officially out on bond as he awaits his deportation case.

Just before his release today, Kendrick Lamar, Post Malone, SZA, Mike Tyson, T.I., J.Cole and over a dozen other celebrities, musicians and activists joined together in a video for Mic to call for the rapper to be released from the custody of the Immigration Enforcement Agency (ICE). ICE says 21 Savage is a citizen of the United Kingdom and entered the country legally in July 2005 as a minor, but subsequently overstayed his visa. He apparently had applied for a U-Visa recently and was awaiting a response.

She’yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, aka 21 Savage, was arrested by ICE in Atlanta during Super Bowl weekend and has been placed into deportation proceedings. Because the rapper was being held without bail up until now, he missed the Grammys on Sunday, where he was scheduled to perform.

In Mic’s new video, Malone and others are speaking out about 21 Savage's case, while also highlighting the stories of other undocumented immigrants who have been either detained or deported by ICE and other government agencies while going about their everyday lives, or as Lamar says, for "just living life in America."

 

 

 

 

 

 

TMZ reports:

It's unclear why ICE held 21 for so long because, by all rights, he should have been allowed to bond out the day he was arrested. He was neither a flight risk nor a danger to his community, which is the standard for holding someone in jail pending a deportation hearing.

His legal team - which reportedly is being paid for by Jay-Z and Roc Nation - gave a statement saying:

21 isn't the only locked up rapper with good news. New Orleans' rapper Mystikal is getting released after a new record deal, family and friends helped him post a $3M bond.  Back in August 2017, he was wanted, then arrested, for rape and kidnapping charges.

Mystikal (real name Michael Lawrence Tyler) was charged after an alleged incident that went down in a downtown Shreveport casino back in October 2016.  Investigators say DNA evidence from the 46-year-old rapper and 26-year-old Averweone Holman and a woman who were also tied to the alleged rape.

According to reports:

Mystikal's attorneys tell us the rapper was able to scrape together $3 million for the bond ... securing his release from a Louisiana prison. We're told the money came from an advance for a new recording deal, and funds raised by Mystikal's family and friend.

TMZ broke the story ... Mystikal -- real name Michael Tyler -- was ironing out the final details last month. He'd been behind bars since August 2017 when he was booked for first-degree rape and second-degree kidnapping.

We'll see what happens.
