Three days after he was released from Immigration and Customs Enforcement detention on bond and his past drug charges were dropped as grounds for deportation, the rapper born She’yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph now reportedly has a felony warrant out for his arrest on unrelated charges.
Reports reveal that the warrant is as a result of a show that 21 Savage was booked to play in southern Georgia in 2016.
According to the promoter, the rapper was paid a $9,500 advance before the show and collected a remaining balance of $7,500 upon arriving at the venue. He allegedly failed to perform on set but left with all the money anyway.
The promoter went to the local sheriff’s office in October of that year and filed a police report, and a warrant was issued for felony theft by deception, but officials never acted on it.
21 Savage’s attorney denied that he committed a crime. “Mr. Joseph has committed no criminal offense,” the lawyer, Abby Taylor, told TMZ. “We look forward to an amicable resolution between the parties in the near future with no criminal implications whatsoever.”
