Jay released a statement today in support of 21 Savage. “The arrest and detention of 21 Savage is an absolute travesty, his U visa petition has been pending for 4 years,” Jay wrote. “In addition to being a successful recording artist, 21 deserves to be reunited with his children immediately, #Free21Savage.

Jay-Z has stepped in to assist with 21 Savage’s battle to be released from the custody of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). According to a report TMZ published on Wednesday (Feb. 6), Jay has hired a lawyer to work on Savage’s case.
The attorney hired by Jay, Alex Spiro, also released a statement to the celebrity news site.“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.”
JAY-Z and Meek Mill recently announced the launch of a new criminal justice reform organization called REFORM alliance
