The interpreter of the title A lot was one of the finalists for the Grammy Awards. Many of his fans had bemoaned his absence at the ceremony where he was not ultimately award-winning. His lawyers have sent a message of thanks: “although he was unable to attend the ceremony of the Grammy awards Sunday in Los Angeles, 21 Savage was there in thought and is grateful for the support that came from around the world.”
His lawyers have explained that the famous kid of Atlanta, of british nationality as he eventually confessed, is irregular since the expiry of his visa in 2006. A situation comparable to that of 1.8 million young people who arrive in the United States children but remain undocumented as an adult. 21 Savage, the father of three children born on u.s. soil, remains in expectation of a judgement as to whether or not it should leave the country where he leads a nice career.
