21 Savage Says If Deported, He’ll Still Be Rich In UK

21 Savage Says If Deported He'll Still Be Rich In UK

According to 21 Savage, if he gets kicked out of the country, his money is going with him.

21 Savage, who just dropped a new album, sat down with Big Bank and DJ Scream for their show Big Facts on Thursday (Oct. 1) to talk about his ongoing immigration case, and getting to thank Jay-Z and Beyoncé for legal help.

In February 2019, shortly after the release of his Grammy nominated album I Am>I Was, 21 Savage was detained by ICE for overstaying a visa that expired in 2006. Unbeknownst to the general public, the “Bank Account” rapper was moved to America from England when he was seven years old.

According to him though, no one is going to take his money if he ever gets deported.

“I don’t think they gonna do that, but if they do, shit, my money going with me,” he said. “Fa sho, I’ll be alright. Money don’t go nowhere. The money go wherever you go. Shit, they rich people over there [in the United Kingdom]. I’ma be one of them.”

He also recalled how life as an immigrant left him few options for success saying that, “I done overcame every obstacle came my way. N***a don’t really know how that shit be … just growing up. Like n***a in the hood and a n***a an immigrant, so no matter what, you can’t go to college. You can’t get no license, you can’t get no job.”

Jay-Z told 21 Savage to pay back his legal fees by “being great.”

Elsewhere in the interview, 21 discusses how grateful he was for the Carter family’s help freeing him from immigration detention. Apparently Jay-Z is just like the rest of us… just way richer.

“When I got out, I pulled up on Jay-Z at his house and shit. Him and Beyoncé was in there,” he says in the interview. “And we was kicking it. He a regular n***a. I just was thanking him. When I first got out, I texted him like, ‘I’mma pay you back.’ He was like, ‘I don’t want your money.’ He said, ‘Pay me back by being great.’ So I pulled up on him, chopped it up, just thanked him and shit like that, ’cause he ain’t have to do that shit.”

“The arrest and detention of 21 Savage is an absolute travesty, his U-visa petition has been pending for 4 years,” Hov told Billboard following 21’s arrest. “In addition to being a successful recording artist, 21 deserves to be reunited with his children immediately, #Free21Savage.”

There was one silver lining to his arrest, however. The social media frenzy that followed showed 21 who his real friends were.

“When I got out, I really started to see all the love, and I’m like, ‘Damn, that’s crazy,'” he recalled. “And I noticed all the fake love too, all the n****s who didn’t show love. So if you wondering why I’ve been stiff on you since I got out, it’s ’cause you a bitch, and you did not say ‘Free me!'”
