As REVOLT previously reported, 21 Savage is once again able to travel the world legally after obtaining permanent residency within the United States. Not long before he surprised fans in Toronto for Drake’s “It’s All A Blur Tour,” the Atlanta-based talent shared a video on social media confirming that he’ll soon be returning to London, his hometown.
On Monday (Oct. 9), 21 officially announced a big homecoming show that will take place across the pond in November. 21 Lil Harold and Baby Drill will also be taking to the stage at O2 Arena as supporting acts. Those interested in attending can head over to Live Nation when presale tickets begin on Wednesday (Oct. 11). General sales go out this Friday (Oct. 13). The event will mark 21’s first-ever show in the United Kingdom, and will hopefully spawn additional sets in other countries across the globe.
21 Savage was previously arrested back in 2019 while riding in a car with Young Nudy and two other individuals. “Mr. Abraham-Joseph initially entered the U.S. legally in July 2005, but subsequently failed to depart under the terms of his nonimmigrant visa and he became unlawfully present in the U.S. when his visa expired in July 2006,” read a statement from the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) shortly after said arrest. “In addition to being in violation of federal immigration law, Mr. Abraham-Joseph was convicted on felony drug charges in October 2014 in Fulton County, Georgia.”
On Friday (Oct. 6), 21’s lawyer, Charles Kuck, told Associated Press that the Grammy Award-winning artist followed “all applicable immigration laws since his initial detention by ICE.” “His immigration court proceedings have now been terminated and he is a lawful permanent resident of the United States with the freedom to travel internationally,” Kuck revealed in a statement.
