Following his arrest by Immigration and Customs Enforcement, 21 Savage has received an outpouring of support from his fans and fellow rap peers.

As previously reported, the rapper, a U.K. national who’s been in the U.S. illegally for years, was arrested during a targeted operation on Sunday and may now be deported.

In response to the unexpected arrest, Meek Mill, Cardi B, Offset and more have taken to social media to express their support for the “A Lot” lyricist.

“ALL THE MEMES AND S*** AINT FUNNY WHEN SOMEBODY GOING THROUGH SOME PRAYING FOR MY DAWG,” the Migos front man tweeted in the wake of the news.


Offset’s estranged wife Cardi B, meanwhile, went after conservative political commentator Tomi Lahren after she made light of the rapper’s arrest by changing the lyrics of his song “Bank Account” to “I got one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight ICE agents ready to deport ya.”

“Don’t make me get my leash,” Cardi wrote in response to Lahren‘s tweet. It was a reference to a previous exchange the two had on Twitter where Cardi had threatened to “dog walk” Lahren.

Meanwhile, Meek Mill has joined a chorus of other celebrities calling for 21’s freedom.

According to ICE, 21 legally entered the U.S. in July of 2005 under a non-immigrant visa. However, he “failed to depart” the country when the visa expired in July 2006. ICE claims the 26-year-old is in violation of federal immigration law; in addition, in 2014, he was convicted of felony drug charges in Georgia.
