Default UK Rapper Posing as American Southerner Faces Deportation

Quote: (A) few days ahead of the Grammy Awards, where he’s up for the Record Of The Year with fellow rapper Post Malone for the song Rockstar, 21 Savage is facing deportation, and has been denied bail...

21 Savage — real name: She’yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph — was arrested by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers who accused him of being a British national who had overstayed his July 2005 visa after he arrived in the U.S. with his family...

Atlanta (Georgia USA) has been a fundamental part of Abraham-Joseph’s identity as a rapper. He spent the bulk of his childhood in Decatur, a suburb of Atlanta...(and) been public about the fact that he was banned from the county’s school district after bringing a gun to school, although he’s since become a prominent local advocate for gun control since his younger brother died of gun violence...His 2014 drug conviction was expunged from his record, although immigration officers don’t have to honor that expungement...He has three U.S.-born children...
And his timing couldn't be worse: for the release of his next album, he told his life story in a YouTube documentary...the second half of his life, at least, if this birth certificate the UK Daily Mail published is genuine:

What bothers me about it is that it's hand-written -- in 1992? MY original birth certificate is TYPED, and I'm not much older than Tico!

Remember how we used to talk about busting out? We'd break their hearts together...forever...

You and me and our old friends / hoping it would never end / holding on to never say goodbye...
