21 Savage Reveals Why He Kept His British Origins A Secret

A few years ago one of the most surprising stories to ever hit the rap world dropped. 21 Savage, who by this point was already a superstar rapper most commonly associated with Atlanta, was arrested by ICE. Fans confused by why the immigration organization wanted anything to do with the rapper quickly got a surprise answer. That came with the reveal that he was actually born in England and came to the United States as a young child. Since then he had been staying in the country illegally, which is at the center of a recent revelation he made online.

Since his arrest Savage has made the most of the forced reveal of his origins. He eventually fought through legal battles to be freed from ICE containment. After that he went on to get his official US citizenship to settle any future worries about his stay in the country. He used that as a platform to launch his first ever European tour where he played hyped shows in places like Paris and his native London. While in the UK he even shot the stylish music video for his recent hit song "redrum." But in a recent Instagram comment he clarified exactly why he kept things secret for so long and fans think he's making a pretty good point. Check out what he had to say below.
