Rapper 21 Savage is facing deportation after being arrested by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement in Atlanta on Sunday.

21 came to the U.S. on a Visa in July 2005 and it expired a year later, but he’s been living in the United States ever since. 

His U.K. birth certificate shows he was born Shéyaa bin Abraham on October 22, 1992 at Newham Hospital, in east London, and his parents,

Heather Joseph and Kevin Emmons, are also British.
