Rapper 21 Savage has been released from a detention centre in Georgia.
The Grammy-nominated rapper was freed from immigration custody yesterday on a $100,000 US bond.
He was arrested by ICE Feb. 3 for overstaying his visa, which expired in 2006.
The British citizen was born in East London and came to the United States when he was seven years old.
According to immigration officials, he has been living illegally in America since 2006 when his parents failed to renew his visa.
Prior to his release, celebrities including DJ Khaled and Kendrick Lamar appeared in a video defending the rapper and other undocumented immigrants.
“The time for change is now,” DJ Khaled said in the video.
