Jay-Z joined a host of artists, including Cardi B and Offset, in defending 21 Savage and says his pending visa application means he should be released from custody.

The ongoing ordeal that 21 Savage is enduring as the result of his arrest and detainment by ICE officials had new details added on Tuesday (Feb. 5). The police report says a fully-loaded Glock with an extended magazine was found in the glove box of the vehicle.

United States lawyer Alex Spiro confirmed to Variety that Jay-Z had hired him for the case.

21 Savage, real name She'yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, has gone on record through representatives to officially declare his immigration status, after US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detained him under threat of deportation on Sunday.

A highly popular rapper in his supposed home city of Atlanta with a very strong fan base, news of 21 Savage's arrest came as shock to many as he is always known to be a native of the city. There was also a Styrofoam cup containing an unknown substance in the center console.

Jay-Z called the detention "an absolute travesty".

The 26-year-old rapper, who is nominated for two awards at the Grammys next Sunday, was driving in a reckless manner and had a loaded Glock handgun in the glove compartment at the time of his arrest last weekend, it was revealed today. However, a source at ATF claims ICE was there, but is not listed on the report. He also made mention of his pending U Visa application.

Police also found a loaded M4 rifle with a muzzle in the vehicle Kalil Smith was driving.

He told TMZ: "We are not going to stop until he is released, bonded out or in front of a judge".

"In addition to being a successful recording artist, 21 deserves to be reunited with his children immediately #Free21Savage".

"Mr. Abraham-Joseph has no criminal convictions or charges under state or federal law and is free to seek relief from removal in immigration court", they said in the statement. He took a trip to the United Kingdom in 2005 and returned on an H-4 visa, Kuck said.
