Jay-Z is lending his voice and resources to assist in 21 Savage’s release from prison.
TMZ reports that Jay-Z is speaking out on Savage’s arrest, calling it a travesty, while Savage says he became a target when the message in his music began to change.
The hip-hop mogul calls the arrest and detention of the “Bank Account” rapper “an absolute travesty” … and points out his U Visa application has been pending for years.
Jay says … “In addition to being a successful recording artist, 21 deserves to be reunited with his children immediately.”
Also, even though Savage isn’t a Roc Nation artist, Jay-Z’s company has responded to what it calls a “matter of injustice” by hiring attorney Alex Spiro to assist with his case.
According to the reports, Savage has had a visa permit pending for 4 years before his arrest. He believes he was targeted after releasing new music denouncing immigration officials.
