Many have been coming to 21 Savage’s defense this week after the Atlanta rapper was arrested by ICE. He is currently facing possible deportation from the home and family he built in the United States. All of this stems from the fact that Savage moved to the States when he was 7-years-old with a valid Visa. After applying for a U-Visa in 2017, he was nabbed for overstaying his welcome. The Migos have been instrumental in their support for their colleague, encouraging the masses to sign the petition to Free 21 Savage. When Chris Brown posted a meme mashing up Savage’s XXL cypher with comedian Big Shaq, Offset was having none of it and decided to step up for his friend.
People have been clowning 21 Savage for days after it was revealed that he was born in the United Kingdom. Chris Brown was included as he shared a clip of the rapper freestyling during his XXL showcase, switching the vocals to U.K. star Big Shaq. Offset saw the post a few days after it initially was uploaded to Breezy’s page and he wasn’t impressed. “Memes ain’t funny lame,” wrote Set. He previously tweeted that nobody should be laughing about what is happening right now since 21 Savage has a serious chance of being deported.
What’s your take on this issue? Are the memes fair or should they be stopped?
