New reports are coming out in regards to the recent arrest of 21 Savage, as now it's been alleged that the rapper was pulled over after driving recklessly on the day in question, where cops found him in possession of a fully loaded Glock. The Brooklyn rap legend also put out a statement and called the arrest ludicrous, since Savage was locked up for overstaying his visa despite his reportedly applying years ago for a U visa, a type awarded to victims of crimes. Since then, Jay Z, along with Roc Nation, has reportedly hired a lawyer for Savage to help with his case.
Knuck called 21 Savage's arrest and detention a "civil law violation" that "serves no other objective than to unnecessarily punish him and try to intimidate him into giving up his right to fight to remain in the United States".
