ICE claimed the rapper arrived in the U.S. for the first time in 2005 aged 12, which 21 Savage denies.

TMZ has reportedly obtained three police reports that suggest that 21 drove his red Dodge Challenger over the sidewalk in an attempt to get to another street, where he was then pulled over and ordered to drop the vehicle keys out the window. 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.

Spiro is working with 21 Savage's Atlanta attorney Charles Kuck.

He also reiterated the same point that Savage's team has made since the rapper's arrest on Sunday (Feb. 3)-his U Visa application has been pending for years.

The latest name to throw support behind the Atlanta based and Grammy-nominated rapper who was arrested in Atlanta on Sunday by ICE officials on charges of being in the country illegally is legendary rapper and business mogul Jay-Z.

According to the documents obtained by the gossip site, responding officers ordered Abraham-Joseph to stop the auto and throw his keys out the window, which he did, along with a bottle containing an unknown liquid. "ICE provided incorrect information to the press when it claimed he had a criminal conviction".

In a statement released on Tuesday evening, attorneys for the rapper, whose real name is Sha Yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, confirmed he was born in the United Kingdom and also that he came to the USA when he was just 7 years old. The rapper since applied for a U visa.

'In addition to being a successful recording artist, 21 deserves to be reunited with his children immediately, ' Jay-Z said.

On Monday, 21 Savage's attorney, Charles H. Kuck, said the rapper "never hid his immigration status from the US government" and said his arrest was "based upon incorrect information about prior criminal charges".

Abraham-Joseph, 26, has been placed into removal proceedings before the federal immigration courts, the statement added.
