      ICE, as it's often called in Donald Trump's America, may have iced an opportunity for a popular rapper to pick up his first Grammy Awards in-person.

      The Associated Press has reported that Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers have arrested 21 Savage, also known as Sha Yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph.

      This came in a "targeted operation" in Atlanta more than four years after the 26-year-old British-born star was convicted on felony drug charges and more than 12 years after his visa expired.

      On February 10, 21 Savage is up for Record of the Year and Rap/Sung Performance for "Rockstar", alongside Post Malone.

      Now in custody, 21 Savage could be deported to the United Kingdom.

      In 2017, his Issa Album debuted at Number 2 on the Billboard 200; the next year, I Am > I Was reached Number 1.

      Prior to achieving great success in the music business, 21 Savage was involved in gang activities.

      Warning: the video below for "Rockstar" includes graphic images of violence, as well as misogynistic lyrics. It's been viewed more than 475 million times on YouTube.
