"21 Savage asked us to send a special message to his fans and supporters—he says that while he wasn't present at the Grammy Awards, he was there in spirit and is grateful for the support from around the world and is more than ever, ready to be with his loved ones and continue making music that brings people together," the team added.

Moreover, the star is determined to use his unfortunate experience as a way to shine light on the issue of incarceration. "He will not forget this ordeal or any of the other fathers, sons, family members, and faceless people, he was locked up with or that remain unjustly incarcerated across the country," the statement read. "And he asks for your hearts and minds to be with them."

Much speculation has surrounded the rapper's arrest and potential deportation, but his lawyers previously explained that his "legal status expired through no fault of his own."

 ICE previously stated that the rapper was a convicted felon, but lawyers recently clarified that he has no criminal record.
