In the meantime, a massive social media campaign titled 21 Ways You Could Be Detained If You're Undocumented in America just dropped, with a slew of celebs showing solidarity and support for Savage. "He won his freedom", Charles Kuck, Dina LaPolt and Alex Spiro, representing 21 Savage, said in a statement.
Abraham-Joseph's lawyers said they've been speaking with ICE since his arrest to clarify his legal standing and his eligibility for bond.
"In the last 24 hours", the statement reads, "we received notice that She'yaa was granted an expedited hearing". The Grammy Awards ceremony was held Sunday. His name was only mentioned once during the show, by Childish Gambino's producer Ludwig Goransson while accepting their award for record of the year for which 21 Savage had also been nominated with Post Malone. "My best friend who died, his uncle had a whole lot of dope money, so he started buying me studio sets and s**t", 21 Savage said.
After his arrest, ICE said Abraham-Joseph entered the USA legally in July 2005, when he was 12, but has remained in the country illegally since his visa expired in July 2006. He was convicted on felony drug charges in October 2014 in Fulton County, Georgia, ICE said. He was placed in deportation proceedings in federal immigration court.
It's unclear what will happen to Mr. Abraham Joseph, but it's likely his situation is not good.

The video ends before the chair hits the ground, and police say it landed at the entrance of the condo building. The woman who threw a chair off a downtown Toronto condo balcony has now been identified.
They have previously said the 26-year-old rapper was brought to the US when he was seven years old and his legal status expired in 2006 through no fault of his own.
The rapper has several relatives in the United States, including his three children who are all USA citizens, and his mother and four siblings, who are either lawful permanent residents or US citizens, his lawyer previously said.
Joseph-Abraham's legal team compared the United Kingdom national to millions of so-called DREAMers, brought to this country as children whose immigration status expired through no fault of their own.
They also said he has a pending application for a USA visa - for victims of crimes who have faced mental or physical abuse in the United States - that was filed "as a result of being the victim of a deadly shooting in 2013" - and that his three U.S. citizen children make him eligible for deportation relief. That application is pending, his attorneys said. "Mr. Abraham-Joseph was taken into ICE custody as he is unlawfully present in the US and also a convicted felon".
Abraham-Joseph's lawyers said Tuesday that he asked them to send a message to his supporters.
