In 2019, he was arrested by U.S. immigration services, which accused him of having been in the U.S. illegally since 2006. He had received an H-4 visa for a year in 2005. He was previously reported explicitly or implicitly in various media outlets as having been born in Atlanta, Georgia, which is incorrect. He was released from ICE custody, and his case is pending; in the meantime, he can not travel abroad.

21 Savage’s maternal grandmother’s surname is Brumant. The name Brumant is common on Dominica.
