21 Savage On Being Detained by ICE
New York Times – "21 Savage on ICE Detention, the Grammys and His Uncertain Future"
Q: I’m sure you were spending a lot of time in your head.
A: I could have made myself go crazy. I think they really try to break you. It’s like we gonna put you in jail and we gonna make you fight your case the slowest you can fight it so that you just want to go home. Nobody want to sit in jail, especially if they don’t have the money to fight it and they ain’t been to court in three months.
Q: What do you think has happened in your life that gave you a different perspective?
A: It was what was at stake. It’s like, I got three kids, my mama, everything that I know is here in Atlanta. I’m not leaving Atlanta without a fight. We gon’ fight all the way till the last day even if that mean I sit in jail for 10 years.
