When 21 Savage was arrested by ICE in 2019 for overstaying his Visa, Jay-Z swooped in to help.

It was revealed at the time that Savage was really born in the UK, not the U.S. and came to the States when he was 7.

He spoke about Jay assisting him during an interview with Math Hoffa.  The "A lot" rapper said that Meek Mill helped him out as well. [Jump to the 4:41-mark]

“They detained me ’cause they said I had felony conviction, but the felony conviction got dismissed," Savage explained. "And I called Meek while I was in jail and told Meek, ‘Bro, I just got locked up.’ He called Jay-Z, and Jay-Z put a lawyer on my case ... [Jay-Z] ain’t just doing that sh*t for anybody."

Savage has spoken about his appreciation for Jay in the past as well, and one time called him the GOAT.

"Greatest to ever do it," he wrote then. "Not up for debate."
