Savage has vowed not to leave his adopted hometown of Atlanta, insisting he will “sit in jail to fight to live where I’ve been living my whole life.”
The British national, real name She’yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, was released from jail on February 13 after spending 10 days in confinement after he was arrested in the Georgia capital for overstaying his visa.
And in a new interview with The New York Times, the rapper insisted he won’t leave America without a fight.
Of his thoughts during his detention, Abraham-Joseph explained: “All that just going through your head, like, ‘Damn, I love my house, I ain’t gonna be able to go in my house no more? I ain’t gonna be able to go to my favorite restaurant that I been going to for 20 years straight?’ That’s the most important thing. If you tell me, ‘I’ll give you 20 million to go stay somewhere you ain’t never stayed,’ I’d rather be broke. I’ll sit in jail to fight to live where I’ve been living my whole life
