Rapper 21 Savage is cleared to travel legally outside the United States and plans to perform for the first time in his native London.

On Friday, Savage’s lawyer, Charles Kuck, said the 30-year-old had officially become a permanent U.S. citizen and could travel overseas.

“She’yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph followed all applicable Immigration laws since his initial detention by ICE. His immigration court proceedings have now been terminated and he is a lawful resident of the United States with the freedom to travel internationally,” Kuck said in a statement obtained by Complex.

The “Rich Flex” artist later posted an emotional video on his Instagram account, featuring childhood clips as he announced his return to the place he called home.

Savage then traveled to Toronto for two remaining It’s All a Blur Tour shows at the Scotiabank Arena. However, he was denied border entry and couldn’t attend the concert Friday night.

According to Billboard, Savage made his first international appearance the following night as Drake welcomed his tourmate on stage. The Toronto native also teased the news about the U.K. rapper’s status in his song “8 AM Charlotte,” confirming he officially had his green card.

“Savage got a green card straight out of the consulate / Where I go, you go, brother; we Yugoslavian,” Drizzy raps in the verse.

In August, Blavity reported Savage revealed his plans to return to London in the song “By Chance” with British rapper Giggs. He made the subtle announcement following his battle with immigration in 2019.

His legal woes began after U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement arrested him for staying in the country after his green card had expired in 2006. The “Bank Account” artist faced deportation as the process unfolded.

Rappers Meek Mill and Jay-Z rallied behind Savage after his detainment in Atlanta. Since then, multiple felony charges against him were dropped, per Blavity.
