21 Savage, Grammy-nominated rapper who told of his tough upbringing in Atlanta, is actually British

But he has the crappy tattoos!

A Grammy-nominated rapper who built up an image of being brought up surrounded by drugs and guns on the mean streets of Atlanta is actually British, it emerged after he was detained by US immigration officers.

Rapper 21 Savage, who has long said he is from the US state of Georgia, was detained on Sunday and officials say he is from the UK and overstayed his American visa.

Not sure immigration fraud qualifies as “Gangsta” street-cred.
