The Atlanta Journal-Constitution first reported that 21 Savage, whose real name is Sha Yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, was taken into custody by ICE early Sunday morning. According to an unnamed source, both rappers were arrested following a traffic stop during which two additional people were taken into custody by DeKalb police.

Abraham-Joseph was held on allegations that he is actually from the United Kingdom and has been living in the U.S. illegally since 2006.

DeKalb police have not released the details of Thomas’ arrest or the names of the two other suspects. Bond has not been set for Thomas, DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Cynthia Williams told the AJC.

Thomas has collaborated heavily with Abraham-Joseph. The duo are reportedly cousins.

But DJ BJ, who Complex reported has worked closely with both rappers, is disputing reports that they were in the same car and arrested together.

“Savage and Nudy won’t (sic) even in the same car. Don't let media lie to y'all,” he tweeted

BJ also refuted a report that the Atlanta Police Department was behind the initial arrest of the two.

According to a post on Thomas’ Instagram page, he was part of a concert near Pine Lake, Georgia, the night of his arrest. He is known for his “Slimeball” mixtapes and his collaborations with fellow Georgia rappers like Offset and Lil Yachty.
