Elevate. Make Money. Give Back.

21 Savage recently tweeted those words and it looks like he’s doing just that. The Atlanta rapper recently donated to a nonprofit organization to help that detained immigrants have access legal counsel. This cause is surely near and dear to his heart since he has been battling his own case with ICE. Earlier this year 21 was arrested over Super Bowl weekend after it was revealed that he was born in the U.K., and although he’s lived in the U.S. for the majority of his life, he was here on an expired visa.

In light of all Savage has been though, he decided to donate $25K to Southern Poverty Law Center, the same nonprofit organization that aided him during his own detainment. Their mission it to work towards fighting hate and bigotry through seeking justice for undocumented immigrants.

Managing partner of Kuck Baxter LLC, Charles H. Kuck, said in a statement, “Creating oppressively adverse conditions of detention, like those in Irwin County, Georgia, far away from family and legal counsel, causes despair and hopelessness, and forces these men and women to give up on their immigration claims. The SPLC, through its Southeast Immigrant Freedom Initiative (SIFI) stands at the front line of this fight and supporting this effort lets all Americans know that the Constitution which protects the least of us, protects all of us.” Yasss we love this! In other Savage news, the rapper also recently graced the cover of Paper Magazine ayeee!
