“I ain’t know what a visa was,” he reveals within the interview with Good Morning America.
“I was seven when I first came here. I knew I wasn’t born here but I didn’t know what that means as far as how I transitioned into an adult,” he reveals within the interview beneath. “I wasn’t hiding it. But I didn’t want to get deported so I wasn’t just finna be like, ‘Hey, by the way, I wasn’t born here.’”
The rapper recounts getting arrested. He mentioned he was driving after which abruptly he simply noticed “guns and blue lights.” He was put at the back of the automobile and brought away. He says the police didn’t say a lot on the time of the arrest apart from — “We got Savage.”
