Jay-Z says the arrest of rapper 21 Savage is "an absolute travesty" and has hired a lawyer to help his fight against deportation.
Atlanta-based rapper 21 Savage, a British citizen, is being held by US officials due to an expired visa.
His real name is Shayaa Bin Abraham-Joseph and he moved to America as a child.
A statement on Jay-Z's Facebook page says Savage "deserves to be reunited with his family immediately".
