Jay Z Committed To Helping 21 Savage and His Deportation Battles... 

A plethora of artists, including Cardi B, Meek Mill, and Offset, have publicly expressed their support of 21 Savage. Jay-Z, however, has gone a step further, hiring top New York-based immigration lawyer Alex Spiro to take the case.  

JAYZ is now the richest musician in the country... According to the Forbes, JAY-Z only follows behind George Lucas, Steven Spielberg, Oprah Winfrey and Michael Jordan with his net worth of $900 million.Meghan. Jay-Z has put his money where his mouth is also his heart. 

Hired Attorney Spiro, goes on to state..."What we have here is someone who overstayed their visa with an application pending for four years - not a convicted criminal that needs to be detained and removed but, by all accounts a wonderful person, father, and entertainer who has a marijuana offence which was vacated and sealed," said Spiro.

Here we have a contributing member of society, a successful artist nominated for two Grammys this year, a man who pays far more in taxes than his deadbeat detractors. We have a man who in his 19 years in the US has a single charge (subsequently removed from his record) for the possession of a common and now mostly legal substance―a charge that stems from racism in the first place. Further, w ord on the street is that 6ix9ine snitched on 21 Savage get a plea deal on his RICO charges.

There are many family riped apart with the threat of deportation and by no means are we saying saying that hip hop star situation is more important than others but if it quacks like a duck, walk like a duck and looks like a duck what would you call it?

Leave us your comments/thoughts here and we will post them all:   https://411hotwire.com/story-editorial-submission

UPDATE:   After being held and released by ICE, 21 Savage spoke out, “I don’t feel that the policy is broken, I feel that the way they enforce the policy is broken,” 21 Savage said about the U.S. immigration policy.


21 Savage, Demi LaVato and Bebe Rexha Beef...

Demi LaVato has since deactivate her Twitter account and apologized for her insesitive tweet...so for all those who do know the entire story here is the 411... On Sunday, Lovato sparked controversy during the 2019 Super Bowl over her tweet about 21 Savage, née Sha Yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, who was arrested on Sunday morning by ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) for reportedly overstaying his visa. 21 Savage, who was reportedly born on the island of Dominica, which was a British colony, faces a possibility of deportation.   As news of his arrest flooded social media on Sunday, Lovato tweeted, "So far 21 savage memes have been my favorite part of the Super Bowl."

It wasn't long ago that "Well-Wishers" were keeping Demi in their prayers after her near death overdose on illicit drugs.  During that time if anyone were to say anything improper about her demons and long battle with drugs the entire world would have vaporized that person/persons.  Fast forward to 21 Savage deportation situation. It's a situation that has his family, friends and fans in shock, pain and disbelief of the seriousness of his legal deportation battles. To be insensitive rather he is right or wrong, I ask is it right because he is a male?  Rapper?  African-British?

Now Bebe Rexha is defending or co-signing for Demi...when many celebrities such as Tara Banks and another well known fashion designer came to your aide to style her for the Grammies when no other fashion designer was willing to created a size to fit ...  which was on the boarder of body shaming.  Were you not "pissed" as you say for being body shamed Bebe (read the article we published)? People I ask...Should not there had been some undertanding of Demi's, Bebe's and 21 Savage's plight without any mocking, memes, or commericials being created regarding their situation?

This is what Bebe wrote defending Demi...
"To all the people who who talked shit to Demi you’re FUCKIN DISGUSTING. Attacking someone that is 6 months sober about her personal issues with drugs and mental health over a tweet is LOW." 

Lovato's tweet received immediate criticism, with Migos' Offsetseemingly subtweeting the "Skyscraper" singer...
"ALL THE MEMES AND S--T AINT FUNNY WHEN SOMEBODY GOING THROUGH SOME," the rapper wrote. "PRAYING FOR MY DAWG AINT S--T FUNNY HIS FANILY [sic] DEPENDING ON HIM."


@TalibKweli 
So far Demi Lavato deleting her twitter after being rightfully dragged for making fun of 21 Savage has been my favorite part of the Super Bowl.

UPDATE:  
21 Savage’s ICE arrest continue to unfold, the Atlanta-based rapper’s lawyer is speaking out. According to the BBC, attorney Charles Kuck is adamant his client never hid his immigration status.
In a statement, Kuck claims the platinum-selling artist’s arrest was “based upon incorrect information about prior criminal charges.” In 2014, 21 Savage — real name Sha Yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph — was convicted of drug-related charges, although that conviction was reportedly expunged. 
Kuck says his client was in the process of obtaining a U visa so he could legally stay in the United States. In 2013, 21 Savage was shot six times on his 21st birthday by a rival gang member in an attempted robbery. The ambush took the life of his little brother, Johnny “Tay-Man” Abraham-Joseph.

BEBE REXHA, ONE OF POP MUSIC RISING STARS SLAYS AT THE 2019 GRAMMY SLAYS...

Just a few weeks agao Bebe Rexha, took it to the media sounding off against Hollywood's top designers and how they are refusing to dress her for the Grammy Awards.  They are saying the do not have samples in her size. Bebe is a size 6/8 which most of American women are or even a larger size which is normal for everyone but Hollywood.  This is what the singer had to say,

"Im sorry, I had to get this off my chest. If you don’t like my fashion style or my music that’s one thing. But don’t say you can’t dress someone that isn’t a runway size. We are beautiful any size! Small or large! Anddddd My size 8 ass is still going to the Grammys. #LOVEYOURBODY'"

This struck an uneasy cord with Top Model, Tara Banks.  She replied to the popstar,


"The day I met You n Toronto, I knew U were xtra special. R impromptu posing lesson backstage was MAJOR. You stuck that leg & hip out & Tooched & Smized at the same time. Those designers that don’t wanna dress U are DUMB. U my dear @BebeRexha are pure genius...H2T - head to toe!"


Lastly, one of her fans sending a message of encouragment, she said...


​​"Wow I must be obese in a size 16!!! SMH!! Size 8... Honey I haven’t seen a size 8 since 6th grade! Size 8 SMH crazy... Hollywood/Grammys that’s crazy"


This is what BeBe had to say a day after the 2019 Grammy:  

"Everyone kept telling me how many records Meant To Be has broken and how it deserved an award. But We lost a CMA, Billboard, Vma, Grammy. Zilch. And then I thought of what @Drake said last night. “You’ve already won if you have people singing your songs word for word”

However, one of the top designers in hollywood today came to her rescue and she slayed in her fabulous red dress.  What is your opinion?  Did she slay or nay and do you think Hollywood's top designers for the award shows are body shaming and keeping it in the forefront of American society?  What do you think should be done about it?  Send in your comments...

PRESIDENT TRUMP ANNOUNCES HIS BID FOR RE-ELECTION 2020

Now that the federal government has temporarily re-open its doors for business President Trump, has announced his bid for re-election in the 2020 PRESIDENTIAL RACE.  This is what PRESIDENT TRUMP recently announced regarding his re-election, 

"Thank you to the Republican National Committee, (the RNC), who voted UNANIMOUSLY yesterday to support me in the upcoming 2020 Election. Considering that we have done more than any Administration in the first two years, this should be easy. More great things now in the works!"
What are your thoughts on that statement?  Do think he did more than any President in recent memory in his first two years?  Do you think he delivered on his promises he made during is Presidential Campaign?  If so why...if not, why?

President Trump and the Democratic Party will resume talks regarding the board wall in mid February.  The President hasn't tone down his rhetoric regarding the boarder wall being a "National Security"  must have.  This is what the President recently reported,

“We absolutely need a physical barrier or Wall, whatever you want to call it. The President yesterday laid all that out. We need to do it all, including the Wall. I provided the same information to the previous administration, & it was ignored.” Mark Morgan, Border Chief for “O”! 'We have turned away, at great expense, two major Caravans, but a big one has now formed and is coming. At least 8000 people! If we had a powerful Wall, they wouldn’t even try to make the long and dangerous journey. Build the Wall and Crime will Fall!
Do you think the reports are accurate and if so who's reporting on these so called caravans?  Who's driving these illegal caravans?

The seventh official has just been indicted by the FBI regard the Russia Collusion in which the President and his team announced he had no prior knowledge of their illegal acts and still continues to take any responsibility on anything close to it.  How many officials have to get arrested before the old saying..."birds of a feather flock together"  rings the bell of truth and if so do we want to keep a person with a "mafia mentality" in the White House?  What are your thoughts and comments... leave them below...

UPDATED:  Congress is set to resolve its clattering brawl with President Donald Trump in uncommonly bipartisan fashion as lawmakers prepare to pass a border security compromise providing a mere sliver of the billions he’s demanded for a wall with Mexico and averting a rekindled government shutdown this weekend.

Netflix has no plans to cut 'Bird Box' scene despite outcry...

Netflix’s post-apocalyptic survival film “Bird Box” is drawing criticism for using footage of a real fiery train disaster but the streaming giant has no plans to remove it.  We ask for all the viewers...should they? The footage concerns a 2013 tragedy in the Quebec town of Lac-Megantic when an unattended train carrying crude oil rolled down an incline, came off the tracks and exploded into a massive ball of fire, killing 47 people. Netflix licensed the footage of the disaster from the stock image vendor Pond 5 and used it in “Bird Box” in an early TV news montage to set up its horrific premise. The Sandra Bullock-led thriller is about monstrous entities that compel any human who sees them to quickly try to kill themselves. To survive, they don blindfolds. 

The mayor of Lac-Megantic, Julie Morin, has decried the use of the footage in an interview with The Canadian Press, calling it “a lack of respect.” Criticism has also been leveled by Canadians on Twitter, who argue that the footage may trigger feelings of PTSD and additional victimization.
But the Lac-Megantic mayor and a Netflix representative talked Thursday and Morin said the conversation was productive. “They’ve committed to reflecting with their partners on the use of these images so that the situation does not repeat itself. We also felt they were sensitive to our citizens’ recovery. I’m satisfied with this exchange,” Morin said in a statement. It’s not the first time “Bird Box” has caused an outcry. YouTube is cracking down on a wave of users committing so-called “Bird Box Challenges” — like driving a car while blindfolded. ___
