At the time he was hired by Jay-Z on Feb. 6, Spiro said he and the rest of 21 Savage’s team would do their best to make sure 21 would be released from ICE custody. The rapper, who was arrested on suspicion of being an illegal immigrant on Feb. 3, was released exactly one week after the hiring.

For his part, 6ix9ine is still sitting behind bars in federal custody, as he has been since he was arrested on federal racketeering charges on Nov. 18, 2018. While Tekashi initially pleaded not guilty to drugs trafficking, racketeering conspiracy, firearms charges and more, he changed his plea to guilty during a Jan. 23 hearing for the case. As a part of his plea, he agreed to cooperate with the federal government in their attempts to identify his associates charged with similar crimes.
