J.Cole and 21 Savage‘s friendship seemed to be an unlikely combination, but after watching their relationship grow since the creation of “A Lot” for Savage’s I Am > I Was, it is no surprise that Cole has offered his friend kind words in his time of need.
“Let the man be with and provide for his kids,” he wrote on Twitter. Cole shared on “A Lot” that he met the 26-year-old’s children while recording his track for the song.
“I drove back home, six-hour drive, six-and-a-half. Before I left I stopped by to see my n***a 21 in the studio. He had two of his kids with him right in the studio, that’s when I knew. You a stand up n***a, I love seein’ shit like that.”
Praying for 21 savage let that man be with and provide for his kids.

21 Savage is currently facing deportation after being detained by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in Atlanta on Sunday (Feb. 3). There is speculation that Savage’s application for a permanent visa led to him being detained by the governmental entity.
