21 Savage might still be detained by ICE at the Irwin County Detention Centre, but his presence was still felt at this year’s Grammys.

21’s co-manager Kei Henderson revealed that she reached out to several artists in hope that they would perform his verse on the hit song “Rockstar”. No details on who Henderson reached out to, but unfortunately the plan didn’t work out and Post Malone ended up performing the track alone. Some of her statements were also seemingly misconstrued. See the tweets below.

In support of the hip-hop artist however, Malone wore a black T-shirt with 21 Savage’s name printed on the front. Ludwig Göransson, a co-writer and co-producer of the single “This is America” also was in support of 21 Savage, mentioning him during Childish Gambino‘s award acceptance speech.

In other news, Nicki Minaj dropped out of the BET Show after a Cardi B tweet.
