His team believes this was was a politically motivated strategy to prevent them from protesting 21 Savage’s detainment. Rumor has it that the Grammy officials caught wind that there would be mention of the rapper’s situation. His family, team and fellow artists were reportedly planning to walk to record carpet with documented immigrants to show support for 21. His team believes the Grammys heard of these plans and then strategically denied them access to the Red Carpet to avoid a scene.

Sources close to the Grammys said that for security reasons, the Grammy’s policy is to refrain from transferring tickets. His mother was offered two tickets from a “different allotment.”
