21 Savage’s manager, Justin "Meezy" Williams, says the Grammys won’t allow the rapper’s mother to attend the awards show on his behalf tonight. Williams tweeted his frustration hours before the awards show is set to take place.

Savage is nominated for two awards tonight, including Record of the Year for “Rockstar,” his collaboration with Post Malone.

He is currently being held without bond by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). ICE officials claim the United Kingdom-born rapper overstayed his visa.

The FADER has reached out to the Recording Academy for comment.
