Thats the biggest fear of the British-born rapper, whos facing deportation charges for the third time since he came to America 16 years ago.
Officials claim hes here illegally but Rick says hes been here so long he should be allowed to stay. Hes hoping to get his fans behind the cause by holding a protest rally on Tuesday (Oct. 24).
Says Rick: I think Ive contributed to society. I dont want any trouble, I just want to live my life.
He expects to get public support for his cause from other immigrants in America facing similar situations and from artists who have been inspired by his music.
He hopes Snoop Dogg, who used Ricks rap in his song, La-di-da-di will be one of his supporters.
Rick adds, We are all the same, and nobody should be bullied.
