After weeks of going back and forth with Sweden officials to prove his innocence, A$AP Rocky, along with his loved ones, and fans can now receive some type of closure in his assault case. The rapper just received word that a verdict has been reached…
About a month ago, our sister site reported that A$AP Rocky and his crew beat a guy down in Sweden. According to a video obtained by TMZ, the “L$D” rapper was having an intense conversation with a group of guys outside of Max Restaurant in Stockholm. Things quickly turned left when the scene cuts to Rocky grabbing a guy by his shirt and tossing him across the street.
Days later, Rocky was arrested in Sweden for the street brawl and facing aggravated assault charges. Although Rocky and his team weren’t the initial aggressors, the rapper was held for weeks and was looking at up to 6 years in a Swedish prison, if charged.
It was then reported that Rocky was being held in the most disturbing inhumane conditions. According to TMZ, he was sleeping on a yoga mat without blankets in a jail riddled with feces hurled by a mentally-ill prisoner who slammed his head against the wall of the cell next to him. There was no clean water and the food was disgusting.
On Friday (Aug. 2) morning, Rocky and his two friends were released from the Swedish jail. Rocky took to social media to thank everyone who supported him during his time away. He wrote:
