A petition has been launched by A$AP Mob in an attempt to get A$AP Rocky freed from a “horrific” jail in Sweden.
The Swedish courts ordered that A$AP be held in the jail for two weeks after police arrested him on June 30 on an assault charge in Stockholm.
Rocky and his team were reportedly involved in an incident with two men, who allegedly “followed, harassed and physically assaulted them.”
The Incident Which Led To Jail Time
Following the incident, Rocky posted a video on Instagram to share what had happened before he and his team went to the police to explain the situation. He was arrested thereafter.
The rapper is now awaiting trial and, if convicted, could face up to 6 years in prison as a result. A$AP’s defence attorney Henrick Osson Lilja said that the ruling would be appealed because Rocky and his team were attacked and responded in self-defence.
The petition states:
“The conditions of the facility are horrific. Some of the inhumane conditions Rocky and his colleagues are facing at the Stockholm Detention Center include 24/7 solitary confinement, restriction of amenities for the most basic of human functions, access to palatable and life sustaining food as well as unsanitary conditions.”
Shows Cancelled Due To Arrest
A$AP Ferg took to Instagram to say that Rocky is being held with no access to phone calls or visitation rights. Due to the arrest, A$AP Rocky had to cancel shows in Norway, Poland and London, where he was due to headline Wireless.
