Harlem rapper A$AP Rocky is headed home to await an assault verdict after weeks in a Swedish jail, in a case that attracted worldwide attention and support from celebrities — including the president of the United States.
“A$AP Rocky released from prison and on his way home to the United States from Sweden,” President Trump tweeted moments after Swedish officials announced that the rapper and other suspects would be freed until Aug. 14, when the verdict will be announced. “It was a Rocky Week,” Trump wrote. “Get home ASAP A$AP!”
Prosecutors are recommending six months in jail for ASAP Rocky, after wrapping up a highly-publicized assault trial for the embattled performer.
