A$AP Rocky still imprisoned in harsh circumstances

2 min read

A$AP Rocky has been imprisoned in a Swedish jail for nearly a week now and he’s been detained in some harsh circumstances.

Sources with direct knowledge of 30-year-old’s situation that he has been sleeping on a mat with no blankets. It has also been reported that the rapper’s neighboring prisoner suffers from mental illness, who bangs his head on a wall and throws feces around that does not get cleaned up.

On top of the “inhumane” living conditions in the facility, which the source said is “disease-ridden,” the water and the food is not clean and neither edible. A$AP apparently only ate an apple a day for the first five days of being imprisoned.

Knowledge of the New York native’s dilemma has led artists like Tyler, The Creator to vow to skip Sweden on any future tours.

“No more Sweden for me, ever,” the artist proclaimed in a tweet on Monday in protest of A$AP’s arrest, which fellow American rapper Schoolboy Q agreed.


A$AP Rocky is currently being detained in a Swedish jail while prosecutors determine if they will charge him for serious beating in connection to a street fight he engaged in on June 30.

Although the video of the incident shows that the rapper trying to be the negotiator, he was under arrest after voluntarily going to the police.

The publication stated that although Swedish authorities are normally allowed to only keep people for three days but they have asked a judge to allow them to hold A$AP and members of his team for two weeks.

What happens next for A$AP Rocky remains unclear. On Monday, the rapper, whose real name is Rakim Mayers, unsuccessfully appealed his custody to Sweden’s highest court.

“Unfortunately the Supreme Court rejected our appeal today so Rakim is still detained,” Rocky’s lawyer told Pitchfork in an email. “Now we continue to work with our defense plans.”
