A$AP Rocky Found Guilty Of Assault In Sweden | Music News

 

A$AP Rocky has been convicted of assault after a Stockholm street brawl. On June 30, he and his two bodyguards attacked a 19-year old Mustafa Jari while walking through the Swedish capital.

 

The US rapper has received a conditional sentence, which means he won’t be imprisoned in Sweden unless he commits a similar defence in the country. The artist is also obliged to pay a $1,300 fine.

 

Even though A$AP Rocky maintained he acted in self-defence, Stockholm District Court, stated that he and his two friends “were not in a situation” that justified the use of violence in self-defence and that they “assaulted the victim by hitting and kicking him”.

 

A$AP Rocky, whose real name is Rakim Mayers, arrived in the US earlier this month after having been detained in Sweden since 3 July. The rapper spent almost a month behind the bars and was freed after numerous calls for his release.

 

The issue sparked a diplomatic friction between Sweden and the US earlier this summer, as Donald Trump published a series of tweets demanding the artist’s release. In one of them he wrote: “Give A$AP Rocky his FREEDOM. We do so much for Sweden but it doesn’t seem to work the other way around”.
