A$AP Rocky needs to count his blessings because Sweden is on that a*s!
President Trump’s “favorite rapper” A$AP Rocky has started his trial in Sweden. He pleaded not guilty to the assault.
According to Page Six, the rapper appeared in court in a green T-shirt as his mother, Renee Black, arrived looking “like she was about to burst into tears,” Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet reported.
Prosecutors in Stockholm told the court that A$AP Rocky and two other men believed to be part of his entourage “deliberately, together and in agreement” attacked the alleged victim.
His case caused a minor uproar when Trump got involved.
Give A$AP Rocky his FREEDOM. We do so much for Sweden but it doesn’t seem to work the other way around. Sweden should focus on its real crime problem! #FreeRocky

He then called Sweden’s “very talented” prime minister, Stefan Löfven, to plead his case.
Löfven told the New York Times that “in Sweden, everyone is equal before the law.”
A$AP Rocky faces up to two years in prison but has always stayed true to his word.
He sticks to that he was provoked and acted in self-defense.
Prosecutors think that he and his entourage beat and kicked Jafari while he was on the ground and that he was hit with a bottle.
However, the rapper’s lawyer told Swedish public broadcaster that he has evidence that a bottle was not used.
Also, and that the violence was “within the limits of the law.”
Aww poor A$AP Rocky! We can see from an American standpoint A$AP Rocky is completely innocent. We also need to see it from the Swedish standpoint and see how things there are so much different.
One thing we can all agree on is that A$AP should have never done what he did. Especially if it is a physical altercation.
