A$AP ROCKY SPEAKS ON RECENT ARREST AT FIRST SHOW SINCE BEING RELEASED

 

Released rapper ASAP Rocky has been back on stage for the first time since being freed from a Swedish jail.

The 30-year-old, real name Rakim Mayers, spoke about his arrest at the Real Street Festival in Anaheim on Sunday night.

The US star and two of his entourage pleaded not guilty to assaulting a 19-year-old man in Stockholm in June.

ASAP was detained in the country but had the support of US President Donald Trump and a number of other big-name stars.

He was jailed but then freed on August 2 and addressed his time inside at his first show back.

 

“I just want to say, what I experienced it’s crazy. I’m so happy to be here y’all don’t even understand,” he shouted to the crowd.

“Y’all know how happy I am to be here right now,” Rocky added. “While I was away — hold the mosh pits a minute… this is a sentimental moment!

“That was a scary and humbling experience but god is good.

“People that I don’t even f**king know was reaching out. Hip hop never felt so good man.”

Rocky, appearing with pal Tyler the Creator, added: “This my first performance since I been out.

“When I was locked up we used to play the radio and I heard my brother ASAP Ferg’s song all the way in Sweden. I want to hear that song.”

“Rocky is home!” Tyler shouted at the end of their song together.

He is hoping to be officially cleared on Wednesday.

 

The American says he, Bladimir Corniel and David Rispers were acting in self-defence after a fight that broke out on June 30.

Rocky’s defence lawyer Slobodan Jovicic said the incident was not a pre-meditated group assault but prosecutor Daniel Suneson told the Stockholm District Court the star should be jailed for about six months.

An online petition for the rapper’s release gathered more than 640,000 signatures worldwide.
