American rapper A$AP Rocky thanks his fans and everyone as he regains his freedom from a Swedish jail after a ruling was reached on his trial on Friday.
The rapper who could not believe his sufferings in the hands of Swedish Police and the Government in general, said he has learnt alot from it, and appreciate all those that worked underground to see that him and his friends were released from jail.
This was his first message on social media after he was released a few hours ago. He said:
“THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART TO ALL OF MY FANS, FRIENDS AND ANYONE ACROSS THE GLOBE WHO SUPPORTED ME DURING THESE LAST FEW WEEKS I CANT BEGIN TO DESCRIBE HOW GRATEFUL I AM FOR ALL OF YOU THIS HAS BEEN A VERY DIFFICULT AND HUMBLING EXPERIENCE I WANT TO THANK THE COURT FOR ALLOWING ME BLADI AND THOTO TO RETURN TO OUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS THANKS AGAIN FOR ALL OF THE LOVE AND SUPPORT.
A$AP Rocky’s case generated worldwide condemnation, especially from the entertainment industry, and it also nearly got the United States and Sweden into a diplomatic row, when President Trump tried to intervene, but his request was turned down. But on Friday when President Trump broke the news that the rapper was going to be released and returned home to the United States, rumour went around that Trump has finally gotten his wish.
The rapper on Friday, saw the Judge handling his case announced that he can be released until a verdict is handed down on August 14. But he does not have to remain in Sweden until then.
According to local reports, the audience cheered as the decision was handed down and A$AP and the other defendants hugged each other upon hearing the news.
A$AP’s mom, Renee Black, was quoted as saying, “There is a God.”
This was Trump’s tweet, “A$AP Rocky released from prison and on his way home to the United States from Sweden. It was a Rocky Week, get home ASAP A$AP!”
During closing arguments on Friday, Swedish prosecutors asked for A$AP Rocky to serve six months behind bars for his role in a June brawl that took place in Stockholm.
Daniel Suneson argued that A$AP should be sentenced harsher than the other defendants. Suneson said, “I don’t think anything other than jail is possible.”
He also believed, during the course of the three-day trial, that he disproved A$AP’s assertion that he acted in self-defense.
“It cannot have been self-defense,” he argued, “as they were five against two.”
Earlier in the day, a woman testified that she did not actually see A$AP Rocky hit the alleged victim with a bottle, which differs from the account she initially told police.
The woman who testified anonymously via video link said she was eating with a friend when she spotted A$AP and his entourage outside. She said she and her friend rushed outside to get a photo with him but by that point, the fight with the alleged victim had already begun.
…fans are happy he is back, and if anything, he definitely will never go back to Sweden at least for now …
