Rapper ASAP Rocky says his time spent in jail in Sweden was a “humbling experience” after he was arrested for allegedly being involved in a fight.
As reported by The Sauce, the 30-year-old rapper was arrested in Stockholm, Sweden, in July for allegedly being involved in a fight prior to a music festival, and after being released earlier this month, he has said the experience was “scary”, but he’s thankful for all the support from his fans.

Speaking as he took to the stage at the 92.3 Real Street Festival at the Honda Centre in Anaheim, California, on Sunday (11.08.19) – which was his first performance since leaving Sweden – he said: “I’m so happy to be here right now. That was a scary, humbling experience, but I’m here right now. God is good. You know what I’m saying? People who wouldn’t even f**k with me felt sympathy and sympathetic for my situation. People was praying for me. That uplifted me when my spirits was low. I can’t thank y’all enough. That was crazy. Thank you so much.”
And before leaving the stage, the ‘Praise the Lord’ hitmaker sent his thanks to the crowd once again. He added: “I know y’all was praying for me. Imma need y’all to keep praying for me. Hopefully, with God’s will, I’m not guilty and s**t.”
As reported by The Sauce, the ‘Fuckin Problems’ rapper pleaded not guilty to assault charges in a Swedish court on Tuesday (30.07.19) on the first day of a trial facing up to two years in prison. Rapper Kanye West and President Trump appealed for ASAP Rocky’s release. The US Special Presidential Envoy for Hostage Affairs, Robert O’Brien, was in court to “support the members of the family and the American citizens.”
Courts in Stockholm are set to reach a verdict on the rapper’s case on Wednesday (14.08.19), almost two weeks after he was released and allowed to travel back to the US on August 2nd 2019.
