Manager says A$AP Rocky is being held at 'inhumane' Swedish prison

Manager says A$AP Rocky is being held at 'inhumane' Swedish prison

(The feces is reportedly not cleaned up.) The source added, the water "is not clean and the food is not edible".

Rocky's cell is reportedly next to another inmate apparently suffering severe mental health issues.

In their initial ruling, the judge said that Meyers is a flight risk and will likely leave the country if released.

Whether or not this sways Swedish authorities to give A$AP Rocky his freedom until he gets his day in court remains to be seen. Their opponents had complained that one of Rocky's companions broke their headphones.

The first video the artist shared to his social media platform showed what appeared to be the beginning of the street incident that later led to the arrests. They ask the two young men to stop following them several times but the young men keep following them even after English-speaking individuals intervene and try to dissuade them. Other images showed how one of the young men was later thrown to the ground and beaten. The men were asking Rocky to buy them new headphones, and they began to follow him and threaten to call the police if he didn't pay them for their damaged property. The #JusticeForRocky petition details Rocky's legal plight in Sweden following a physical altercation he and his crew had with a local man on June 30.

A$AP Rocky previously detailed the events leading up to the arrest to his 10.2 million Instagram followers.

"Upon being detained, Rocky was denied his request to counsel which is in violation of Article 36 of the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations, to which Sweden is a signatory", writes Infinite. We take seriously our responsibility to assist USA citizens overseas and are actively monitoring the situation. Meanwhile, the rapper has missed multiple scheduled performances across Europe.

If convicted, Rocky faces a sentence of up to six years.

A host of American rappers have declared they won't be visiting Sweden anytime soon after A$AP Rocky's arrest.
