President Donald Trump on Friday announced that A$AP Rocky, US rapper, is on his way home after his release from prison in Sweden. 

It was gathered that the talented rapper was released from jail pending a verdict in the high-profile assault case against him in Sweden.

Trump, who took interest in his case, to the extent of reaching out to Stefan Löfven, Sweden’s prime minister, visited his Twitter page to celebrate the rapper’s return to the U.S.

Sweden declines Trump’s request to free ASAP Rocky

A$AP Rocky, whose name is Rakim Mayers, has been in custody since July 3 along with two members of his entourage.

“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!” Trump wrote.

Last week, he had fired a barrage of angry tweets at the Swedish government, demanding for the rapper’s immediate release.

Trump also guaranteed that Rocky was not a flight risk and would wait out his trial date.

Rocky, a platinum-selling, Grammy-nominated artist whose real name is Rakim Mayers, was arrested in Stockholm alongside an entourage of two men after he was involved in a fight that got captured on camera on June 30.

The rapper had earlier claimed he acted in self-defense on suspicion of being followed. He was, however, remanded in prison since July 3, as investigations into the case continued.

He was temporarily released on Friday until a verdict is announced on August 14.
