A $ AP Rocky says his time behind bars in Sweden is exactly why he returns to this country – which seems crazy – but he is on a mission to help the inmates and immigrants he met there.
We picked up the rapper Tuesday night in front of the chic Rick Owens clothing store in NYC and asked why on earth he would return. An AP $ says the month in jail for his attack opened his eyes to the plight of the immigrants. He said he was particularly aware of the support he received as a celebrity, as some prisoners in his vicinity rotted for 10 months or more before visiting a judge.
He has the mission to change this. For starters, A $ AP indicates that it has donated proceeds from its concert on December 11 in Stockholm to an organization for immigration rights called FARR, the Swedish network for refugee aid groups.
As we reported for the first time … Rocky was arrested under inhuman conditions while the prosecutor's office considered whether he should be charged with street brawling for serious assault. The case attracted worldwide attention … and even President Trump and his government became involved. An $ AP was eventually found guilty, but no more time behind bars. Rocky wasted no time, flew out of Sweden, and it seemed like he was there the last time – until Live Nation announced that he would return to Sweden next month.
A $ AP had said the prison had been scary and humiliating on his first appearance in the US after his return from Sweden. Still, he tells us that he does not allow himself to be held back by fear and even plans to visit an area that the police are not going to, just to boost the mood of Swedish immigrants.
There was a topic he did NOT want to touch. even though. We asked about Trump's efforts to free him. To be fair, Rocky would rather play a Swedish prison concert than discuss POTUS!
