In breaking news, it’s been confirmed that A$AP Rocky has just been released from a Swedish jail – after a month of incarceration.
But there’s more to the story.
Per TMZ, the judge presiding over the controversial trial has let the rapper go ahead of the verdict in his assault case.
The decision was met with elation from those present at the hearing, and for understandable reason.
Rocky has been in a cell, alongside two of his team, since late June after a clash with Swedish nationals, who he asserts were targeting/harassing him. Per the rapper, the brawl was nothing more than self-defence.
Interestingly, after initially being deemed a flight risk from Prosecutors, the judge has granted A$AP and his crew freedom to leave the country ahead of the verdict – which is expected for August 14th.
It’s been confirmed that he’s already enroute back to the US, and Donald Trump (who has actually been attempting to expedite his release) is already rejoicing on Twitter.
Suffice to say, A$AP looks like he’ll be protected (and likely a free man) whichever way the verdict goes.
