(AllHipHop News) Rakim "A$AP Rocky" Mayers is currently a free man. Rocky was released from police custody in Sweden until a judge rules in his assault trial on August 14. He pleaded not guilty in the case.
The Harlem-bred rap star flew back to the United States on Saturday and then headed out to California for Kanye West's Sunday Service event. Rocky was seen in photos with Ye as well as videos with former girlfriend Kendall Jenner and fellow A$AP Mob member A$AP Ferg.
West, and his wife Kim Kardashian, were said to be involved with informing Donald Trump about Rocky's legal situation in Europe. Trump publicly backed the 30-year-old rhymer during his ordeal overseas, but there are mixed reports about how much the President actually assisted A$AP Rocky.
According to reports, Special Presidential Envoy for Hostage Affairs Robert O’Brien warned Sweden of possible "negative consequences to the U.S.-Swedish bilateral relationship" if Rocky was not released from jail. Swedish prosecutor Petra Lundh supposedly defended the independence of Swedish courts and denied O'Brien's requests.
