(AllHipHop News) Some people were shocked to learn A$AP Rocky is returning to Sweden for a concert after being convicted of assault there earlier this year. Besides performing, Rocky offered another explanation for why he is traveling back to the European nation.
"When I was in Sweden I met so many people like myself," the man born Rakim Mayers told a TMZ cameraman. "All of those immigrants didn't really have the kind of support that they need. Me, being a celebrity, I had worldwide coverage. We had the American embassy."
He continued, "These people come from countries that they don't have help. Sweden - they take in immigrants. I just felt like I wanted to give back... We're donating with the immigration service called FARR that helps a lot of immigrants get the right kind of help that they need."
Rocky expressed he is not concerned about potentially being caught up in another violent case while in Sweden. The 31-year-old American also avoided answering a question about whether he ever spoke to President Donald Trump about the situation.
The rapper was detained in Stockholm for more than a month before he was found guilty and given a suspended sentence. Mayers and two co-defendants claimed self-defense against the alleged victim for the street fight that took place on June 30.
