(AllHipHop News) Even though Al Sharpton, Kim Kardashian, and other activists are working to free A$AP Rocky from jail in Sweden, reports suggest the Harlem-raised rapper may be held for another week. The prosecution is asking a judge for Rocky to remain in custody until July 25.
"We have worked intensively with the investigation and need more time, until Thursday next week in order to complete the preliminary investigation," stated prosecutor Daniel Suneson.
Rakim "A$AP Rocky" Mayers was arrested for suspected assault after video footage surfaced of him engaged in a violent confrontation with other men. The 30-year-old American remains in pre-trial detention. One of the alleged victims is also being investigated.
Mayers' legal team claim their client was acting in self-defense when he was seen brawling with other individuals on a Stockholm street. Numerous celebrities have spoken out in support of the #FreeRocky and #JusticeForRocky movement.
