The weird part about the release was that it stated that prosecutors wanted to keep Rocky, born Rakim Meyers, in jail until next Thursday as they continue to investigate what happened in the street brawl that landed him in jail.

One of those African-American supporters is rapper and Trump loyalist Kanye West, who urged his wife, Kim Kardashian, to call White House advisers Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, according to TMZ. But by Friday morning, it's now clear with this ruling that a release at this point just isn't in the cards... at least, not for seven more days. TMZ also reports that the original version of the Swedish prosecutors' press release said ASAP Rocky would be indicted, but a revised version released shortly after only said that more time is needed to investigate. "When I say African American, I think I can really say from everybody in this country because we're all one".

President Donald Trump is weighing in on the detention of A$AP Rocky in Sweden following an alleged altercation involving the rapper. Despite footage showing him attacking the man, Rocky said he acted in self-defense.

The first video the artist shared to his social media platform showed what appeared to be the beginning of the street incident that later led to the arrests.

"Any time President Trump gets involved in anything, it brings a level of attention" to an issue that can not be matched by those who "don't have that cache or reach", Lanier said.

Many artists such as Sheck Wes, Tyga, Travis Scott, Cardi B and more have spoken out in support A$AP Rocky.

A petition calling for his release has also garnered half a million signatures. It is not a fair process, ' the congressman earlier said in a statement to The Associated Press. "Your commitment to justice reform is so appreciated", she added, in reference to her meeting with the president to discuss prison reform past year.

Earlier this week, Sweden's top prosecutor Petra Lundh said, "The fact that a suspect or a plaintiff is known is no reason for the person to receive a special treatment". "I leave it to the general public to make their own conclusion". The goal of Risch's visit was not known.
