The US State Department has weighed in on the treatment of A$AP Rocky by Swedish authorities after the rapper was arrested in Stockholm for an alleged attack that took place late last month, a report said.
Secretary Mike Pompeo has been briefed about the detainment of A$AP Rocky — real name Rakim Mayers — as the “A$AP Forever” rapper is being held in a Swedish prison pending charges, according to Politico.
“There are certainly some facts about the arrest and detention that raise concerns,” a State Department spokesperson said.
A$AP Rocky and his crew were attacked and harassed by aggressive migrants in Stockholm, and were arrested for standing up for themselves.
