ASAP Rocky should be freed immediately by Sweden and it’s judicial system. The rapper has been held in court for about a month at this point. This is a mockery of justice as even the 2 young thugs who approached and harassed his crew are free. This comes even after they two assailants are proven to have attacked the rapper’s entourage with a pair of industrial plastic headphones, which cracked the head of the Hip-Hop star’s bodyguard.
Rapper Has Every Reason To Be Defensive In Europe
“At this point we are really scared. I saw my security guard being cut, bleeding. We didn’t know what to expect with these strangers — I’m not from Sweden, so it was really scary,” the rapper said.
This is a rare admission from any rapper, as Hip-Hop stars are seen as ‘less cool’ when a vulnerability is exposed. A$AP Rocky, real name Rakim Mayers, articulated his discomfort with the foreign street thugs stalking him very well for the courts and media.
“I was scared and we were in defense mode,” added the Harlem, New York Pop star during cross-examination by a Swedish prosecutor.
Mayers then went on to add a story, further clarifying why he is nervous being approached by two strange men. Past situations, similar to this one, led to the rapper being stabbed twice when he did not defend himself.
“Ten months ago when I was with my cousin and these two gentlemen, I was stabbed in the face.”
A shock for many fans, this news went unreported to the general media until now. No Hip-Hop blogs had information on the matter.
“My home has been robbed twice at gunpoint. “ The rapper continued before speaking on another case where he was attacked in Auckland, New Zealand. “”When I was in Auckland, my security guard was attacked by men in an elevator.”
2 Swedish Thugs Already Attacked Others, Before Rapper
The two street punks who ASAP Rocky defended himself against, are now blaming the rapper for the melee after coming out on the losing end of the scuffle. Swedish courts went even as far as to free the attackers (read here), though they are seen on video harassing and physically attacking various young Black men within the Mr. Mayer’s rap crew.
This trial should not even be happening by most accounts but it appears Swedish officials are afraid to admit to a mistake they made. Either that or they are just really racist.
They freed the two grown men who attacked the the 30-year-old rapper and they are back in court lying in their testimonies today. They have claimed they did not even know who ASAP Rocky was, nor that he was famous. However, in videos, girls can be heard explaining to the men who the rapper was and to leave him and his crew alone.
Those same women also were seen on camera identifying the two Swedish-Afghan street vendors as their own assaulter earlier in the day. They allegedly sexually assaulted the young woman as she walked through the same street.
This accusation confirms the men were not ‘up to good’ and just selling headphones. They had a history of assaulting others with no regard for possible punishment. With the way this case is going, perhaps no minorities are safe in Sweden from such attacks, men nor women. The country instead prefers young thugs run their streets assaulting tourists and celebrities of color.
Why is it racial?
This case has taken a turn to obvious bigotry issues within Sweden as white-American rapper G-Eazy did much worse things just months ago. The Bay Area-California has even spoken out on ASAP Rocky’s behalf confirming it appears to be quite racist.
“Facts. This is the sad truth…The difference between me and Rocky’s treatment and process in Sweden brings to mind two concepts that disgustingly go hand in hand: white privilege and systemic racism. Let’s call it what it is. He should not be behind bars right now. My heart goes out to my brother @asaprocky and his team. We’re riding for yall. #JusticeForRocky #FreeRocky” wrote G-Eazy on an instagram post in support of the Harlem rhyme-slayer.
If not aware, G-Eazy offended 3 to 4 laws while in Sweden. This included attacking an off-duty police offer working security, leaving him with black eyes. The confrontation came after a security guard noticed a fight in the VIP section of the nightclub where G-Eazy was partying. He was there to help keep the rapper safe, only to end up attacked. The officer said he noticed white snot under the rappers nose and a rolled up $100 bills, which led to a search of the rapper. From there, his security team found ‘G’ to be in illegal possession of two bags of cocaine.
The outcome of G-Eazy’s case compared to Rocky’s? G was never held in a jail cell. He got a fine of just $9,000 USD and was told to not let it happen again in the next 2 years.
In contrast, Black American rapper ASAP Rocky has been held in a Swedish detention center for weeks without bail. He’s now going to trial with his case and facing up to 2 years in prison. These punishments come after the rapper pleaded on video for the 2 Swedish men to leave him alone, stop following him, and he did not want to fight. Two women also tried to plead with the men to leave the rapper alone as well.
ASAP Rocky vs G-Eazy, the verdict on Sweden
Perhaps this is how Sweden prefers things. When you rewind it, it appears they favor those who seem to be on drugs, even if it risks their own police officers’ security. Maybe the problem of ASAP Rocky in their eyes, he was not on drugs and he was being less aggressive. Perhaps this European country wants to teach it’s citizens how to just run up and punch people out like a Mike Tyson video game. Along with that, I seems Sweeden likes it’s citizens to celebrate people on cocaine, crokodil, glue, and God knows whatever other drugs they accept.
At the same time however, one might question this:if a Black or Latino male were to do those same things, would the response be the same?
See video of the full melee below here on CKHiD. It includes footage that many blogs are leaving out, to sensationalize claims of a rapper fighting. In these additional clips, ASAP Rocky is asking the guys politely and respectfully to leave him alone and saying he does not want to fight. These young Swedish guys continually approach Mayers as if they want to fight, which ultimately happens.
