Swedish prosecutor asked for 6 months in prison for ASAP Rocky


All three pleaded “innocent” in the trial this week.

The rapper, in his real name Rakim Mayers, said his actions were self-defense after his bodyguard was attacked, but the evidence available to the prosecutors did not prove this.

Prosecutor Daniel Suneson said Friday that the June 30 actions cannot be viewed as self-defense. “We have three people punching and one person lying on the ground. Their violence is clearly unjustifiable. ”

He asked for six months’ imprisonment for each accused.

The 30-year-old rapper, model and music producer was arrested on July 3, along with two of his acquaintances, in connection with an altercation that took place in downtown Stockholm on June 30.

Mayers’ detention has sparked dissatisfaction among fans, as well as celebrities such as Kim Kardashian and Rod Stewart.

US President Donald Trump has said he personally guarantees and has asked the Swedish prime minister to release him, a request firmly rejected by the Stockholm government, which has stressed that he is not involved in injustice.

The rapper, known for the song “Praise the Lord”, was in Stockholm to play at the Smash Festival. The detention led to the cancellation of the other scheduled concerts.

Mayers debuted in 2011 with “Live.Love.A $ AP”. His latest album, “Testing”, released last year, came in fourth on the Billboard 200.
