It comes after the Gold Digger singer alongside his wife Kim Kardashian called on their pal, President Donald Trump, to help release A$AP from a Swedish prison he was locked up in. 

Their back on July 19 saw Trump tweet that he would be moving forward to try and negotiate the situation with the ‘very talented’ Swedish Prime Minister and get the US citizen released. 

‘Just spoke to @KanyeWest about his friend A$AP Rocky’s incarceration,’ the President Tweeted at the time.  

‘I will be calling the very talented Prime Minister of Sweden to see what we can do about helping A$AP Rocky. So many people would like to see this quickly resolved.’

Kim Kardashian also reached out to Trump’s son-in-law and senior advisor, Jared Kushner, on behalf of her and Kanye. 

‘Thank you @realDonaldTrump, @SecPompeo, Jared Kushner & everyone involved with the efforts to Free A$AP Rocky & his two friends. Your commitment to justice reform is so appreciated,’ she Tweeted.   

Unfortunately, Trump’s plea with Prime Minister, Stefan Löfven, didn’t go the distance, with his request denied. 

But the US President appeared to be in high spirits when the rapper was released late last week, even making puns about his stage name. 

Trump tweeted: ‘A$AP Rocky released from prison and on his way home to the United States from Sweden. It was a Rocky Week, get home ASAP A$AP!’

Around 20 fans gathered outside the courthouse Friday, shouting ‘Free Rocky’ and ‘Free Flacko,’ invoking the 30-year-old rapper’s different nicknames while playing the Praise the Lord rapper’s music over loudspeakers.

An online petition called #JusticeForRocky garnered more than 640,000 signatures and social media campaigns have urged fans of the New York musician to boycott Swedish brands such as IKEA.

The court allocated an extra room to accommodate the public wanting to watch through a video link. The courtroom gallery is generally reserved for media and the defendants’ families.
