American rapper, Asap Rocky was arrested in sweeden on suspicion of assault in relation to a fight on Sunday in the capital Stockholm, where he’d been playing at a festival called Smash.
A video which has been put online show the assault however the rapper replied by putting up his own video alleging they were before the fight and show the man following him.
TMZ reported that a source confirmed that the rapper is being held in very poor conditions and is being made to sleep on just a yoga mat.
The website claims the rapper is being held in a “disease-ridden” prison where the food is “inedible”.
However, Fredrik Wallin the governor responded to the claims saying although he cannot comment on individual prisoners, “I am able to talk about the general conditions in the remand prison which apply to all prisoners,” he said. He assured the public that prisoners at Kronoberg normally live in cells that contain a desk, a bed with a mattress, and a TV.
Claiming the prison was renovated in the last few years, with all the prison cells being reconstructed, leaving the prison in “good condition”.
This counters the TMZ report which mentioned Rocky being held in a cell next to someone with “severe mental issues who slams his head against the concrete wall and hurls faeces every which way… faeces that are not cleaned up”.
A separate claim by an ASAP mob member, ASAP Ferg says the rapper is being held in solitary confinement.
The rapper is being held pending the conclusion of investigations into the fight.
The situation has led to friends of ASAP like Tyler, The Creator, ScHoolboy Q and Lil Yachty saying they are boycotting the country.
