Congressional Black Caucus Cites Human Rights Violations in A$AP Rocky Imprisonment

Members of the Congressional Black Caucus are getting involved in the attempt to free A$AP Rocky from a Swedish jail. It was previously reported that he was facing inhumane conditions, but those claims were later refuted by a Sweden authority.

Rep. Hakeem Jeffries of New York says the Congressional Black Caucus will “continue to weigh in forcefully” until we say #FreeFlacko backwards.

“The situation with ASAP Rocky is unfortunate, it’s outrageous, it needs to be addressed,” Jeffries explained. “You can expect that members of Congress, particularly those of us who are part of the Congressional Black Caucus, are going to continue to weigh in forcefully until ASAP Rocky is free.”

Jeffries added that Rep. André Carson has been applying the pressure on the State department to stay on top of the Swedish government and resolve the issue as quickly as possible.

On Tuesday, the U.S. Department of State delivered a statement addressing the Swedish government over Rocky’s alleged treatment. “There are certainly some facts about the arrest and detention that raise concerns,” a spokesperson for the department said. “We expect all governments, including Sweden, to treat American citizens fairly and with respect. We hope to see ASAP Rocky and his colleagues back on tour and reunited with friends and family soon.”

Tyga Cancels Show in Sweden Following A$AP Rocky Arrest

The pressure for Swedish authorities to release A$AP Rocky is getting higher.

There’s a petition with hundreds of thousands of signatures demanding for his release. Tyler the Creator, School Boy Q, and T.I. have all vowed to stop traveling to Sweden.

Tyga took to his Instagram story to announce that he’s cancelling his show in Sweden. “I have decided to cancel my show.” The “Taste” rapper wrote. “I will not be performing in Sweden this Sunday July 14. #freeasaprocky.”

The Harlem rapper was arrested for a fight he had in the street with an overzealous fan who followed him for four blocks and hit his security with headphones.

Previous sources claimed Rocky didn’t have clean water and was being fed “inedible food” but Kronoberg Detention Center governor Fredrik Wallin and the rapper’s manager refuted the claims.

The “F*****g Problems” rapper was forced to cancel shows in Britain, Ireland, Norway and Poland as he sits in jail waiting for his next court date.

Sweden Prison Denies Claims of A$AP Rocky Being in ‘Inhumane Conditions’

The entire Hip Hop community is calling for the release of A$AP Rocky ever since news broke that he was sitting in a Swedish jail facing six years.

There has been reports that the Harlem rapper was facing harsh, inhumane conditions but the prison is refuting those claims.

Page Six spoke to the governor of the Kronoberg detention center, Frederik Wallin, says the prison has been renovated and inmates are served three meals a day. Wallin made a statement that applied to the “general conditions which apply to all prisoners.”

“Normally, you live in a prison cell which consists of a desk, a bed with a mattress and a TV,” Wallin said. “During the last few years, we have completed a large reconstruction where all the prison cells, as well as the rest of the remand prison, have been completely renovated, which make the remand prison in good condition. I have no knowledge on any current diseases in the remand prison.”

He added that the detention center’s employees work to keep the facility clean for the inmates and themselves.

An online petition was launched to advocate for the release of A$AP Rocky. The rapper’s manager detailed the conditions which his client was imprisoned in, which included “24/7 solitary confinement, restriction of amenities for the most basic of human functions, access to palatable and life sustaining food as well as unsanitary conditions.”

Mysonne Exposes Past A$AP Rocky Comments As “Teachable Moment” After Sweden Arrest: “As A Black Man/Woman You Have An Obligation To Speak On Our Issues”

Mysonne

New York rapper Mysonne is delivering some serious food for thought. The hip-hop veteran has come forward with his two cents on rallying support for A$AP Rocky and calling out the jailed rap artists’s past disassociations from civil rights topics.

The Bronx rapper went to Instagram Wednesday to show past remarks Rocky made about not feeling obligated to speak on social issues.

Rocky previously addressed his now-infamous 2015 published remarks and denied being insensitive to social matters.

A post shared by The Shade Room (@theshaderoom) on

Back in 2015, A$AP explained his issues with becoming the face of civil rights and justice.

“Let Kendrick and J. Cole deal with that sh*t,” he retorts. He starts rapping from his record, moving his hands while swooshing through the room on his board. He goes into the song “Dreams,” spitting, “I just had an epic dream like Dr. King / Police brutality was on my TV screen—I specified ‘TV’ because I was in London. Why would I feel compelled to rap about Ferguson? I’m not about to say that I was down there throwing rocks at motherfuckers, getting pepper-sprayed. I’d be lying. Is it because I’m black? What the f*ck, am I Al Sharpton now?” He halts the electronic skateboard and looks me in the eye. “I’m A$AP Rocky. I did not sign up to be no political activist. I wanna talk about my motherf*ckin’ lean, my best friend dying, girls, my jiggy fashion and my inspirations in drugs. I live in f*cking Soho and Beverly Hills. I can’t relate. I go back to Harlem, it’s not the same. It’s a sad story. I gotta tell you the truth. I’m in the studio, I’m in fashion houses, I’m in these b*tches’ drawers. I’m not doing anything outside of that. That’s my life. These people need to leave me the f*ck alone.” (Time Out New York)

Over the past few hours, everyone from Stefflon Don and Meek Mill to G-Eazy have urged fans to sign a petition to get Rocky released from Swedish authorities.

Jim Jones Names The Most Dangerous Job In The World

Jim Jones

New York rapper Jim Jones wants fans to know there are serious dangers on the road to hip-hop riches and diamond rings. The hip-hop veteran has flexed support for jailed rap artists Juelz Santana and A$AP Rocky in light of their current legal crunches.

Jimmy went to Instagram this week to label being a rapper as the most dangerous job on the planet.

Jimmy’s message comes following handfuls of hip-hop artists encouraging fans to sign a petition to have Rocky released from Swedish authorities following an alleged physical altercation.

In May, Santana’s wife Kimbella shared a prison pic and emotional caption about how much she’s supported him since he turned himself in earlier this year.

In April, Kim went to her Instagram page with a couple new family-inspired posts.
