Quavo Reveals he Was Also Mistreated by Swedish Police

The Hip Hop community is screaming #FreeFlacko ever since A$AP Rocky was arrested in Sweden after defending himself from a “fan” who was following and harassing him.

TMZ caught up with Quavo and asked about his thoughts about the entire ordeal and he revealed that he was also mistreated by Swedish cops. He didn’t detail when the incident happened but he made it clear that he’s well aware about the way Swedish authorities give it up.

“Sweden had us down on the curb as soon as we went to Sweden,” he said. “They had me and my cameraman on the curb, and they were trying to lock us up too.”

Free my boy Rocky,” Quavo added.

As a result of his arrest, a few artists have vowed to stop performing in Sweden including, Tyler The Creator, School Boy Q, and T.I. There’s a petition with hundreds of thousands of signatures urging for the Harlem rapper’s release.

Ahead of his arrest, Rocky took to social media to upload videos of the men harassing him and alleged that one of the men sexually assaulted several women.

The two men are currently under investigation for sexual assault and molestation.

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.”

A$AP Rocky Reportedly Being Held in Swedish Center with Miserable Living Conditions

A$AP Rocky is currently being held for two weeks in a Swedish detention facility after a physical confrontation with two men who the rapper says were following him. Now a report has emerged about his jailed conditions, which state the center is “disease-ridden.”

TMZ details Rocky is sleeping on the equivalent of a yoga mat and does not have blankets during the night. In addition, Rocky’s cellmate is stated to battling mental health, which results in him slamming his head on the wall and throwing feces.

The efforts to maintain Rocky’s own health are said to be limited due to the low quality of food and drinking water that is available to him.

Rocky is currently facing as many as six years in prison if convicted. He is currently charged with assault.

A$AP Rocky had the right to immediately speak with a U.S. Consulate official, however, the meeting was denied, which is a violation of the Vienna Convention for Consular Relations. The belief of the denial is due to the harsh living conditions of the center. Rocky eventually met with the official two days later but was not able to do so privately. The two had Swedish guards in the room, which TMZ states was “a clear intimidation tactic.”

The next step for Rocky is assistance by the State Department, which was contacted by his team, so far that has been unsuccessful due to Swedish courts.

On Tuesday (July 2), Pretty Flacko posted a couple of videos detailing the incident saying “SO A FEW DRUG ADDICTS ARE NOT MY FANS , WE DONT KNOW THESE GUYS AND WE DIDNT WANT TROUBLE , THEY FOLLOWED US FOR 4 BLOCKS , AND THEY WERE SLAPPING GIRLS BUTTS WHO PASSED , GIVE ME A BREAK”.

 

The second clip shows one of the locals throwing his headphones at his security which Rocky alludes caused the physical altercation.

A$AP Rocky truly showed what his compatriot A$AP Ferg meant when he rapped “Ride With The Mob” on the hook for his big single, “Plain Jane” after putting the mitts on a young man in Sweden. However, the footage of the fight has led to the arrest of the rapper and fashion icon.

TMZ reports:

Law enforcement in Stockholm tell us … cops busted A$AP on suspicion of aggravated assault. TMZ broke the story … the rapper and his team got into the brawl last weekend.

We posted the first video of the incident, showing Rocky and his entourage tossing a guy and punching him.

Witnesses told us the fight started because the man was hounding A$AP and his team over a pair of headphones he claimed they had broken.

However, AR later posted a nearly 3-minute long video which showed the man had actually broken his headphones when he smashed them on the head of A$AP’s bodyguard. Even after that clear first shot was taken … Rocky is seen on camera playing peacemaker, trying to calm the situation.

According to the outlet, Rocky will be held for at least three days while authorities examine potential charges. If charged to the fullest extent of the law, Rocky could serve a max of six years.
