A$AP Rocky's mother has revealed that she's only had contact with her son once since he's been detained in Sweden the past three weeks.
Earlier this month, A$AP Rocky was arrested in Stockholm on suspicion of assault. He's already been detained for three weeks while the investigation has been carried out.
On Saturday (20 July), US President Donald Trump revealed on Twitter that the Swedish Prime Minister Steven Löfven "assured me that American citizen A$AP Rocky will be treated fairly," before adding he had "offered to personally vouch for his bail."
The New York Times shared a statement from Swedish Prime Minister's press secretary Toni Eriksson, who said that the Prime Minister "underlined that in Sweden everyone is equal before the law and that the government cannot and will not attempt to influence the legal proceedings."
Today (23 July), A$AP Rocky's mother, Renee Black, has spoken to TMZ about her son's arrest in Sweden. She revealed she has only spoken to the rapper, real name Rakim Mayers, once since he was detained three weeks ago. She said, "He sounded ok, he sounded alright considering the circumstances. But he wanna come home."
She revealed that she doesn't want to use the "race card" in this situation, but said, "if it walks like a duck and it quacks like a duck, then it's a duck."
A$AP Rocky's mother added, "I feel like Sweden is making an example out of our boy. It’s so unjust."
Her comments are similar to Skepta's view on the situation. Last week he told NME, "Yeah, it’s not good really. I just think they’re trying to make an example out of him – which is a bit fucked up."
