A$AP Rocky has posted a message responding to being denied access to perform for his former inmates at Stockholm's Kronoberg prison.
Last week, the Swedish prison board confirmed that A$AP Rocky, real name Rakim Mayers, wouldn't be able to perform at the Swedish jail he was held at due to logistical and security reasons.
Mayers was arrested in Stockholm in July on suspicion of assault, and was later found guilty. He remained in prison for nearly a month, but didn't have to do any additional jail time after the final verdict.
Today, the rapper has posted a message on socials in response to not being allowed to perform at the Swedish prison. He wrote on Twitter, "Even when i'm denied access to donate or perform for the inmates in Sweden I still want to raise awareness for the immigrants and poor ppl of outside surrounding areas, this has been a real difficult journey, but I feel it's my task to give back to ppl who supported me when I was down."

In a separate tweet, he reminded fans that he's performing at Stockholm's Ericsson Globe on Wednesday, "SEE U IN STOCKHOLM 12/11."
