August 14, 2019
A$AP Rocky was found guilty of assault in a Stockholm street brawl, but he won’t have to serve any more time behind bars.
The Harlem-born rapper was convicted by a Swedish judge for his role in the street fight in a case that has attracted the attention of President Trump and New York lawmakers.
The hip-hop artist, whose real name is Rakim Mayers, was hit with a fine and won’t have to return to prison. He had faced up to two years in prison for his role in a June 30 brawl that he says was a case of self defense.
