It's good to have friends in high places. Rapper A$AP Rocky is set to leave a Swedish jail just days after U.S. President Donald Trump appealed to government officials for his release.

In a Friday tweet, Trump said he had "a very good call" with Prime Minister Stefan Lofven about Rocky's treatment in jail. Trump, who isn’t familiar with the rapper, said he called the PM after his wife Melania Trump asked him to intervene on Rocky's behalf.

Rocky, 30, remains in jail after his arrest earlier this month following a street fight with two immigrants in Stockholm, Sweden. But sources say he will be released from jail very soon.

The rapper already has a gig lined up after he is released. According to WENN.com, the rapper has been tapped to headline the second night of the inaugural Rolling Loud festival at Citi Field in Queens, New York.

Rocky joins other headliners Wu-Tang Clan, Travis Scott, Meek Mill, and Lil Uzi Vert, who also are slated to perform at the two-day event, which will take place from October 12-13.

Rocky's mom, Renee Black says Sweden is holding her son because officials want to make an example of him. She said his arrest is racially motivated.

"I feel like Sweden is making an example out of our boy. It's so unjust," she told TMZ. She said she "feels sick" with fear for her son's safety.

Black said she spoke to her son since his arrest. "He sounded ok, he sounded alright considering the circumstances," she said. "But he wanna come hone."

According to TMZ, Rocky may be paid millions in lost income if he is released without charges. Swedish law entitles inmates to recoup lost revenues or back pay if they are released without being charged.

The "Fashion Killa" is currently awaiting a hearing to determine if any charges will be filed as authorities continue to investigate a street fight he was involved in on June 30.

One of the two migrants involved in the street fight with Rocky won't face charges, according to a Swedish prosecutor.

    Hopefully this has taught ASAP something. I also hope that he keeps his crew in line or get a new bodyguard. There's no way I'm going to be sitting in prison because of someone else's foolishness.

    I bet you he and his boys won't be doing any more street-beatdowns in the future, even if the other person provoked him first (which it looks like was the case here).

    My dearest Renee:

    Bish if you dont STFU.

    Your funny looking son wasnt worried about racism in AMERICA so dont YOU go worrying about if his arrest was motivated by race in SWEDEN. Fukk you AND him.

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    The Swedens laws are NOTHING LIKE THESE broken lopsided BULL DOOKIE AMERICAN LAWS. TRUMP WAS NOT INFLUENTIAL on getting APESAP RELEASED! Swedens said they don't operate on the GOVERNMENT LEVEL so DONALD you can't do NADA bye! MEANWHILE one of the knuckleheads that got a beat down was released FIRST which means SWEDENS BALL OF JUSTICE US ROLLING ..ApeSAP may be getting released because off SWEDEN form of Justice and NOT DONALD'S. DONALD PLEASE DON'T USE THIS AS YOUR BLACK CARD! LORTY!

    She's so cute. I think she was 10 in that gif.

  • Ghetto Real Name

    I feel like some of it is a green light too. All of this shit is falling out about Antoine that was either previously overlooked or unknown. I mean its A LOT. You cant act particulary outraged when this happens for the 5th-6th time. You just pull your social media accounts like Lela did and fade to black. I still do feel sorry for her. But now that I know this BEEN happening? Im kinda like...*shrug*

  • Ghetto Real Name

    No excuse. But the whole thing is crazy at this point

And NOW we are supposed to rally around him cause he got locked up in a foreign country?? Maybe this whole experience will humble him and make him woke on whats going on....maybe?

  • the guest

    He never said he wasn't and didn't feel black. He made a class assertion not racial one. Millions of upper middle class and affluent black people do live isolated from issues lower income and marginalized black people face and many proud and raical blacks did not support BLM,

  • http://welfareinfo.org angrysolo

    wistful thinking?

  • TheOwley

    Trump doesn't know who this guy is. Kim and Kanye asked Trump to intervene. Trump said he would ad he did. He didn't call the warden, he called the freaking PM. I think he will walk but what will he do when he gets here. Will he genuflect to the anti-trump crowd and insult the president, or will he quietly thank him for his intervention, as well as Kim, Kanye and his baby mama. What are the Vegas odds on this.

  • Rayne

    You have the best reads lmao ? u and carrington with bow y’all heads and sister in Christ ???

    Right... Two side babies... Awe hell naw. She obviously likes it

  • Ms Trevor

    This is true. I didn’t experience racism until 2016. Of course I mean the in your face kind, not systematic.

  • T Willis

    He said “I didn’t sign up to be mfing Al Sharpton”... that sounds kind of racial to me...

  • Marlika

    ??ASAP Rocky along with his mama and cousins too!!?

  • ALLMINE?

    Who said trump knew A$ap rocky?

  • TheOwley

    Trump, who isn’t familiar with the rapper, said he called the PM after his wife Melania Trump asked him to intervene on Rocky's behalf.

    Merely reiterating what's in the article. He knows Kim and Kanye for sure and is intervening in their behalf.

  • ALLMINE?

    Where did it say he knew asap?

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    Let me go back and read the comments

  • TransMichelle

    The Donald to the rescue once again...! He also had to get those neegrows out in China for stealing. Yet..."he be racist" is what the white liberals have convinced black folks of and black folks follow like little trained puppies.When Jesse Jackson ran for president The Donald contributed to his campaign. Poor Jesse and other so-called black leaders have to follow their white massas. Now A$AP's mama want to try and pull the race card on Sweden. Everywhere black folks go it's always about racism. It's Ridiculous and embarrassing...! Anyway...I'm out.

  • http://bitchbecomesher.com Tasha Nicole

    He's such a handsome man, but bwahahahaha the universe had to remind him since he said black lives don't matter because he doesn't deal with that stuff. haha

  • Rhyme and Reason

    I don’t think Trump’s call had nothing to do with it!

    He’s been in there for a few weeks, June 30th - July 23rd, the charges against one of the migrants were dropped.

    They weren’t going charge him, and DID want to make an example out of him!

    Trump, Kanye and Kim can and will take full credit, but they [Sweden] made their point, and are moving on!

    This was a living nightmare, beyond a 72 hour hold, and now Rocky knows for sure he’s still black, regardless of his success!

  • lovelygamour

    of course its racially motivated but who cares what she has to say. her son said basically he was above black matters because he lives in an affluent area.

    i would be interested in hearing what he thinks about racism now. because the only reason he is in jail is because he is a black rapper and they are making an example out of him.

  • T Young

    Him being released has zero to do with Trump. He was only being held an additional week and that week is almost up.

  • lovelygamour

    if he was a regular person he wouldnt had been in jail.

  • WiseGui

    This is nothing more than one big theatrical production.

    Rocky’s people call Al Sharpton to step in, he fails. Kim calls Trump, Trump asks his wife who apparently has relations with the black community? 2 days later Rocky is released. Now trump and Kim gloat on their success.

    The story is being used as race bait. Trump had nothing to do with his release. Sweden got good and ready to release him, and did just that. They made it clear that everyone in the country is treated equally under the law and that no foreign entity could influence their judicial system.

  • dru and neil

    Perhaps due process played out as it should, and now he’s being let go? Everyone wanted to just bypass the law in that country because he’s famous.

  • lovelygamour

    Sandra is the only one reporting it like that. lol.

  • lovelygamour

    those guys messed with them first and one of them smashed headphones over the bodyguards head. you cant spin this. asap and crew was trying to get away from those guys.

  • lovelygamour

    locking him up wasnt following the law. for anyone else this wouldve been a ticket at most with maybe a few hours at the police station. most people go home in sweden and then comeback. most celebrities would have their passports taking and made to stay at the hotel. asap had to go directly to jail.

  • lovelygamour

    no one called al sharpton you have confused the whole story.

  • Bree

    I stand corrected if true.

  • Bonita

    No, if he was a regular person, Trump wouldn't have vouched for him, and he wouldn't be getting released. He'd continue to sit his behind in that cell until they finish their investigation.

  • Chulita

    Look up all the pics before Trump was president
    He was friends w the black community
    Even got awards

  • Sacha

    ???????

  • TransMichelle

    EXACTLY....! They don't want to acknowledge that though. When The Donald became president all of a sudden they want to claim he's racist. It's sad and disgusting at the same time.

  • Rhondalousey

    Ikr. I for one am not excited . Now he's really going to be all on tv and all over the blogs. Oh lawd here we go, eight more weeks of looking at Ms. Cellie, smh.

  • Wreckognize Game

    Exactly??

  • Wreckognize Game

    It would be interesting if he did an interview. He should say thank you for prayers, checking etc and move on. If he says the wrong thing, it will be a nightmare for him.

    THIS!!!!!

    I don’t want to continue holding the torch about what he said. I’m gonna let it go. I hope he will back black people and can relate to our experiences after this.

  • Malificent

    If he said that there is no hope for him smh. That is one lost bro.

  • Allihave2say

    What will happen is this: "Of course I still love rich white people. Melania, Donald and Kim are all white and they spoke to the white people in Sweden who decided to let me come back home to Calabasas. I live in the same town as Kylie Jenner you know, she's white too. Well, I've got to get a Perrier Water and head to the Gucci fashion show. "

    They gave him his time without conviction for his time.

    The Donald's "actions and words" show that he loves America. You need to take your parroting, anti-American, baby killing supporting, illegal immigrant/anchor baby advocate azz somewhere and sit down. If The Donald is a racist then I had Odumba's baby.

    you dont want to go to hard and make it worst but none of those -white friends- have said anything.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    He’s a black man who feels inferior to white people, so his success and perceived acceptance inflated his ego! Believes Light skin or white skin is better!

    What these rappers don’t realize is they are pure entertainment, a plait wearing, pickaninny, minstrel show that Anna Wintour promotes to seem artsy, edgy and fashion-forward, “street scenes, the ghetto rockstars, etc.!”

  • Allihave2say

    I'm going in! He was mad disrespectful to his own people. The comment about Ferguson compared to his living status was beyond disgusting. I can't!
