Kanye West (blue hoodie) was all smiles as he stepped out of his Calabasas, Calif. office with rapper A$AP Nast (grey hoodie) after meeting with him in the hours after President Trump intervened on behalf of rapper A$AP Rocky.

Kanye, 42, had good news for Nast after speaking with his friend, President Trump. Don’t quote me, but word is Rocky will be released from a Swedish prison soon.

Kanye and his wife Kim Kardashian-West are credited with urging Trump to help free A$AP Rocky, who was arrested earlier this month after an altercation with two men in Stockholm on June 30.

A$AP Rocky, whose real name is Rakim Mayers, has been held in jail for 3 weeks in Sweden.

Trump said his wife Melania Trump and influential friends in the Black community urged him to intervene on Rocky's behalf.

In a Friday tweet, Trump said he had "a very good call" with Prime Minister Stefan Lofven, and he assured Lofven that he, Trump, would personally vouch for the rapper's bail. But officials point out there is no bail system in Sweden.

Swedish officials made it clear to Trump that the rapper would not be given preferential treatment.

"In Sweden everyone is equal before the law and that the government cannot and will not attempt to influence the legal proceedings," said the prime minister's press secretary, Toni Eriksson.

28-year-old A$AP Nast is a Harlem-born rapper best known for his hit single "Trillmatic," featuring Method Man, which dropped in October 2013. He is an influential member of the A$AP Mob rap collective.

    I was thinking the same thing. Seems to me that ever since Obama publicly called him an idiot, his bruised his ego never healed. Then the Carters distance themselves from him and got cool with the Obamas. Now he's team Trump - out of spite...

    I didn’t feel indifferently until she went back to the store and confronted the man on camera. CTG kept saying she could stand and had energy at the press conference and I could see that. She cried in her post but was very bold after the fact. It was low key Jussie again.

  • the guest

    Everyone is not equal before the law in Sweden.

    Europe despises Muslims.

    But this ASAP Rocky situation is notice that African Americans are despised even more. I don’t think people get the magnitude of the message sent that Sweden is pulling this racist injustice. Black artists once considered Sweden a haven and sanctuary from racism. They’re sending a message that it’s a new day in Sweden. This is no small matter and there should be protests there.

  • Wreckognize Game

    ASAP can have Ye and 45. I’ll be watching how JayZ moves over here with 21Savage.

  • CardiB’sAbs

    Folks like her piss me off not following the rules with their lazy asses. I would’ve dogged her out too having extra items in the express lane. Take yo big ass down to the regular checkout line.

  • CardiB’sAbs

    Straight clownery!

  • NewNew

    No lie, I honestly thought it was a joke. I was waiting for the punchline. I couldn't tell whether she was serious or not. When she said, "yeah I had 20 items but . . . " I was waiting for her to break character and start laughing. I can't believe she tried to make this ish an issue when there are real issuei out there affecting us all. ?? https://media3.giphy.com/media/xT8qBtr4nE52tvNofS/giphy-downsized-medium.gif

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    I think she's just hormonal and isn't getting attention...When I first saw the story I was like are you serious??? I have a friend who is married to a state rep and he can post personal stuff on his pages but its limited...oh and the fact that she's said she had 11 items, then 15 items now 20 items...sounds like someone isn't getting enough attention at home...we have bigger issues on the table...I hate to say this but with that news conference and her backtracking she needs to be reprimanded...

    I don't know who "our vote" is but he definitely has MINE! I guess you forgot he assisted with getting the Balls released in China. Trump is not Racist! He is rich and brass. As such he don't give a pluck what you think about him. You can believe whatever the man is telling you to believe but I'm going to work very hard to get him re-elected which will cover your ignorance and lack of knowledge.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Yeah Kanye got that Charles Manson grin going on.

  • facingrealit1

    Wow-my people perish for a lack of knowledge. His court date would have given him more time not including what he has already served as in the eyes of the Swedish he was guilty. Funny you have a lot to say about Trump but not a damn thing about all those so-called friends of ASAP who have stated they want ASAP released but will not be boycotting as they will continue to go get that Swedish monies.

    Thanks for the info. I don't follow these people.

  • Harley

    She didn’t get the ball rolling. She and Dump are taking credit to boost their ratings and votes for 2020.

    There are local political figures and lawyers who have already been doing the groundwork to get him out.

    It’s a sad day when people think Dump or the Kartrashians are doing any good just to do it. Everything is plotted and staged

    In all of this, Asap is being strongly reminded that he's still a negro...whether he lives in Beverly Hills or Ferguson. Smdh.

    So when this happened to the white American that guy works with charlamagne (or his friend) what was that?

    Me either honey! My husband thinks i'm crazy because almost everything that comes out of my mouth is from a 90s or 2000s song. He is always cracking up at me. But he gets my crazy which is unfortunate, lol.

  • Bree

    Yes! Half of the time I don't understand what these fools are saying. I'm like can you enunciate. Shucks! It gets on my nerves. I give radio a try sometimes, but there's always that one song that pushes me to turn it off and turn Pandora back on.

  • Carla B
  • MsSapphire9800

    What's the difference...ASAP and 21 Savage are both law breakers.... having Jay Z on your team make you a classier criminal??? These rappers will go to hell for a dollar...knowing most countries do not give a damn about a blackman.

    Add the Carters...TI and the rest...it is all about publicity no matter who they are.

  • Bashi22

    Kanye West your France ?? thief with your wife jewelry is still under investigation I hope ? you know the French laws and how it’s going to affect you. You haven’t been to France ?? from that incident even to support your friend Virgil show.

    I did not say one was classier than the other. However, being arrested for overstaying a Visa is different than going overseas and committing a crime on camera.

    I don't believe that it doesn't. I'm not one to cry wolf either but this is foul. Even white boy, G-Easy, called out Sweden's hypocrisy after he was caught snorting cocaine and punching a bouncer in the face. He spent a millisecond in custody before he was allowed to go home.

    His skin color definitely played a part in this.
