A$AP Rocky has been released from a Swedish prison and allowed to return home to the U.S. The news was reported in a tweet by President Trump on Friday.

"A$AP Rocky released from prison and on his way home to the United States from Sweden. It was a Rocky Week, get home ASAP A$AP!" Trump tweeted.

The president was disappointed when Swedish officials charged Rocky last week, rather than release him.

At the start of Rocky's trial this week, Trump sent a special envoy from the U.S. State Department to show the Swedes he meant business.

The rapper, who's real name is Rakim Mayers, pleaded not guilty to assaulting an Afghan migrant who hit his bodyguard with headphones during a scuffle on June 30.

The prosecutor asked for a 6 month prison sentence on day 3 of the trial. But Rocky offered to do community service work instead of jail time, The Sun reports.

A$AP, who wore a black suit rather than the green prison clothes he was issued. He told the judge: "You know my address, you know my lawyer's address. I'm into charity work."

His speedy trial came just days after he was charged with assault. The rapper was held in jail for a month.

Since being elected president in 2016, Trump has been credited with the release of multiple Black Americans jailed in foreign countries.

  • Jai

    Now Trump will have it in his mind he is owed his support and call on him during campaigns. Ugh, y'all know he's going to mention this in 60% of his rallies, the other 40% his old ass will forget to mention it because he rants about something stupid and says something ignorant so press covers it.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™
  • TheOwley

    What Trump is not is modest. He will take credit if he thinks he influenced a decision. He did with those stick fingers basketball players and now Rocky. It would have been bad optics for either country to imprison these three and Trump kept their feet to the fire. Of course many will not credit Trump or the Wests which personally asked him to intervene. Had this been Obama, people would have been genuflection to him for ever. Word of advice to these guys, stay home for a while.

  • Ghetto Real Name

    Can we get a post on American's getting released in America? Cyntoia Brown gets released next week

    I feel you. I have respect for Donald Trump's presidency and leadership, just like I had for Bush. I don't have to like who is in office, but I do respect the position. I don't question who God puts in office. It was already ordained.

  • Ghetto Real Name

    I dont need any research on that coon ass Herschel Walker. I am well aware that he is on his sambo in the name of Donald Trump. Im convinced its not him since he does have admitted multiple personalities. Maybe that personality is a coon too. Who knows.

    Name them

  • GAPeach

    She gonna tell somebody to google a mfer and can't even spell his name right.

  • Jai

    I know he didn't had you used your comprehension skills you may have picked up on that. Doesn't matter what anyone believes he has it in his own mind he is reason it happened. Your comment wasn't necessary, but your exit is. ?

  • ALLMINE?

    Naw. He'll talk shit about Trump to fit in with black folks..

  • lovelygamour

    people are saying rocky needs a new security team but there was nothing they could do execpt hail a cab. cause those dudes was following them and when everyone tried to get them to stop it escaltated. just stay out of sweden. they are a little country. only 9 million people. so if they are locking people up over this then i will either completely leave them alone or only go for business and stay in the hotel.

    so do black lives matter now rocky. that prosecutor went after you alone because you are a black rapper. g-eazy was a mence to all and got a fine, which i think was fair but he shouldve been given a week in jail.

  • ALLMINE?

    It sounds like he would say that shit tho

  • ALLMINE?

    He wont to please black folks.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Of course, he can and will take credit, it’s what he does best!

    1. The Sweden government didn’t prove their case!

    2. A witness recanted her story about actually seeing ASAP hitting the alleged victim!

    3. Rocky’s defense demonstrated that a bottle of the size, which Rocky was accused of would have rendered more severe damages!

    4. Rocky stated to the judges, he will not be seeking damages!

    5. Sweden made their point, and Trump was as relieved as Rocky (his fragile ego) because Sweden took it as far as they could!

    6. Most people could care less about some black rapper, and the U.S. is disliked by many worldwide!

    7. The victory lap belongs to God answering the prayers of many, but continue on! Many Americans remain locked up broad!

  • Phil Mccrackenzme

    This puts ASAP in an awkward position when he gets back. Can't wait to see who he credits

  • Christopher Gibson

    I'll wait too........

  • Christopher Gibson

    Absolutely nothing.

  • Passion

    Crickets ?

  • 11pink123

    Go Trump?????

  • Soon2BWife

    So does he thank Trump or act like it never happened. Sound like Trump wants to be bros.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Well, thankfully it’s over, not a Rocky fan, but to be locked up abroad is nothing I wish on anyone. Even tho, I was glad to see him eat his own words!

    I like to travel, and wouldn’t want this experience, but I would have called the police and U.S. consulate, ASAP!

    Every cloud has a silver lining, and hopefully much self introspection comes for him, and he’s in a better place, a nicer person!

  • Miss Lady

    Best thing to do is simply say he would like to thank every one involved in his release from the hoe house to the white house.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Rock on! I’m non-political, and have no dog in this race!

    I don’t live vicariously through celebrities or their identities!

  • KarmaBackAround

    Exactly! When worldly events fo on and he comments, i feel like im watchin the apprentice ? sometimes i still cant believe this ass is president ..he use to talk about rosie o donnell sooo bad

  • Bushbabe

    BLm was missing from the cut so I don't think he cares. They don't protest unless the Democrats send for them. Your Black queen Kamala already complained about The Donald interfering. Bloop.

  • Bushbabe

    I can tell by that dry Thankyou. Black people never learn.

  • Bushbabe

    Yes, The Donald introduced his first step act and that is why. Beats the Democrats mass incarceration act anyway.

  • Madashelle

    We Black people from the United States know why BLM was not there. If you're going to come to a predominately Black Blog and pretend to be Black, at least get your bases covered.

    I had my eye on you for a minute. I wasn't sure which color you were. Your response revealed it to me: " They don't protest unless the Democrats send for them".

    That's not the reason. If you were Black, you would know the reason.

  • Bushbabe

    BECKY WHO made you the black card queen? You need to get out more and socialize because your ignorance of black people is unbelievable. You act like a Becky trying to put me in a box like all black people are a monolith. That's rich of you.

  • Bushbabe

    BLM is the liberals black KKK. They are not protesting Bmore , chicago or any other urban ghetto
    They only come out around election time when they are needed to play the race card. So eff BLM and the cave they are hiding in with thier cave demon masters.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Rather he gives Trump credit for his release or not,other folks will including Trump. SoHo and Beverly Hills gon be lit tonight ASAP is free

  • gellie

    He gon' have to dip it low for the Orange Turd.

  • gellie

    Yep. If you don't believe nothing else, believe that the Orange Turd has COMPLETE control and exclusive use of his Twitter.

  • gellie

    It doesn't matter. Orange Turd believes he made it happen, therefore ASAP will be popping that bootay for the Turd through 2020.

  • Lucky8

    45 can take the credit, and give this clown a job in the new WH where qualifications are not needed for any position.

  • Logan Roberts

    How cute ?

  • Madashelle

    No. BLM came out when brothers were getting shot repeatedly by the police. That's what some of y'all fail to realize. Some of you all equate BLM with Obama, Liberals, and Democrats. I was on one website yesterday where one person said that now that Obama is no longer in office you don't hear of too many police shootings.
    Coincidence? I think not.

    The real situation is now that a White man is in the presidential office the police feel more in control of their atmosphere and destiny. They have plenty of cohorts from all across the Nation to help them with policing. And, knowing who is office makes them feel at piece. On top-of-the-world again. There remains plenty of angry pigs out there but as long as they don't have a Black man in the presidential office, they are handling it differently.

    As far as putting you in the box, I'm just going by your vernacular when you spoke of BLM. That's the same thinking that The Whites use. BLM=OBAMA, LIBERALS & DEMOCRATS.

    Becky? Me? I was there when that terminology was being coined.

  • Bushbabe

    We know mike Brown was the aggressor now so why are continuing with the myth? Do the work and research and u will see we kill more blackem and women than the police. Hell our own politicians sell.7s out for a dollar.

  • Madashelle

    I'm not condoning anything. I'm talking about the origination of BLM - that's it.

  • Solstice

    I thought I read many of our US embassies are unmanned right now. I think it means consulates who might have intervened our the behalf of the US citizens in the past are not in place to represent any us. Double check before traveling and be safe. ??????

  • Bushbabe

    And I am talking about how we have these so called balck leader giving us lip service with no results. Skin folk is not always kin folk. And we need to stop being prideful and know the difference.

  • Marlika

    ?? ASAP, his hood rat mama, supporters and 45!! ????????????????????

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Well, I agree, it’s important to check government travel warnings, and know who’s in place to assist you while traveling!

    I remember the unmanned embassies, but there may be a contact number to help with assistance!

    Most important, understand the laws, culture where you are traveling!

  • Dowoop

    ???

  • Disgustd

    How bout releasing TRUE US political prisoners right in the US like Mumia, Mutulu Shakur, H. Rap Brown, Sundiata Acoli, along with a host of others? And it's also interesting to me that almost NOBODY brings up Gitmo anymore and the fact that it's still housing people illegally and into perpetuity--ALL WITHOUT having charged these people with crimes.

  • Disgustd

    EL Cheeto intervened on ASAP Rocky's behalf but former pro football player & Detroiter Wendell Brown's been sitting in a Chinese prison for over 2 years now and I haven't seen him intervene in that case & the situation isn't much different--this man was simply defending himself in a bar after Chinese patrons started throwing stuff at him b/c he didn't want to play zoo animal and take pics with them.

  • Disgustd

    Didn't help Wendell Brown in China. I think I'd have better luck with a foreign govt than with the US overseas.

  • Disgustd

    BLM is controlled opposition and funded by fake JOO George Soros. They are more concerned with LGBTQ issues than black issues. Doesn't the FBI train you CoINTELPRO trolls on these BASIC facts?

  • Disgustd

    CoINTELPRO trolls. And ignorant ones at that but I guess if you are a career criminal and the FBI offers you a job to spy & troll in exchange for leniency, that explains the low caliber troll intelligence...

  • Solstice

    So very true! ??

  • Bushbabe

    The Democrats own every sambo in this race. Do stop deflecting. It's in your DNA.

  • greedmonster1

    If it wasn't for Trump Asap Rocky would be still in jail period.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    I absolutely agree, his intervening on behalf of ASAP was for show, publicity!

  • Disgustd

    I know one case for sure he hasn't intervened in (but neither did Obama)--Wendell Brown in China. This brotha was simply defending himself against Chinese bar patrons who got mad at him b/c he didn't want to play zoo animal and take pics with them.

  • GAPeach

    I read about. I truly feel for him. The only reason he got involved in this case is because he hopes it gives us so warm and fuzzies about him. If this happened right here in the states, he would be calling Rocky a thug.

  • Disgustd

    Nothing but TRUTH. And probably will still call him a thug in private. lol.

  • Jas

    I'm skeptical bout Trump having something to do it?
