A$AP Rocky thanked fans after getting his first taste of freedom on Friday. The rapper, whose real name is Rakim Mayers, was charged with assaulting an Afghan migrant who hit his bodyguard with headphones during a scuffle on June 30.

Rocky, 30, was released early from a Swedish jail on Friday ahead of his trial verdict. Two members of his entourage who were arrested with him were also released from jail on Friday.

Rocky thanked his fans for their support in an Instagram post on Friday afternoon. In the caption of a somber image of himself wearing a yellow scarf, he wrote:

"Thank you from the bottom of my heart to all of my fans, friends, and anyone across the globe who supported me during these few weeks. I can't begin to describe how grateful I am for all of you this has been a very difficult and humbling experience I want to thank the court for allowing me Bladi and Thoto to return to our family and friends thanks agains for all the love and support."

President Trump announced Rocky's early release on Twitter.com. "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 interceded on Rocky's behalf after his good friends, Kanye and Kim Kardashian-West asked him to help the rapper.

Rocky faced a minimum of 2 years in prison if convicted on the assault charge. It is not clear if he will be ordered to return to Sweden to hear the judge's verdict.

    The Donald is a force not to be reckoned with. He is about it un like others and not just giving lips service. Watch him now. Now if only smart black community organizations would go have a effing seat at the table. Black people we need to stop being loyal to politicians like cum bucket who just let Bmore rot for 2 decades. Damn

  • Soda

  • MsPam

    Now the Donald is going to throw it up every chance he gets.

  • Wreckognize Game

    Waiting for his president to call him out on not thanking him.

  • ShWa

    Those pearls tho?

  • T Willis

    Don’t start your sh*t today

  • ShWa

    Yep humble yourself before u get shown how to get humble.

  • Eric B

    Not questioning your opinion or views, however, one experience can change one's perspective. Maybe, just maybe, he sees things differently now. I think about Meek Mill after his situation. He seems to have turned over a new leaf.

  • Wreckognize Game

    I will take this over A1 Bentley who wears pearls, fingernail polish, lady shoes and has knock knees. Including his new mushroom haircut he looks like Velma from ScoobyDoo on date night.

  • Bushbabe

    As much ish these degenerates are kicking up over non citizens, you best believe I'm gonna call out these demons for not advocating for the people who they actually should be working for. Congress is wasting tax payers dollars and crying about illegals care. Meanwhile people in Bmore is living like hell. What a wicked web.

  • The Chosen 1.

    Me too. Like my mom always told us, "she wants to keep both feet on the ground because when she falls, she wont have far to go."
    Thats why it pays to be humble and listen to the old school adults/parents.

  • Wreckognize Game

    Go ahead and pull him up on IG?

  • ALLMINE?

    He won't thank Trump.. I bet. Smh

  • R in NYC

    Trump didn't have anything to do with his release....don't drink the kool-aid.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    No, we need to invest in ourselves, rebuild, sweep up our hoods, educate, home school, farm, manufacture, circulate dollars in our own communities, like everyone else!

    Not your Donald or anyone else (no politician) with access to power and control over the infrastructure is not going do anything measurable or liberating for black people.

    The Industrial prison complex (black and brown individuals who can’t make bail, plead out, unfair sentencing laws, etc.), human trafficking (multi-billion dollar industry), opioid and other drug epidemics, big pharma, major banks (fees, high interest rates) fuel our economy and keep the 1 or 10 percent rich (RLM)!

    He views us as scum, and even one of our talented tenth from our Black Genius Pool, didn’t meet his approval, even before he had one day in office or signed one executive order!

    Dream on!

  • Allihave2say

    Yesterday I read that R. Kelly went missing during transport.

  • Allihave2say

    I'd never heard of A1 Bentley until your post. I just looked him up and to me he looks like the twin of Future. Are they brothers?

  • Wreckognize Game

    No, they aren’t related. He seems to want a rock star hip hop image but can’t get it right

  • Allihave2say

    I see. I was seeing pictures on IG, he gives me a Dennis Rodman vibe.

  • MythCalledLove

    Damn what about the innocent Americans locked up in other countries. Those families probably wonder WTH??!! I think they would love a lil bit of swift intervention.

  • Allihave2say

    That's about one of the very few things Trump gets done right!

  • Allihave2say

    Meanwhile the black man who was defending himself in China has been there for years after he was attacked first and acted in self defense.

  • Allihave2say

    This negro man is wearing pink, pearls and diamonds?
    When Prince wrote that song it was not for dudes. Not!

  • Simone

    What's the flavor of the koolaid? Facts. Liberal publications like the Washington Post, reported The President sent a special envoy for hostage affairs, Robert C. O’Brien, to Stockholm, Sweden on a mission to get ASAP Rocky and his 2 co-defendants home. Before that, he's been on the phone with Sweden's Prime Minister in back and forth negotiations. The legal process is underway, but give credit where's it due, no matter how you feel about Trump.

  • Joy King

    Honestly I’m glad A$AP has been released. What Sweden was trying to do to him is wrong. Point blank period. I never followed his career, so I was unaware of the comments he made regarding BLM and Black women until this incident happened. Sometimes people are faced with life altering events to humble them and get their mind right. Hopefully this has happened to A$AP because many don’t get a second chance.

    You do realize he hasn't been sentenced yet, don't you?

    He's still going to travel to tour. Trump ain't the ruler of the world. Another country may be happy to hand him over once he's sentenced.

  • the guest

    But Trump can grant him asylum and he won't have to return.

  • the guest

    These young men have been preyed upon by the gay agenda.

  • the guest

    Trump needs to set up a special force for this. There's a young black man in a Chinese prison that NEEDS to come home ASAP. he was there before Lonzo Ball and is still there.

  • the guest

    Exactly.

    And I'm not pro Trump. But he did the right thing and got ASAP released.

  • the guest

    It's proper not even political, he needs to thank Trump.

  • the guest

    Agreed.

  • the guest

    Trump can grant him asylum.

  • the guest

    Speak!!!!

  • the guest

    I've wondered that too.

    Self-sufficiency is never a ghost! WP are tire of you, and want to know why you trash your own neighborhoods, lower property values, litter your own streets with food wrappers, broken glass, house your high school dropout gang bangers, not properly share common spaces, DEFINITELY NOT ALL BLACKS!

    We still have a strong middle-class of hard working Black People, from school teachers, social workers, nurses, to postal workers, 9 to 5 corporate workers and supervisors to upper middle-management to senior level, Black CEOs, and awesome entrepreneurs!

    Elijah Cummings alone can’t stop the disrepair, truancy, gangs, bad parenting, mass littering, throwing trash out of cars, generational poverty, the violence, criminal activity, looting, life choices of the disenfranchised!

    Cummings is just like most politicians, SELF-SERVING! Take control, do for self, public policy can only do so much!

  • GAPeach

    Maybe you aren't smart enough to realize this, but it has everything to do with it. He is free, but he ain't cleared dummy. Don't some at me like that, I wasn't talking to you, and then you chose to be disrespectful. Let me block your ass. I can't stand an ignorant MF.

  • GAPeach

    That's true, but if he travels overseas, they always have the opportunity to get him there. I doubt they would, and he wasn't even facing that much time anyway. It's not worth it.

    Fool Asap Rocky had a Trump hostage convey to bring him home. He is cleared and ain't never going back to Sweden no matter what the verdict. The reason that left him leave was because the Prez warned them it would be negative consequences if Rocky wasn't released.

  • ALLMINE?

    Amen

  • GAPeach

    You just typed that misspelled, nonsensical mess, and want to call someone a fool? Your time would be best served studying for you GED. Let me block your ass too. I don't do dummies.

You’ze A nigga, just like the rest of us. I guess them Sweeds Didn’t care about your little celebrity status in America. How did it feel being locked up in Sweden jail bro? I know your not Al Sharpton and all, but maybe in the future before you slick talk elitist comments about who and what you ain’t, you’ll remember this reality check of a life experience.

    She is a prosecutor. It is her job to prosecute the accused. The judge or jury decides guilt or innocence.

  • Bushbabe

    It is not her job to withhold evidence from the defendants attorney and that is what she did. It is not her job as an AJ to use black and brown men as slave labor for the prison industry by keeping them in prison beyond thier sentence but she did. It is not her Job to come into someone's house and try and separate American parents from thier kids and enforce draconian truancy laws but she did. And the slap in the face is she advocates for human treatment for illegals and not the people she serves you degenerate.
