ASAP Rocky Performs With Tyler, The Creator and More at First Performance Since Being Arrested in Sweden
Three days before the verdict for his Sweden assault trial is announced, A$AP Rocky takes the stage at the 2019 Real Street Festival.
Rocky opened things up by performing what he says is a new song. On the track, he raps about people being mad about his status in the world and more.
At one point during his performance, which saw him perform at least one new song, Rocky brought his good pal Tyler, The Creator onto the stage. For their time on the stage, Rocky and Tyler performed "Who Dat Boy," which is a single from Tyler's 2017 album, Flower Boy. He also shocked the crowd with surprise appearances from YG and his brethren A$AP Ferg.
"I just want to say, what I experienced it’s crazy," Rocky told the crowd. "I’m so happy to be here y’all don’t even understand. I'm so happy to be here right now. That was a scary, humbling experience, but I'm here right now god is good."
Rocky was arrested on suspicion of assault on July 3. He turned himself in shortly after footage of him and his crew fighting a man in the streets of Stockholm, Sweden went viral. In the aftermath of his arrest, people from across the hip-hop community—and in the White House—called for his release.
On Friday, Aug. 2, Rocky was released from police custody. While Rocky has maintained that he and his crew were acting in self-defense, prosecutors believe he and his team used excessive force and they want the rapper to be sentenced to six months in prison. The verdict will be announced on Wednesday (Aug. 14).
