A$AP, real name, Rakim Mayers, may have to wait another two weeks before his trial starts.
The Swedish prosecutor just boasted he had access to more information than people on the internet. He said he’s reviewed video and also talked to witnesses, and determined the claims by Rocky and his 2 crew members of self defense and provocation didn’t hold water, despite the fact the alleged victim is the one who unrelentingly harassed and attacked Rocky and his crew first.
The prosecutor says he also considered the alleged victim’s statement, which he says was supported by witness statements. We’re told the alleged victim admits striking A$AP’s bodyguard with a set of headphones, but only after the bodyguard lifted him off the ground by his neck, so the prosecutor viewed the headphones attack as self defense. BTW, the lifting by the neck is not on video, and interestingly, if the prosecutor really felt the bodyguard was the aggressor he would have been presumably charged … and the bodyguard has already been cleared.
If convicted, A$AP Rocky faces up to 2 years in jail.
A$AP Ferg took to social media on Wednesday and said he spoke to Rocky and he’s in good spirits despite his circumstances.
