American rapper Rakim Mayers, better known by his stage name A$AP Rocky, will be detained in Swedish jail for at least two weeks, after local court ruled against granting him bail during a trial in Stockholm on Friday.
According to reports, bail was denied because the court considers the rapper a flight risk. Mayer's lawyer Henrik Olsson Lilja said that he was surprised with the decision and... Еще confirmed he will appeal it in the coming days.
«I really don't understand why the court would find that, because he is a very famous artist, of course, and he would be glad to come back to a court trail later on,» said Lilja.
The New York rapper-producer turned himself into the Swedish authorities on Wednesday after being accused of taking part in a street fight, in which a man was reportedly beaten. R
A$AP Rocky was in Sweden to perform at the Smash x Stadion hip-hop music festival.
