A few rappers are promising to put Sweden on the “no go” list for tour dates in response to ASAP Rocky’s arrest in the foreign country, and recent reports about the conditions he’s being kept in. 

The New York rapper is facing up to six years in jail after a brawl was captured on camera involving ASAP Rocky and his team on June 30 with a man on the street. He was arrested and is being held without bond in solitary confinement, according to a social media post by the rapper’s labelmate A$AP Ferg. 

On Monday, Tyler The Creator tweeted out “no more sweden for me, ever” to show solidarity for Rocky’s circumstances.

Rapper ScHoolboy Q retweeted Tyler’s sentiments saying “I’m not going nomo either… #FLACKO.”

The tweets quickly went viral and prompted T.I. to join the movement, sharing the posts on his Instagram page with the caption “

According to Ferg, ASAP Rocky, whose real name is Rakim Meyers, hasn’t been allowed to make any  phone calls and isn’t allowed visitors. 

A court date was set for two weeks after the arrest. 

The 30-year-old rapper’s attorney has since filed an appeal challenging the court’s decision to hold Rocky without bond, but the request was denied by Sweden’s Supreme Court, according to Agence France-Presse. 

“He was no way in form the aggressor in this ordeal. Pray for justice #freeflacko,” wrote Ferg. 

Originally from Harlem, ASAP Rocky released his debut mixtape “Long. Live. A$AP” in 2011. 

Rocky and his camp were in Sweden as a part of a European summer tour to promote his most recent project “Testing.”
