The proceeds from the concert that A $ AP Rocky (31) will give in Stockholm next month go to a Swedish organization that assists asylum seekers. The rapper says in an interview with TMZ that during his month in a Swedish prison this summer he came across many asylum seekers who do not get the support they need.
“As a star I received worldwide publicity, I was assisted by the American embassy. But these people come from countries they don’t help. Some are in a cell for ten months to two years before they see a judge. I want to do something for them, “says the musician. That’s why A $ AP Rocky, actually called Rakim Mayers, is donating the proceeds of his concert in Stockholm next month to FARR, a Swedish organization that assists asylum seekers.
A $ AP Rocky is not afraid of returning to Sweden. The rapper says he is determined not to be intimidated by the Swedish authorities. “They don’t want us to come back. They want us to be scared and stay away. I think it’s brave that we don’t do that. “
The rapper was sentenced to a suspended prison sentence in August after a fight in the Swedish capital at the end of June. He also had to pay a compensation of 1100 euros to the 19-year-old victim, who suffered injuries at the blow.
