A $ AP Rocky also sees the benefits of his time in prison. The American rapper was in custody for a month in a prison in Sweden in 2019, but this also did a good job for his image, he says in an interview in WSJ Magazine.
In an interview in the March edition of the magazine, the rapper says that his time in prison also brought him something nice. Not only the young people, but also the older generation knows him. "Those people say: look, that A $ AP isn't really that bad."
The 31-year-old rapper, actually called Rakim Mayers, nevertheless experienced his time in custody as extremely difficult. The artist had the idea that because of his dark skin he was treated differently than white prisoners.
According to the rapper, fellow prisoners helped him to keep abreast of developments in his own case. "I regularly saw myself on television, but I didn't speak a word of Swedish."
Due to mistreatment of a 19-year-old man in Stockholm, A $ AP Rocky had to go to prison for a month last summer. Video footage surfaced showing that he hit and kicked a man. He also had to pay the victim compensation of 1100 euros.
