A$AP and his crew did indeed attack a man on the streets July 1, but only after the man harassed and physically attacked A$AP and a bodyguard and allegedly grabbed a woman's butt. He is now being held in solitary confinement.

TMZ first reported the fight. Rocky could be held in prison until he is due to stand trial in mid-August.

The rap legend said claims "the Black community needs this" and even told Kanye "tell your woman to get him out". "I will tell you one secret: Sweden had us down on the curb almost as soon as we landed", he told the outlet. Soon as we went to Sweden, they had me and my cameraman on the curb. "It is what it is, but Sweden real tough".

Rapper Travis Scott shouted "Free Rocky" at a recent London concert where ASAP Rocky had been scheduled to perform.

On Tuesday, the same day a Change.org petition calling for Rocky's release surpassed 600,000 signatures, TMZ shared an interview with Rep. Hakeem Jeffries of NY about Rocky's legal troubles, calling them "outrageous" and promising further action.

Rev. Al Sharpton released a press release, along with his National Action Network, calling on members of Congress to demand the State Department not only intervene but also allow Sharpton to visit Rocky as a minister. "I don't wanna talk about no fucking Ferguson and shit because I don't live over there!" It's really about an attitude and a personality and a history and a legacy. "That's why I'm going to bat for him". A defense lawyer has said it was self-defense.
