ABC/Randy HolmesIt’s a small but mighty victory for A$AP Rocky, as a judge in his highly-publicized Swedish assault case has ordered the rapper to be released from custody, ABC News has learned.
Following a long day in court Friday, Rocky, born Rakim Mayers, was granted his freedom and the right to return to the U.S. as he awaits an official verdict in the case. Sentencing will occur on August 14.
President Donald Trump, who had attempted to get Rocky released a few weeks ago, tweeted, “A$AP Rocky released from prison and on his way home to the United States from Sweden. It was a Rocky Week, get home ASAP A$AP!”
