A$AP Rocky’s mom has given an update on the rapper’s current state of mind, and she’s now convinced his detention in Sweden is a race issue.
Speaking to TMZ, Renee Black said she’d spoken only once to her son since his arrest. “He sounded ok, he sounded alright considering the circumstances,” she told the gossip website. "But he wanna come home.”
Rocky (real name Rakim Mayers) has been held in custody without charges since the start of the month, due to his involvement in a fight on the streets of Stockholm, the capital. Videos circulated on social media appear to show a man being violently tossed by the hip-hop artist, though his lawyer has said his client was acting in self-defense.
