Nearly a month after he was arrested in Sweden, rapper A$AP Rocky returned to the United States as the verdict in an assault case against him and two other Americans looms.
Los Angeles television stations reported the artist was among a group of people shown emerging from a private airplane at Los Angeles International Airport in footage broadcast late Friday night. The 30-year-old whose real name is Rakim Mayers had flown out of Stockholm Arlanda Airport on Friday, the same day the trio learned they would be released while judges mull a verdict that’s expected Aug. 14.
Along with David Rispers Jr. and Bladimir Corniel, the rapper is accused of beating 19-year-old Mustafa Jafari on June 30, outside a fast-food restaurant in central Stockholm. Mayers, who had been jailed since his July 3 arrest, pleaded not guilty at the start of the three-day trial Tuesday.

A$AP Rocky got a HUGE assist Friday from 2 eyewitnesses to the beating that landed him in jail and Swedish criminal court.
The shocking video shows the moment right before 19-year-old Mustafa Jafari threw the punch that ultimately sparked the June 30th brawl in Stockholm with A$AP Rocky.
Wild video shows A$AP Rocky’s bodyguard choking the alleged victim from the rapper’s Sweden brawl just moments before chaos unfolded – and has left many wondering why the security detail wasn’t charged with a crime.

Jafari can be seen talking with the security personnel but very much-so in the guard’s space. It looks as if he touches the guard at some point.
A woman upset over rapper A$AP Rocky’s detention in Sweden allegedly threatened to “blow this motherf—– up” while inside the Swedish Embassy in Washington, D.C., earlier this week.
The suspect, identified as Rebecca Kanter, was arrested by Secret Service agents Tuesday after causing a chaotic scene inside the House of Sweden, the name for the embassy, authorities said. An affidavit alleges she began cursing and screamed at embassy personnel and a student tour group and kicked over a display and furniture.
Very disappointed in Prime Minister Stefan Löfven for being unable to act. Sweden has let our African American Community down in the United States. I watched the tapes of A$AP Rocky, and he was being followed and harassed by troublemakers. Treat Americans fairly! #FreeRocky— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 25, 2019
Give A$AP Rocky his FREEDOM. We do so much for Sweden but it doesn’t seem to work the other way around. Sweden should focus on its real crime problem! #FreeRocky— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 25, 2019

From museums to palaces, the best things to see and do in Stockholm, Sweden.
In what the Stockholmers call “the dark months,” folks tend to scurry to the next warm spot—although the Swedes pride themselves on getting out of the house for the grand tumble of things they have to do outdoors, not least of which, well north of town in Swedish Lapland, is the Aurora Borealis, or the Northern Lights. Swedes bivouac for that.
Similarly, since the northern Nordic peninsula is a place of extremes, they also camp out to get the brunt of the Midnight Sun as it circumnavigates the horizon. Down in the old royal and business precincts of the Stockholm, things proceed with a bit more normalcy.
There are, however, some very Swedish things to do in Stockholm. Continue at Source: Best Things To Do In Stockholm
The best luxury and boutique hotels in Stockholm, Sweden.
Stockholm is that classic northern archipelago town with its islands bound in some way to an idea of one city. But in daily life, the tumble of its 14 islands, and the islands lying immediately outside the city districts, operate almost as medieval city-states within the matrix.
The Swedish word holm means little island. It connotes an air of a haven, a cozy holding place or some kind of refuge, the ocean up here being what it is. The city of Stockholm is all of that and more.
Here are the most alluring hotels on Stockholm’s many islands: Continue at Source: The Best Hotels In Stockholm
