A$ap Rocky recently was arrested on assault charges while in Sweden and while prosecutors still decide whether to charge him with aggravated assault. Meanwhile, several rappers are now coming forward boycotting their Swedish tour schedules.
Tyler The Creator was one such artist hopping on Twitter to let fans know his plans saying “no more Sweden for me, ever,”. Schoolboy Q also decided to chime in writing “I’m not goin nomo eitHer…#FLACKO.” T.I. would also add to the post with his comments saying, “Welp…There it is…Sweden’s now officially outside of the culture on the NO GO list!!! Until they @FreeFlacko it’s UP!!!”
Lil Yachty and Earthgang would also later follow suit boycotting the country, “Me 3 will never hit Sweden again… #freeflacko,” Yachty wrote, while EarthGang tweeted, “#FreeFlacko or we boycotting Sweden.”

The tweets are in the wake of A$ap Rocky being arrested in Stockholm last Tuesday (July 2), two days after a fight broke out between two groups of men. In the video captured of the melee, Rocky and his entourage attack a man who’d been harassing them over a pair of broken headphones.
It’s being reported that Swedish authorities are keeping the Harlem native for at least two weeks. Swedish prosecutors have already released Rocky’s bodyguard due to “insufficient evidence,” but won’t release Rocky.
