According to reports, Rocky will likely remain in a Swedish prison until his court date which is expected to be sometime in August. Furthermore, insiders claim there is a prisoner in the cell next to Rocky's who has "severe mental issues who slams his head against the concrete wall and hurls feces every which way".

American rapper ASAP Rocky, now detained in Stockholm suspected of assault, has appealed his detention to Sweden's Supreme Court, his lawyer said Monday, as other musicians called for his release.

To make matters worse, sources say the rapper is being held in deplorable conditions.

Part of the video shows Rocky and the young men arguing, and efforts by Rocky and his companions to avoid a confrontation. TMZ reports that he is being held for two weeks "while prosecutors decide whether to charge him for aggravated assault".

If that wasn't enough, the facility is filthy and "disease ridden". Court proceedings in Sweden are closed to the public and the media. They ask the two young men to stop following them several times but the young men keep following them even after English-speaking individuals intervene and try to dissuade them.

Rocky, real name Rakim Mayers, is reportedly facing up to six years behind bars, after the Supreme Court rejected his appeal for bail.

A$AP reportedly voluntarily gave himself up to the police, and was immediately arrested and kept in solitary confinement "with no visit or phone call privileges". Rocky eventually met with the official two days later but was not able to do so privately.

Per the Vienna Convention For Consular Relations, Rocky is entitled to speak to his country's consulate.

Met with much support from his fellow Hip-Hop stars, ASAP Ferg, Tyler The Creator, ScHoolboy Q and more, they have vowed to not return to Sweden due to Rocky's arrest.

Last Friday, A$AP Mob's A$AP Ferg jumped on Instagram to explain how much of a legal nightmare Rocky faces for an incident he believes he's 100 percent innocent in.
