Many artists such as Sheck Wes, Tyga, Travis Scott, Cardi B and more have spoken out in support A$AP Rocky.
While speaking to reporters in the White House today, President Donald Trump discussed his plans to help rap star A$AP Rocky with his assault case in Sweden, which the East Harlem artist is now locked up for.
He said: "Just spoke to Kanye West about his friend A$AP Rocky's incarceration. To exemplify, prison staff and prisoners drink the same municipal tap water".
But the campaigning has so far fallen on deaf ears, with top Swedish prosecutor Petra Lundh offering no indication that he would be released as a result of the calls from America.
Trump told reporters on Friday he did not know Mayers but that "many members of the African-American community" sought his help for the rapper, who is black.
A court in Stockholm on Friday approved a request from prosecutors to hold ASAP Rocky in detention for at least six more days on the grounds he was a flight risk, the New York Times reported. We are going to be calling.
Referring to himself, A$AP Rocky added that authorities tried to arrest him and that he is "innocent". He was in Sweden to perform at a music festival. "They followed us for four blocks".
Meanwhile, although Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West have lobbied President Donald Trump to intervene in the situation, Swedish officials have insisted they have not had any communication with the White House.
He continued: "And when I say African American, I can really say from everybody in this country, because we are all one".
In April 2018, West tweeted, "You don't have to agree with trump but the mob can't make me not love him".
Kardashian West thanked Trump, Pompeo and Kushner via Twitter, along with "everyone involved with the efforts to Free ASAP Rocky & his two friends".
Democratic Reps. Adriano Espaillat and Hakeem Jeffries of New York, André Carson of IN and Joaquin Castro of Texas spoke out on Wednesday, alleging Rocky and his associates are suffering "human rights violations" and "inhumane conditions" while incarcerated, The Washington Post reported.
"We have been working intensively with the investigation and now need until Thursday next week to complete the preliminary investigation", prosecutor Daniel Suneson said in a statement.
