New York rapper A$AP Rocky is reportedly being held in inhumane conditions in a Swedish jail. He is being kept in a filthy cell in a “disease ridden” environment that is not fit for humans, according to sources with knowledge of the situation that spoke with TMZ.

A$AP Rocky (whose birth name is Rakim Mayers) is said to be sleeping on a yoga mat with no blanket, and he is being served “wretched food” and water that is not clean. According to the sources, the food and water were so bad that A$AP Rocky ate only one apple a day during his first five days in the cell.

Rocky’s cell is reportedly next to another inmate apparently suffering severe mental health issues. The inmate hits his head against the wall and throws feces around the place and the feces are not cleaned up.

Why is A$AP Rocky in Swedish police custody?

Rocky is reportedly being held by Swedish police while prosecutors review available evidence to determine whether to charge him for aggravated assault. He is being held after a court determined that he was a flight risk. But Rocky’s lawyer Henrik Olsson Lilja said  he only engaged the young men in self-defense

A video uploaded by TMZ shows  A$AP and his crew in a fight on the streets of central Stockholm. Their opponents had complained that one of Rocky’s companions broke their headphones.
