A$AP Rocky remains locked up in Sweden after denied appeal

Yes, it certainly looks like a rocky future for ASAP Rocky.

Chris Brown took to Instagram to let his fans know he is supporting A$AP Rocky. "They followed us for four blocks".

A number of notable artists and celebrities are speaking out to show support for rapper A$AP Rocky after news broke of his July 2 arrest and subsequent detainment in a Swedish prison.

"... We filed an appeal with the Swedish Supreme Court to have Rocky released from the inhumane conditions and the clear violation of human rights", the petition reads.

In the wake of his legal plight, Rocky also had to cancel several festival dates on his United Kingdom tour. This means that the hip hop star will lose about $1 million.

A$AP Rocky has been in a jail since July, and sources who have been there have described the facility as "disease-ridden" and 'like walking into a toilet, ' TMZ reported Tuesday.

The tensions stem from a TMZ report in which sources close to the MC's case told the news organization of feces tossed around by a neighboring inmate with mental issues, terrible food, as well as having to sleep on a yoga mat, being fed only an apple daily and given dirty drinking water. Furthermore, insiders claimed 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".

Because of filthy water and inedible food, the rapper only ate one apple each of the first five days in custody.

"I am able to talk about the general conditions in the remand prison which apply to all prisoners".

Friends of ASAP Rocky, likeScHoolboy Q, Tyler, Lil Yachty and The Creator, have said that they are going to boycott Sweden.

After being arrested on the assault charges, Rocky has been detained and is being held for two more weeks before receiving a trial.
