Harlem rapper A$AP Rocky has taken to Instagram to speak out regarding the guilty trial verdict in his Sweden assault trial. 

“I am of course disappointed by today’s verdict,” Rocky wrote on Wednesday (Aug. 15) as the caption of a photo of himself holding a cup.

“I want to say thanks again for all of my fans, friends, and everyone who showed me love during this difficult time. Imma keep moving forward. Thank you to my team, my management, attorneys, label and everyone who advocated for justice.”

The Harlem rapper was on trial for his participation in a street fight that took place on June 30 in Stockholm.

The “Praise The Lord” rapper wasn’t obligated to serve any more jail time, as he already served over a month in jail in a Swedish detention center.
