A$AP Rocky is getting a groundswell of support from fans on the ground in Sweden … posters calling for his release are popping up all over Stockholm, and people are snapping pics to bring attention to his plight.
Smash Fest, the music festival A$AP performed at days before he turned himself into police in Stockholm, has started a #JusticeForRocky campaign in the country’s capital … and festival honchos tell us they’ve printed out and put up thousands of posters that read, “FREE A$AP ROCKY ASAP.”
We’re told Smash Fest created the signage to show support for A$AP and urge Swedish authorities to release him … and people have been showing their support for the Harlem rapper by taking pics with the posters and posting them all over social media.
It’s interesting … we’re told many of the posters were taken down soon after going up, but Smash Fest printed new ones and replaced them almost immediately.
One A$AP supporter in Stockholm tells us he’s been walking around the city with a poster as a silent protest … and he says most people have been sympathetic and supportive.
Smash Fest tells us they stand with A$AP and they feel sorry for fans who will miss him this summer … as he’s already missing out on tons of previously scheduled shows across Europe.
A$AP remains in a Swedish jail … and later this week prosecutors are expected to formally charge him with aggravated assault.
