As Swedish officials decide whether to charge ASAP Rocky with aggravated assault following an incident he says started from two men harassing him, some rappers have decided to cancel their tours in the country indefinitely.

Tyler, The Creator spoke out on Twitter and stated: “no more Sweden for me, ever.”

ScHoolboy Q chimed in: “I’m not goin nomo eitHer… #FLACKO”

“Me 3 will never hit Sweden again… #freeflacko,” Lil Yachty wrote on Twitter.

EarthGang added, “#FreeFlacko or we boycotting Sweden.”

Soon after, T.I took the conversation over to Instagram: “Welp…There it is… Sweden’s now officially outside of the culture on the NO GO list!!!
Until they #FreeFlacko It’s UP!!!!”

The rappers’ reaction comes after Rocky was arrested in Stockholm on July 2, just days after a fight broke out between two groups of men, as reported in HipHopDX.

Rocky is currently being held for two weeks in a Swedish jail in connection with the alleged incident where he’s reportedly facing inhumane conditions at a “disease-ridden” facility, according to a report from TMZ.

Sources told the media outlet, “Rocky is being forced to sleep on a yoga mat without any blankets near a prisoner in the next cell with severe mental issues who slams his head against the concrete wall and hurls feces every which way.”

In addition, drinking water and food are reportedly “inedible.”

If convicted, Rocky could face up to six years behind bars.
