American rapper A$AP Rocky is expected to testify Thursday in Sweden in his assault trial. This case has attracted the attention of President Donald Trump.
The 30-year-old Grammy-nominated artist, whose real name is Rakim Mayers, was brought to the Stockholm District Court Thursday wearing an all-green inmate’s outfit.
Rocky has been holed up in prison along with two other suspects since July 3 following the alleged June 30 beating of 19-year-old Mustafa Jafari in the Swedish capital.
The Harlem-born rapper and the other two men charged in the incident, Bladimir Emilio Corniel and David Tyrone Rispers, pleaded not guilty at the start of the trial Tuesday.
Rocky has insisted he acted in self-defense.
If convicted, the rapper faces up to two years in prison.
