RZA says A$AP Rocky is hostage in Swe­den

The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - Stay Connected -

RZA of the Wu-Tang Clan says he’s con­cerned over what he calls a hostage sit­u­a­tion for fel­low rap­per A$AP Rocky, who’s charged with as­sault in Swe­den.

RZA told The As­so­ci­ated Press at an event Fri­day pro­mot­ing the Hulu drama se­ries “Wu-Tang: An Amer­i­can Saga” that he doesn’t con­done vi­o­lence, but celebri­ties have to pro­tect them­selves, and Rocky is not dan­ger­ous or a crim­i­nal.

He says he’s “dis­ap­pointed in Swe­den” and “dis­ap­pointed that a judge can­not dis­cern that this is not a man you hold hostage.”

Swedish pros­e­cu­tors say Rocky and two others at­tacked a man there. Rocky says he acted in self-de­fense. He’s been in cus­tody since July 3.
