COPENHAGEN, Denmark — Sweden’s prison board says American rapper A$AP Rocky will not be able to perform in the Swedish prison where he was held until convicted of assault in a June street brawl in Stockholm.

Citing logistical and security issues, Vilhelm Grevik of Sweden’s Prison and Probation Service told the Swedish daily Svenska Dagbladet on Wednesday, that the prison board will not be able to organize a concert in the Kronoberg prison.


In August, A$AP Rocky, whose real name is Rakim Mayers, was convicted of assault. The rapper and his two bodyguards were given “conditional sentences,” meaning they will not serve prison time unless they commit a similar offense in the future.
