Rapper Dave East has spoken out in support of incarcerated rapper, ASAP Rocky but added that he would not be boycotting Sweden.

"We Black, we got tats, braids, we smell like weed. But we got money so... anybody that's not used to that is gonna have something to say, he told TMZ.

But he made it clear that he is open to those Swedish coins:

 "If Sweden got money for me, I'm out there," East stated. Check out the video below. 

On Saturday President Trump tweeted that he had "a very good call" with Prime Minister Stefan Lofven and "offered to personally vouch for his bail."

The president added: "So, I personally don't know ASAP Rocky, but I can tell you that he has tremendous support from the African American community in this country and when I say African American I think I can really say from everybody in the country because we're all one."

But Lofven said that he would not interfere with the process:

"I will explain that the Swedish judicial system is independent," he said ahead of the call with the president. "In Sweden, everyone is equal before the law, and this includes visitors from other countries."
