Rapper Tyga was slated to perform in Sweden this weekend, but he cancelled the show in support of A$AP Rocky, who is currently jailed in the country.
“I have decided to cancel my show,” he wrote in an Instagram story yesterday afternoon. “I will not be performing in Sweden this Sunday, July 14.” He signed the note with the hashtag #freeasaprocky in support of the rapper, who he had just appeared with on the track “On GOD” with A$AP Ferg and YG.
Rocky was arrested in the country on July 1 on suspicion of assault, causing him to cancel his remaining festival appearances and tour dates in Europe this month. Tyga joins a slew of artists who have spoken out in support of A$AP Rocky, including A$AP Ferg, who told fans last week to keep the rapper in their prayers.
Currently, Tyga is on tour in support of his 2019 record Legendary, and is set to stop next in Berlin before heading back to the states for a handful of shows this fall. He is best-known for the track “Taste” with Migos’ Offest, along with the single “SWISH.” Grab tickets to see Tyga on tour this year via Ticket Club.
