A$AP Rocky is back in action.
On Sunday, the rapper took the stage at the Real Street Festival in California, his first performance since being released from a Swedish prison and returning home to the United States.
“[I’m] happy to be here right now,” Rocky, 30, said as the crowd erupted. “I’m so happy to be here right now. That was a scary, humbling experience, but I’m here right now. God is good.”
Rocky returned to the US in early August after spending a month behind bars on assault charges. The Grammy nominee, whose real name is Rakim Mayers, went on trial in Sweden following a street brawl in late June. A judge will announce a verdict in the case on Wednesday.
Rocky said during Sunday’s show that he is grateful for all the support he received during the ordeal in Sweden.
“People was praying for me, that uplifted me when my spirits was low. I can’t thank y’all enough, man, that was crazy, thank you so much,” he said from the stage. “Hip-hop never looked so strong together. We a big, strong community, man, thank you.”
