G-Eazy Claims Sweden’s Treatment Of A$AP Rocky Proves White Privilege And Systematic Racism

G-Eazy is the latest hip hop star to vocalize support for A$AP Rocky in an effort to draw more attention to the quest to get him out of a Swedish Prison.

In fact, G-Eazy knows about Sweden’s justice system first hand, after being arrested in the Country In 2018.

The rapper posted a message about the obvious double standard in treatment.

“Facts. This is the sad truth … The difference between me and Rocky’s treatment and process in Sweden brings to mind two concepts that disgustingly go hand in hand: white privilege and systematic racism.” 

He continued, “Let’s call it what it is. He should not be behind bars right now. My heart goes out to my brother @asaprocky and his team. We’re riding for y’all. #JusticeForRocky #FreeRocky.”

According to TMZ, G-Eazy was arrested in Sweden in 2018 for assault, possession of drugs and use of narcotics. There was no video of the attack and prosecutors allowed him to strike a deal, a day-and-a-half after the incident.

He pleaded guilty to violent resistance, a crime of violence against an official and illegal drug possession. His sentence — a $10k fine and probation. He was also ordered to pay the security guard $900. He was then allowed to leave the country.

While, A$AP faces 6 years in prison for his alleged assault, G-Eazy spend less than 2 days behind bars.

As news of the two rappers glaring disparities in treatment spreads, Jada Pinkett Smith even tweeted a message to Sweden.
