Attention white rappers and other influencers in or related to hip-hip and rap entertainment, this is how you use the social capital which you have as a white person in this world. A great case in point is G-Eazy. The Bay Area rapper took to Instagram showing his support for A$AP Rocky who is still sitting in a Swedish jail for defending himself and his friends. G-Eazy cited racism and white privilege, calling out the Swedish justice system for how they’re handling A$AP’s case in comparison to his run-in with the law when he got in trouble.
As A$AP Rocky rots in a Swedish jail for weeks without being charged with a crime, you gotta wonder how another rapper — a white rapper — accused of the same crime and more spent a relative nanosecond behind bars before being allowed to go on his merry way and leave the country.
You may recall a story TMZ broke a year ago in May, when G-Eazy was arrested in Stockholm after punching a security guard in a club and snorting coke using a $100 bill.
G-Eazy was arrested for assault, possession of drugs and use of narcotics. There was no video of the attack, yet prosecutors allowed him to strike a deal a day-and-a-half later … he pled 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 $900.
That was it … G-Eazy was allowed to leave the country, no muss, no fuss.
Now, compare that to A$AP. There’s VIDEO of the assault — actually 2 videos, the other being the alleged victim assaulting Rocky first — yet prosecutors and the judge have kept him in jail for more than 2 weeks as they continue to “investigate” and decide if he’ll be charged. As we reported, prosecutors mistakenly played their hand Friday and said he was going to get indicted.
A$AP faces 6 years in prison for his alleged assault. G-Eazy spend less than 2 days behind bars.
