NY Congressman Says He ‘Will Fight Until A$AP Rocky Is Brought Back Home’

NY Congressman Says He ‘Will Fight Until A$AP Rocky Is Brought Back Home’

While a Change.org petition, calling for #JusticeforRocky, has gathered over 400,000 signatures within its first day, NY congressman Adriano Espaillat is working hard to help bring A$AP Rocky home.

Additionally, on Wednesday (July 10), the U.S. Rep. for NY’s Thirteenth Congressional District sent multiple letters to the U.S. State Department, U.S. Embassy in Sweden and the Swedish Ambassador in Washington, noting Rocky’s innocence and urging for justice.

Espaillat explains, “He’s part of a growing, young movement of artists that, first of all, I commend because they identify with the neighborhood where they live, which in this case is Harlem. Harlem is a neighborhood that is very special because Harlem is not just about the Apollo or 125th Street. It’s really about an attitude and a personality and a history and a legacy. And so, for him to be a young person and continue to identify with Harlem, and be a strong presence of the artist community in Harlem, is great. That’s why I’m going to bat for him.”
