A$AP Rocky is back in the United States after being locked up in Sweden over an assault charge.

According to a new report from Yahoo!

News, when the rapper (his real name is Rakim Mayers) was released and allowed to return to the US upon the conclusion of his trial on August 2, Trump associates Darrell Scott and Kareem Lanier - an OH pastor and the co-chairman of the Urban Revitalization Coalition, respectively, who've become a regular presence at the White House at events focused on addressing African-American issues - said they began reaching out to the rapper's team within hours of the rapper's release.

A$AP Rocky, whose real name is Rakim Mayers, spent almost a month in jail in Sweden after being involved in a street fight in Stockholm on June 30, because the court viewed Mayers and two associates as flight risks. Since being freed and returning to the States, however, Rocky has reportedly ghosted the White House, effectively declining to publicly thank the Trump administration. Rocky's team became harder to contact, and when the rapper was found guilty of assault on August 14 but spared further jail time, he once again chose not to thank the President - whose impact on the case isn't really hinted at here or anywhere except on his own Twitter page - and that pissed Scott and Lanier off. When they finally spoke with Ehmann, Scott said the manager made excuses for Rocky insisting he needed time to travel and rest. "There were no conditions attached, but my condition and Kareem's condition was that all I'm asking for you guys to do is say thank you", Scott told Yahoo! he stressed to the rapper's manager.

Trump takes aim at automakers that ignored his emissions proposal
There is nothing in the administration's proposed revisions that would result in engines running more smoothly. The deal permits automakers' electric vehicle sales to earn them credits toward the overall goals.

A few days after Mayers was arrested, two Trump allies - Darrell Scott, a pastor, and Kareem Lanier, co-chairman of Scott's nonprofit, the Urban Revitalization Coalition - got involved in the case.

Two of President Donald Trump's closest allies in the African American community helped facilitate the president's role in pressuring Sweden to release rapper A$AP Rocky from jail this month.

Rocky apparently wouldn't even thank the White House behind the scenes.

"All he had to do was do a two-minute call to say thank you", said Scott. "We just want you guys to be appreciative and say thank you". I appreciate it, ' in private. Trump kept tweeting as Rocky sat in jail for two more weeks.
