The news of A$AP Rocky’s arrest in Sweden has shaken the hip-hop world, with the #FREEFLACKO movement gaining a life of its own with celebrities and fans alike. Not only are many protesting the perceived injustice of Rocky‘s arrest, but fans are also becoming increasingly outraged over what this means for the rapper’s tour dates. Wireless Festival has notably revised their roster. In a statement on Twitter yesterday, they confirmed that East London rapper J Hus will be replacing Rocky.
ℹ️ We now know for sure that A$AP Rocky won’t be able to make his set tomorrow. We’ve been busy making calls….and now we’re hyped to say London’s J HUS is joining the line-up and Rae Sremmurd will close the show. ℹ️ pic.twitter.com/zgYhuNAfzB

This comes a year after the 22 year-old was forced to cancel his Wireless performance after his own arrest. He has since ended an eight-month jail sentence. The Grime star will, however, not be closing the show, that honor goes to Rae Sremmund.
