ASAP was arrested on July 3 after a video shot.
Two other men who were with them at that time were also charged with assault. The musician says his band was followed by a group of men and he acted in self-defense.
Donald Trump said last week that he spoke with Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven for the case of ASAP. the president said he was "very disappointed" by Mr Lofven that he was "incapable of acting" and called him "to treat the Americans fairly." independent, the government was not allowed to influence court proceedings and "everyone is equal before the law."
Daniel Sanson, the Swedish prosecutor in charge of the case, said he had not spoken to representatives of the White House or representatives of the Swedish government while investigating the case.
He added there was "a clear risk that these three suspects would leave the country if they were released."
On Wednesday, the rapper's mother asks for the release of her son. Renee Black told the Swedish newspaper Expressen that ASAP "is not eating properly".
Other celebrities like Kim Kardashian West and Kani West also called for the release of ASAP. More than 500,000 people, including fellow artists Nicki Minaj and Post Malone, signed an online petition calling for the rapper to be released on bail.
The process should begin on July 30th.
