    Rocky, a platinum-selling, Grammy-nominated artist whose real name is Rakim Mayers, has been behind bars since early this month as police investigate the fight in Stockhol.

    Prosecutors in Sweden are dropping the investigation of a man they say was involved in a fight with American rapper A$AP Rocky.

    Magnus Stromberg represents the alleged victim and says they are happy but not surprised by the decision.

    Rocky, a platinum-selling, Grammy-nominated artist whose real name is Rakim Mayers, has been behind bars since early this month as police investigate the fight in Stockholm. It was not clear who else was involved, but videos published on social media appear to show a person being violently thrown onto the ground by Rocky.

    Prosecutors have until Thursday to make a decision on the investigation. Rocky's lawyer says they will not comment until Thursday.

    The case has drawn attention of celebrities including Sean "Diddy" Combs, Nicki Minaj, Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West.
