“Y’all know how happy I am to be here right now, I wanna say this though. When I was away what I experienced was crazy…. It was a scary, humbling experience but I’m here right now. God is good. People who ain’t even fuck with me felt sympathy,” he said. “People was praying for me, that uplifted me when my spirits was low. I can’t thank y’all enough, man, that was crazy. Hip-hop never looked so strong together.”
Rocky could face a sentence of up to two years for the assault case. The prosecution is seeking a 6-10 month jail sentence if he’s convicted.
