According to TMZ, the 30-year-old rapper is sleeping on a yoga mat with no blankets in a facility that is filthy and "disease ridden".
Whether or not this sways Swedish authorities to give A$AP Rocky his freedom until he gets his day in court remains to be seen.
The source called the behaviour of the Swedish authorities "a clear intimidation tactic".
The rapper can now be held in jail for two weeks while officials investigate, which can be extended following another hearing.
While a treaty between Sweden and the U.S. grants Rocky the right to immediately see an official from the U.S. Consulate, insiders say the American Consulate that Rocky arranged a meeting with was denied access to the detention center where the rapper is being held at.
The rapper, who is in the midst of a European tour, has already been forced to cancel shows in Norway, Poland, Ireland and Britain because of the arrest. Travis Scott chanted for Rocky's release during the Wireless Music Festival in London where Rocky was scheduled to attend over the 4th of July weekend.
