A$AP Rocky is making an about face. 

The rapper, who once vowed never to return to Sweden, will now headline a concert there. 

The announcement comes just two months after he was released from jail in Stockholm, TMZ reports. 

In a statement obtained by Billboard, Live Nation announced that Rocky will perform at the Ericsson Globe on December 11. 

The Swedish Network of Refugee Support Group is behind the concert. The organization works on behalf of those working to support those seeking asylum.

A$AP Rocky spent much of the summer in a Swedish prison after an incident in Stockholm on Jun. 30. 

Video showed Rocky and his entourage getting into an argument with a man on the street, after A$AP threw a bottle at a man who was reportedly antagonizing him.

Although Rocky’s team claimed self defense, a Swedish court found Rocky guilty in August. Rocky was eventually given a suspended sentence, and paid fines before his release.
