A$AP Rocky is heading back to Sweden next month.

The announcement comes four months after the Harlem spitter was arrested for having a street fight with some locals. Rocky's arrest made international news, with the Congressional Black Caucus, Donald Trump and several of Rocky's fellow rappers demanding his release.

The "L$D" rapper was accused of hitting a man with a bottle and was charged with assault and was jailed for a month as he awaited trial. The Swedish prosecutor allowed him to go home on August 2. Two weeks later -- while safely in the States -- he was convicted and sentenced to time served. Now he will return to Sweden a free man.

"After tremendous support from the Swedish fans, he returns to Stockholm for a long-awaited gig for all his supporters," said a rep for Live Nation in a statement on Friday.

The show will go down at the Ericsson Globe in Stockholm on Dec. 11. Some of the proceeds will go to the Swedish Network of Refugee Support Groups, a local nonprofit. Tickets will go on sale Nov. 12
