    A$AP Rocky has delivered meals to a homeless shelter where he once lived

    The 'Praise the Lord (Da Shine)' hitmaker personally hand delivered 120 meals to the Regent Family Residence, where him and his mother once lived, on the eve of Thanksgiving with the help of one of his favourite local restaurants, Amy Ruth's Restaurant


    The homeless shelter currently caters for 83 families, including 111 kids, TMZ reports.

    Meanwhile, A$AP Rocky previously revealed how "hilarious" he thinks it is that "old folks" know who he is now because of his imprisonment in Sweden last summer.

    The 31-year-old rapper spent a month in jail in Stockholm last summer when he was arrested following a street altercation, and was later found guilty of assault but he's found a silver lining in the situation.

    He said: "All these old folks know who A$AP Rocky is now. It's hilarious. Old folks be like, 'That A$AP Rocky kid ain't too bad, huh?'"

    Rocky - who returned to the US after being released from prison in August - admitted he was treated like "s**t" when he was first put behind bars.

    He said: "When I first got there, the guards treated me like s**t. You had crazy people yelling, echoing, screaming in the middle of the night."

    The rapper was eventually moved to nicer quarters but claimed non-white detainees were treated very differently to their fellow inmates.

    He said: "They want to bore you to death. There'd be one chance to talk to the other inmates, for like 30 minutes, up on the roof in the morning. They'd tell me what was going on with my case, because I could see my face on TV in my cell but I don't understand Swedish. It was f*****, man. I had worldwide coverage, and it still took me a month! People in there were telling me, 'I haven't spoken to my mother in a year. I haven't seen a judge.' And it was only black and brown people."

    Rocky was taken into custody on July 2 for his involvement in a fight prior to a music festival.

    After a high-profile trial, he was found guilty of assault and was ordered to pay $1,300 compensation to his 19-year-old victim, Mustafa Jafari.
