The movie – which also features the likes of Naomi Campbell, Tyler the Creator and Kim Kardashian West – documents Rocky’s rise to fame, including his infamous stint in solitary confinement in a Swedish prison in July 2019 but the Excuse Me hitmaker insisted he didn’t want it to be a ‘pity party’.

He said: ‘I think making a documentary is all about vulnerability. The documentary is all about showing honesty, authenticity, purity.

‘I just wanted to tell my story without really complaining or without, you know, seeming like a victim, or like I wanted a pity party or what not. So, here it is.’

And now Rocky is looking forward to the future, with Rihanna by his side.

He said: ‘What’s next for me was what I was doing before I went to prison. Me and the prettiest muthaf***** ever, we breaking headlines and making history with creativity.

The Praise the Lord hitmaker recently admitted the ‘Diamonds’ singer is ‘the one’ and his life is so much better with her around.

He gushed: ‘The love of my life. My lady. It’s so much better. So much better when you got the one. She amounts to probably, like, a million of the other ones. I think when you know, you know. She’s the one.’

 The 32-year-old rapper looked dapper in a well-tailored black double-breasted suit as he attended the premiere of his documentary at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York City’s Battery Park on Sunday.

Rocky’s film, which is directed by The Architects, traces his early years and stratospheric rise to become one of the most acclaimed rappers working today.

But the film’s title is derived form an 2019 incident in Stockholm, Sweden, in which he was arrested for aggravated assault, which was later reduced to simple assault.

The songwriter, along with his bodyguard and members of his entourage, were accused of assaulting a man named Mustafa Jafari.

Rocky later published videos of the incident, although they were reportedly edited and missing footage apparently showing his bodyguard scuffling with the man.

While in prison awaiting trial, American musicians and celebrities advocated for his release, and former President Donald Trump tweeted his support for him and sent his Special Envoy for Hostage Affairs to observe the trial.

Rocky was eventually convicted and given a suspended sentence, though he had to pay around $1,270 to the victim. 

After his release, he opted not to appeal the verdict, though the international conviction later prevented him from entering Canada for a performance.
