The brawl that landed A$AP Rocky in handcuffs this past summer has the Harlem rapper now facing an assault lawsuit. As reported earlier, A$AP Rocky was arrested in July 2012 for attacking two unidentified men who were taking pictures of him and A$AP Bigga.
The two men claimed that A$AP Rocky and A$AP Bigga Bar$ confronted them and physically attacked them for taking pictures of them while they were in a confrontation with a person identified as Shenick Alcine.
According to TMZ, the lawsuit was filed by Shenick Alcine who claims the attack happened at a clothing store. Alcine claims he saw A$AP Rocky taking drugs before he was attacked. He also says that A$AP Rocky noticed he was being filmed by the two men and then proceeded to attack them.
A$AP Rocky’s camp has yet to comment on the lawsuit. Last month, A$AP Rocky plead guilty to attempted grand larceny for trying to take the cameras from the men. He was also facing charges of attempted robbery in the 2nd degree and assault but those charges were dropped in exchange for the guilty plea.
In related news, A$AP Rocky will be releasing his debut album Long. Live. ASAP on January 15. The album will feature appearances from Schoolboy Q, Drake, 2 Chainz, Kendrick Lamar, Joey Bada$$, YelaWolf, Danny Brown, Action Bronson, and Big K.R.I.T.
