A$AP Rocky is looking to clear his name following a street brawl that took place between his crew against two others in Stockholm on Sunday night. Rocky took to Instagram on Tuesday (July 2) to explain the context of the incident with footage caught prior to the altercation turning physical.
“SO A FEW DRUG ADDICTS ARE NOT MY FANS , WE DONT KNOW THESE GUYS AND WE DIDNT WANT TROUBLE, THEY FOLLOWED US FOR 4 BLOCKS, AND THEY WERE SLAPPING GIRLS BUTTS WHO PASSED, GIVE ME A BREAK,” the Mob frontman wrote.
Video shows a pair of men following Rocky and his crew around the city, as his security guard repeatedly tells the two individuals to walk away. One then smashes his headphones on the guard’s head. The final straw seems to be a woman coming up to Rocky’s crew and accusing the same two men of touching them inappropriately.
“I’m innocent. They tryna arrest me out here now, smh,” the TESTING rapper commented on his own post. TMZ released video of the beatdown captured by witnesses walking the streets and those in surrounding Stockholm restaurants on Monday. Rocky doesn’t look to be involved in the actual fighting.
TMZ’s law enforcement sources say that a police report has been filed and there are no suspects as of press time, but police are actively investigating.
