  • A$AP ROCKY'S ATTACKER WON'T BE CHARGED

  • Tue, 23 Jul 2019 01:00:00 EST

    TMZ has reported that A$AP Rocky's attacker will not be charged. The unnamed man will not be prosecuted for any crime related to his involvement in the Stockholm street brawl that landed Rocky behind bars — despite there being video footage of him inciting violence and harassing the rapper and his crew before they fought back.

    Swedish prosecutors believe that the man who harassed Rocky acted in self-defense when he attacked the rapper's bodyguard after being pushed and lifted up by his neck. The video does not show a physical altercation, but prosectors have drawn that conclusion.

    In other news, A$AP Rocky will reportedly headline NYC's Rolling Loud festival. According to VIBE, per the festival's social media pages, Travis Scott, A$AP Rocky, Meek Mill, Lil Uzi Vert and the Wu-Tang Clan will reportedly headline the two day event in October. Other artists to perform include DMX, Fat Joe, Megan Thee Stallion, Rico Nasty, Young M.A., YG, DaBaby and more.

    Tickets go on sale on Friday (July 26th) at 10 a.m. EST.
