A$AP Rocky at Pitchfork Festival last weekend (more by Fred Pessaro // BBG)
ASAP Rocky

TMZ reports that A$AP Rocky, who was supposed to perform on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon tonight, was arrested in NYC last night after attacking two amateur photographers that tried to take pictures of him during a "verbal dispute with someone." One of the photographers was taken to the hospital and both suffered cuts and bruises. Rocky was then arrested and is "expected to be booked for attempted robbery." We're confused by that last part too.

Brawling seems to be a recurring thing for the NYC rapper.

A$AP is scheduled to play the Catalpa Festival in NYC next week.

UPDATE: the fight apparently happened around Rivington and Orchard, and you can see a picture of Rocky in cuffs below...

Talentless hack. Why would anyone even eant to take pictures of him. I'd rather photograph some random person on the street.

Dude's a less-than-mediocre rapper who raps about the same old shit and tries to keep up a tough guy persona. He doesn't stand for anything, really (purple, swag, flacko...shit is fucking nonsense, bruh). And his staying power is waning by the day. Hope to stop hearing about him soon.

moron!

I'm not confused at all by the last part. I'm sure he tried to take their money after attacking them. That's what they do.

I am a white person and I am afraid of this person.

(1st) 10:03: Totally agree, obviously. Especially about the tough guy part and the "hope to stop hearing about him soon" part.

I like how Da Rock be backin up his shit. Not like all you racist hiptards sitting in front of your computer screens.

And I like how you wrote "be backin" even though you clearly understand how to speak English.

oh no!!

Is he ok?!?!?!

I hope the Bruised Boy was not in attendance. Witnessing the melee with Mr. Rocky could set back his recovery tenfold.

Need we remind 12:54 about the badly bruised boy at the Black Lips show?

Posted by Anonymous | July 20, 2012 1:02 PM

this dude looks like he might weigh 150 pounds holding a 2 liter of grape soda. Why would anyone be afraid of him?

What is so confusing about the attempted theft comment? He was mad they tried to take his picture, isn't it a reasonable assumption that he attempted to steal their cameras?

what kinda pussies go to the hospital for "cuts and bruises"...sounds like ppl trying to cash in by getting a hospital stay on record.

^ damn skippy. That's what happens when a country stops focussing on building and growing things and instead becomes enamored with being famous and litigation.
(1) Kill your television
(2) Close 75% of US law schools

To clear up a little something, NY was NEVER onsale at arcadefire.com today. I was refreshing all morning and it wasn't there. Whether it was ever supposed to be or not is the confusion. Merge said it would and neither they nor Arcade Fire has said anything to clear that up.
