A$AP Rocky

Rapper BU$TED for

Brawl with Photogs

7/19/2012 9:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Rapper A$AP Rocky was taken into NYPD custody tonight after he allegedly put the smackdown on 2 guys who took pics of him ... TMZ has learned.

According to law enforcement sources ... A$AP Rocky, real name Rakim Mayers, had gotten into a verbal dispute with someone in downtown Manhattan, when 2 civilians started snapping photos of the incident.

We're told A$AP and a friend quickly turned their attention to the amateur photogs ... and a full-fledged fight erupted. Our sources say the two victims suffered cuts and bruises with one requiring treatment at a hospital.

We're told responding officers arrested AR ... and he's expected to be booked for attempted robbery. It's unclear, at this point, what he's accused of trying to pilfer.

Rocky is a native New Yorker and member of the hip hop group A$AP Mob. He was nominated for Best New Artist at the BET Awards this year.

clearly youre a dumbass if you dont know this rapper yet youre wasting your time commenting on his life and judging him, he's accomplished things more than half of you unintelligent bastards will ever do, if you listen to music you would know who he is and if you never heard of him GOOGLE it IDIOT instead of being comfortable enough in your stupidity.

just my opinion    

i like how all these losers keep typing "who"...they probably sit on tmz all day and night refreshing for a new story...when they don't know who the person being highlighted is they just can't resist commenting so they come up with gems such as, "who?"....are you kidding me? go to sleep. get a job. the seething jealousy some people have for "nobodies" who apparently have fame outside of their circle of knowledge is sad and deplorable might know who some of these people were if you had a social life, went to parties, heard music...talked to people...OFFLINE...there's more to life than the comment section of gossip blogs.

You have to be arrested at least once to be considered a rapper.

Every time a new emerging rapper is on here many white people say "who?" maybe if some of you cornballs would listen to a rap station one day of your life you may know who these people are! Just shows that many of you are out of the loop and under a rock. irrelevant!
