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.

I'm black and I LOVE reading the racist comments on all the internet site comment sections. I really waste a lot of time reading them everyday but it's kinda addictive lol

SHUT UP with the "slick", racial, ignorant comments. This guy is awesome. Done a lot of break out things already. He's been in a Lana Del Rey Video, gonna be on Fallon tonight. He's 23, young and building his career. Obviously you guys' brain's arent quite developed yet. PLEASE REALIZE, Rocky isnt the first celebrity to disapprove of photogs snapping a pic of him. So why say the upmost ignorant things' in response to this post?? Just shut up and get a life. If you dont know who he is, then that just means you're closed minded and don't know his style of music. Which ALSO means, WHY DID YOU EVEN CLICK ON THIS STORY...youdumbf*ck -_-.
