Rapper A$AP Rocky -- the guy behind the hit "F**kin' Problems" -- has been slapped with an assault charge in Philadelphia after allegedly getting all Rick James on a female fan this weekend ... TMZ has learned.

We know ... the alleged victim, a young mom, filed a criminal complaint with the District Attorney's Office today claiming she was attending the Made In America concert on Saturday when the rapper got violent.

The woman claims A$AP was trying to make his way through a crowd of dancing fans -- with a bunch of girls pulling on his shirt -- when A$AP turned and fired off an open-hand slap, connecting with her face.

The woman claims she was injured from the alleged slap -- suffering whiplash from the impact.

The D.A.'s office reviewed the case and has decided to charge A$AP with misdemeanor simple assault.

We reached out to A$AP's camp for comment -- so far, no word back.

I think I got this now:
.
> If a rapper is popular enough, he hires guys to beat up fans, male and female.
> If a rapper is a POS loser like this, he can't hire guys, so he resorts to slapping random women to keep his cred.
.
Yep, a real MAN here folks.

Why is there always emphasis on the gender? Same ****ing thing regardless of gender. If a woman slaps a man, the man can slap her back, yet so many people think it's wrong to do so. Why? Same ****ing thing.

From reading at this short article, it's obvious that it's not his fault.

"A$AP was trying to make his way through a crowd of dancing fans"

"bunch of girls pulling on his shirt"

It had to have been an accident for his hand to meet one of the girl's faces, and I think he only meant to try to release himself from the thirsties.

A$AP Rocky's been around for a long time before the mainstream got an obscure exposure of him, he's not really the one who degrades women.
