A$AP Rocky gets arrested in New York City

One of the brightest new stars of 2012 has been A$AP Rocky. New York City has been in need of new energy and he, along with French Montana and others, has been the shot in the arm the Big Apple needed. The Harlem emcee has received credit for his marketability outside of hip hop, as he appeals to many different audiences.

Anticipation for A$AP Rocky has been high, as he successfully made the jump from being another mixtape rapper to being a superstar. Rocky is the front man of the A$AP Mob and he has a major label deal. Since being signed, many have wondered when his debut album, LongLiveA$AP would be released.

With the album due in September, A$AP Rocky got himself into a little trouble only two months before his album comes out. Rocky got into a brawl with several photographers in his native Manhattan. The fight began with Rocky and someone else, but he began fighting photographers who were taking pictures, leading to his arrest and being charged with attempted robbery, as reported by TMZ.
