Rapper A$AP Rocky avoids jail

A$AP In connection with the shooting of a former member of his posse, the A$AP Mob, Rocky will be charged with criminal assault.

The accusations were made public by Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascon on Monday.


Rocky, 33, whose true name is Rakim Mayers, is charged with two counts of assault with a pistol that operates automatically.


On November 6, 2021, while his partner Rihanna was four months pregnant, the event took place.


A month before Ri-Ri gave birth in April 2022, the Sundress singer was first detained in connection with the shooting at the Los Angeles International airport.


On August 17, Rocky will be charged in a courtroom in the heart of Los Angeles.


“Discarding a gun in a public location is a severe act that might have ended with fatal repercussions not just for the individual targeted but also for innocent bystanders visiting Hollywood,” Gascon’s office said in a statement.


“My office undertook a comprehensive assessment of the material in this case,” it said, “and found that the merited insertion of a particular firearm charge.”


A$AP Relli, whose actual name is Terell Ephron, claimed that the rapper shot him during a dispute in the Hollywood neighbourhood of Selma and Argyle Avenues.

His name was originally made public by Rolling Stone earlier this month.

Around 10.15 p.m. on November 6, Rocky is accused of approaching a Relli on the street and firing three or four revolver shots at him.


According to reports, one of the shots injured Relli’s left hand, prompting him to seek medical attention.


Rocky and two other males who had apparently been strolling with him left the area after the shooting.


Authorities and Relli worked together to identify Mayers as a suspect in the shooting.


The LAPD’s Robbery Homicide Unit is currently looking into the matter.


Rocky’s residence was raided by detectives, and multiple weapons were found there before his arrest in April. Rocky was detained in April on accusations of assault with a dangerous weapon.


A $550,000 bond allowed the rapper to leave jail.

Relli’s attorneys earlier in August informed TMZ that the aspiring rapper had received death threats and had been called a “snitch” as a result of the shooting.

Relli has been receiving counselling since the incident, according to the lawyers.


In a separate interview, his attorneys disclosed to Rolling Stone that Relli was suing Rocky in civil court, claiming that Mr. Rihanna had damaged Rocky’s career in the entertainment sector irreparably.


The legal team told the publication: “After arriving at the place, a dialogue proceeded during which A$AP Rocky produced the pistol and purposefully fired numerous bullets at Mr. Ephron without provocation, warning, or any reason.”


On the same day that Rocky’s accusations were revealed, Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascon managed to stave off a second recall effort.


Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascn has been under fire for criminal justice changes that some have said have encouraged lawlessness in an area that has experienced increased crime rates, blatant smash-and-grab robberies, and home invasions. The top prosecutor has refuted these claims.


The unsuccessful effort comes after District Attorney Chesa Boudin, another well-known California criminal justice reformer, was called back by San Francisco voters in June.


After an early effort last year failed, it was the second attempt to qualify a recall election that might remove Gascón.


According to Cristine Soto DeBerry, executive director of the Prosecutors Alliance, which advocates for improvements, “Los Angeles’ criminal justice reform movement has succeeded because this is a city that favours facts over unfounded fear.”


Gascón expressed his gratitude for being able to move beyond this effort at a political power grab in a tweet.
