A$AP Rocky Pleads Not Guilty

Rocky has entered a not guilty plea...

From ABC
Rapper A$AP Rocky appeared in a downtown Los Angeles courtroom on Wednesday to enter a not guilty plea on assault charges in connection with a November 2021 shooting in Hollywood.
The hip-hop star, whose legal name is Rakim Mayers, was charged on Monday with two counts of assault with a semi-automatic firearm for allegedly firing a handgun twice in the direction of the victim during a confrontation, according to Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón.
The alleged assault with a firearm was against a former friend of Mayers and took place in Hollywood on Nov. 6, 2021, according to prosecutors.
"Discharging a gun in a public place is a serious offense that could have ended with tragic consequences not only for the person targeted but also for innocent bystanders visiting Hollywood," Gascón said in a statement on Monday. "My office conducted a thorough review of the evidence in this case and determined that the addition of a special firearm allegation was warranted."

These criminals as masquerading as entertainers. The music executives who sign them need to be investigated. We never had criminals like this in the rap game prior to the 2000s. For every Snoop, Eazy E, (Crips) we had a dozen conscious rappers and poets that weren't about that life. It's almost as if these record labels purposely set out to find the most violent gang members and flip them into "rappers" for black community consumption. Rap has set black ppl back worse than crack! They've somehow managed to make this violent shit a part of black culture and we need to dead it at the head (record labels, music executives etc).

These new age rappers are not happy if they don't have a rap sheet. He's five kinds of dumb and that's who Rhianna made her baby daddy. I'm gonna go listen to some LL Cool J.
