Rapper A$AP Rocky pleads not guilty on Wednesday to two felony charges of assault with a firearm in connection with the shooting of a former buddy in Hollywood in November. Rocky, 33, showed up in court in Los Angeles with his lawyer by his side, who told the judge that the musician was filing a not guilty plea. According to a statement from Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón, the prosecution claims that Rocky, actual name Rakim Mayers, pointed a semi-automatic weapon at a man during a “heated dispute.”
Rocky pulled out his firearm during a subsequent altercation and fired twice at the man, who was hit only slightly, according to the statement.
