A Swedish court found American rapper A$AP Rocky guilty of assault Wednesday for his role in a June 30 street brawl in Stockholm, but he won’t serve more jail time.
The artist, whose real name is Rakim Mayers, earlier pleaded self-defense and said he had tried to avoid a confrontation with two men who were persistently following his entourage. One of them picked a fight with one of Mayers’ two bodyguards, the rapper told the Stockholm District Court.
