American rapper Rakim Athelaston Mayers, aka ASAP Rocky, stands accused of firing a gun at his friend ASAP Relli multiple times during an argument back in 2021.  He is now set to stand trial in January 2024.

According to People Magazine, Judge M.L. Villar stated during the preliminary hearing in Los Angeles that the evidence shown was sufficient to try him.

During the initial trial on Monday, November 20, 2023, the former member of the A$AP Mob, ASAP Relli, claimed that he was hit by bullet fragments during the argument with Rocky when the rapper fired his gun at him. After this, he claimed that he sought medical assistance at a hospital in New York.

During the hearing, a picture of Relli’s minor injuries displayed in the courtroom showed small patches of raw, bloody skin on the knuckles of his index, middle, and ring fingers of his left hand. Relli, Rocky’s childhood friend, went into details about the assault after their argument back in November 2021.

Despite all Relli said, the rapper himself pleaded not guilty to the two counts of assault with a firearm. The two shall battle it out in court in January 2024.
