American rap star: ASAP Rocky will have to go to court for killing a friend

DAmerican rapper ASAP Rocky will soon have to stand trial for the murder of his former friend. The 35-year-old musician, who is out on bail, is scheduled to testify in court on January 8, a Los Angeles judge ruled on Monday (local time). The rapper, who has two children with singer Rihanna, is charged with two counts of assault with a semi-automatic firearm.

ASAP Rocky, whose real name is Rakim Myers, denies the allegations. He has pleaded not guilty in the November 2021 case.

Arrested in Sweden after a fight in 2019.

At the time, Mayer had a confrontation with Terell Efron, with whom he was previously friends, on the streets of Hollywood in Los Angeles. The incident was partially recorded by a surveillance camera.

ASAP Rocky pointed a semi-automatic weapon at his opponent. During a later confrontation, the rapper fired in Efron’s direction. As a result of the incident, he received minor injuries. ASAP Rocky was temporarily arrested due to the shooting.

This is not the first time the New York-born musician and performer of the hit “Praise the Lord (Da Shine)” has had problems with the law: in 2019, he was arrested in the Swedish capital of Stockholm after a street fight. He was released after more than a month in custody and was later given a suspended sentence for assault.
