Rapper A$AP Rocky and A$AP A$AP Bigga Bar$ have pleaded not guilty to the alleged assault of two photographers in New York City.

The 23-year-old Harlem act and his rhyme cohort were arrested on July 19, after a physical confrontation with two amateur photographers. According to early reports, Rocky (nee Rakim Mayers) got into a verbal altercation with an one individual as two onlookers began taking photos of the Purple Swag spitter.

When Rocky and Bigga Bar$ confronted the photographers, a fight broke out. Rocky was placed in handcuffs, arrested and accused of stealing. Reports surfaced that unnamed victims in the fracas suffered minor injuries.
