On July 19, the rapper got into a heated discussion in downtown Manhattan when two bystanders began to photograph the incident he allegedly attacked them.
Now TMZ reports that Shenick Alcine, the other man involved in the fight, reveals the cause of their dispute -- he saw the rapper doing illegal drugs and is suing the Harlem musician for unspecified damages.
The incident previously led to a grand larceny charge for the rapper, who tried to take away the photographer's cameras after they caught his actions on film. After pleading guilty to this incident, the charges were dropped and A$AP only faces a small fine and some community service.
This is not the first time that the "Fuckin' Problem" singer has been involved in physical altercations -- he is well-known for creating drama at shows.
Hopefully when his album drops later this month, A$AP will settle down and focus on his career. Long.Live.A$AP is set to drop on Jan. 15, check out the tracklist here.
