ASAP Rocky Attacked In Hotel Elevator

( 4UMF NEWS ) ASAP Rocky Attacked In Hotel Elevator:

Rapper A$AP Rocky was reportedly attacked by a group of men in New Zealand yelling “f— A$AP.”

The “L$D” rapper was roughed up by three men during an elevator dispute at Pullman Hotel in the city of Auckland on Wednesday afternoon (early Thursday morning in New Zealand), according to TMZ.

Punches were hurled when the men were told by the 27-year-old, who was accompanied by some women, that there wasn’t enough room for them in the elevator.

The Harlem native, who is there for an upcoming show in Australia, reportedly tried to protect the women as he was punched in the face, officials told the gossip site.

Authorities eventually broke up the assault and booked one of the suspects in to jail.

The severity of the artist’s injuries are unknown but it appears he is still set to take the stage for his concert Thursday night.

The rapper was recently mentioned in Kanye West’s latest Twitter rant. The vocal and erratic mogul wrote Rocky deserved the Grammy win for best video over Taylor Swift.
