According to a recent TMZ report, rapper ASAP Rocky was attacked in a New Zealand elevator over a dispute.
TMZ reports that Rocky was at the Pullman Hotel in Auckland around 3 a.m. on Thursday after a concert and got into an elevator with women in it. Three men, who reportedly wanted to get in the elevator were denied because there was no room. After being denied, the men assaulted the rapper, punching him in the face.
According to witnesses, the alleged attackers were yelling, “F*** ASAP” as they attacked the rapper. Hotel security eventually broke up the fight and police arrived to the scene, arresting one suspect for assault and resisting arrest.
ASAP Rocky eventually responded to the story on Twitter, tweeting, “N**gas get shot everyday B, ha.”

In related ASAP Rocky news, Rocky and the rest of the ASAP Mob plans to release a new album called the “Cozy Tapes” soon. The album originally started as an ASAP Yams album but after his death, Rocky vowed to finish it.
Last year, speaking with MTV News, Rocky revealed his plans to finish and release the late ASAP Yams debut album “Cozy Tapes.” According to Rocky, Yams was working on “Cozy Tapes” before his death and had notes written about the direction of the album.
“Cozy Tapes is the next album that I’m ’bout to drop — it’s Yams’ album that he was working on before he died,” Rocky said.
According to the rapper, he has all of Yams’ thoughts. “I was mostly working on my album ‘A.L.L.A.’ while he was curating and organizing who he wanted for the [Cozy Tapes], so he put it all in his notebook that I carry around with me every day. I’ve got all of his thoughts and I just plan to execute what he started.”
