A$ap Rocky is set to stand trial for the alleged shooting of former ally, A$ap Relli in January 8, 2024.
According to a judge, there’s sufficient evident to have A$ap Rocky stand trial for shooting his former group member A$ap Relli in 2021.
A$ap Rocky appeared for the hearing on November 9, 2023 with the prosecution presenting a video evidence and text messages between him and Relli.
The judge noted that there was enough evidence linking A$ap Rocky to the shooting incident.
Relli who also took to the stands revealed that he had agreed to meet Rocky on November 6, 2021.
The two were to iron out some differences between themselves.
Relli affirmed that Rocky had insisted he shows up in person for the meeting.
However, Rocky turned up with two men A$ap IIlz and A$ap Twelvyy one of whom who wielded a knife with Rocky having a gun in hand.
It was at that moment that Rocky threatened to kill Relli with the latter taunting him to go ahead.
“I’ll kill you right now” Relli qouted Rocky’s words.
“Shoot that sh*t. Why you brought a gun if you’re not going to use it? You don’t scare me” fired back Relli.
While leaving the scene, Relli disclosed that he told Rocky that he had failed the other group members who were afraid to tell him.
The moment saw Rocky turn around and shot Relli.
The bullet caught Relli’s hand partly, the incident was also caught on nearby surveillance cameras showing four men at the scene.
However, the footage is blurry according to reliable sources.
On Monday, the prosecution ruled that Rocky will stand trial on two accounts of assault with a semi-automatic gun.
While at the court on Monday, Rocky was not accompanied by his celebrity wife, Rihanna.
The rapper faces up to 4 to 8 years if found guilty.
However, his lawyer believes that he will be acquitted of wrongdoing.
