U.S. rapper A$AP Rocky has been charged with assault in Sweden over his alleged involvement in a street brawl.

The 30-year-old, whose real name is Rakim Mayers, will remain in custody until a trial takes place.

He has been detained since July 3 along with two members of his entourage, who have also been charged.

Their arrest followed a fight in Stockholm on June 30, with A$AP claiming he had acted in self-defence.
