The video shows two unnamed men following the rapper and his entourage, before one man appears to lunge for a member of the musician’s security team.

The men then seem to follow the group as they walk through the streets, before a women intervenes and attempts to act as a communicator between the men and A$AP’s crew.

His entourage repeatedly ask two men to leave them alone, and stop following them.

 A$AP posted: So a few drug addicts are not my fans, we dont know these guys and we didnt want trouble, they followed us for 4 blocks, and they were slapping girls butts who passed, give me a break.”

In a second video, he captioned: “Hits security in face with headphones then follow us.”

“I’m innocent. They trynna arrest me out here now, smh”

There is no word yet whether whether he will still perform at Longitude.

Chance the Rapper has already been replaced with Stormzy as the Saturday night festival, when the rapper pulled out of the festival.
