Last year, Shenick Alcine sued A$AP Rocky claiming he attacked him and threw punches in a clothing store in New York. Now, Rocky is saying the alleged scuffle was out of self-defense.

Alcine says in his lawsuit that Rocky was doing drugs inside the store. When he caught him, Rocky supposedly retaliated with violence.

Though A$AP was arrested for assault and robbery after the brawl, it was for a different incident. He reportedly beat up two photographers who were filming it and tried to steal their camera in the process. For that case, he struck a plea deal, with a fine and three days community service.

Rocky is calling out Alcine and saying he is a liar. He filed documents in New York asking the judge to throw out the lawsuit.
