Stockholm - US rapper A$AP Rocky will give testimony in a Swedish court on Thursday on the second day of his assault trial after he and two of his entourage were accused of punching and kicking a teenager.
On day one of the trial on Tuesday, the 30-year-old performer, producer and model, whose real name is Rakim Mayers, pleaded not guilty to a charge of assault causing actual bodily harm. His lawyer told the court he acted in self-defence.
Mayers was detained on July 3 in connection with a brawl outside a hamburger restaurant in Stockholm on June 30 and later charged with assault.
Before Thursday's session began, Mayers entered the court room in handcuffs, wearing the Swedish Prison and Probation Service's green clothes and with his hair in a ponytail.
Mayers' mother was, as on Tuesday, in the court room, wearing an A$AP Rocky shirt.
