Rapper A$AP Rocky has pleaded guilty to a charge of attempted grand larceny.

The charge stemmed from a fight between the rapper and two amateur photographers, which took place in June of this year, reports TMZ.

The rapper allegedly attacked the two men for taking photographs of him and then attempted to take a camera from one of the men, resulting in the larceny – or theft – charge.

A$AP – real name Rakim Mayers – was also charged with attempted robbery in the second degree and assault, however, these two charges were dropped in exchange for his guilty plea.

He has been sentenced to three days community service and been ordered to pay a $250 fine.

A$AP Rocky recently unveiled the tracklisting for his forthcoming new album 'LongLiveA$AP', revealing a host of guest stars, including Florence Welch of Florence And The Machine, Drake and Kendrick Lamar.

The record will be released on January 15, 2013, and also features appearances from Santigold, Yelawolf, Danny Brown, Action Bronson and Pharrell.

The record will not feature 'Ridin'' – his collaboration with Lana Del Rey that was pulled from the KickDrums' recent mixtape.
