It seems things just keep getting worse for US rapper ASAP Rocky.

The 30-year-old musician and producer will remain behind bars pending his trial in Stockholm.

Swedish authorities have now officially charged ASAP Rocky, who’s real name is Rakim Myers, for assault.

The charge carries a maximum sentence of two years behind bars.

ASAP was detained earlier this month along with two members of his entourage.

They were captured on video during a fight in central Stockholm.

ASAP has maintained that he acted in self-defence as his group was provoked by the two men who were following them.
