A$AP Rocky has pleaded guilty to attempted grand larceny stemming from a fight with two photographers over the summer. The Harlem rapper, who just revealed the official tracklisting for his forthcoming Long.Live.A$AP debut, was arrested over the summer for allegedly attacking the amateur photogs in Manhattan.

From TMZ:

Rapper A$AP Rocky just pled guilty to attempted grand larceny in connection with a brawl that took place back in July in NYC -- between the rapper and two amateur photogs.

TMZ broke the story ... A$AP -- real name Rakim Mayers --  was arrested following the fight, during which A$AP allegedly attacked two men for snapping pics of him ... while he was involved in a verbal altercation with another person.

According to the complaint, A$AP attempted to grab the camera during the melee -- which is where the larceny charge comes from.

In addition to the larceny charge, A$AP was charged with attempted robbery in the 2nd degree and assault -- but the robbery and assault charges were dropped in exchange for A$AP's guilty plea. 

A$AP was sentenced to three days of community service, and must pay a $250 fine. His next court is scheduled for February.
