A$AP Bari Faces Sexual Assault Accusations After Disturbing Video Leaks

ASAP Bari is in hot water after footage emerges of him allegedly trying to force a girl to engage in sexual activities.

 

A$AP Mob co-founder A$AP Bari is facing accusations that he sexually assaulted a woman after a video leaked on Wednesday night (July 12) that appears to show the co-founder of the Mob-associated VLONE clothing line trying to force a woman to give him oral sex. The NSFW clip that originally posted on the @soledout account has since been taken down but can still be found on Reddit and Twitter.

In it, a woman is seen hiding under the sheets of a bed as someone who appears to be Bari (born Jabari Shelton) says, "you f--ked my assistant, now you're going to suck my d--k." The woman says "no, no, stop it, Bari, honestly stop" and flees from the bed as Bari, 25, pulls off the covers and smacks her butt while he says "shut the f--k up b--ch." The short clip ends with her fleeing the room.

According to Hypebeast, Bari responded to the leak on Wednesday night with the comment "Cmon fake the fake edit videos," but that tweet appears to have been taken down at press time. A woman who claims to be the one in the video tweeted her response, writing, "I was forced into bed by Bari and his crew and Bari got upset because I refused to engage in any sexual acts." It is unclear where or when the alleged incident took place. A spokesperson for Bari could not be reached for comment at press time.

Among others weighing in on the alleged incident is Ian Connor, a stylist once associated with the A$AP crew and VLONE, who had a falling out with the team in June after a confrontation at a 2016 VLONE event in Paris in which he was involved in a brawl with Theophilus London and Bari.

Nipsey Hussle Rumored To Receive Tribute At 62nd Annual Grammy Awards

This time last year, Nipsey Hussle attended the Grammy Awards as a first-time nominee. The Los Angeles native, who earned a nod for his long-awaited feature length studio album, Victory Lap, hit the red carpet alongside his daughter, Imani, and partner Lauryn London. Despite losing the category to Cardi B, Hussle's landing a nomination after years of grinding in the rap game, was a victory within itself.

“It ain’t expect nothing,” he told Big Boy's Neighborhood last last year of being nominated.. “It’s been some talk around it so if the list would’ve come around and I wasn’t on it, I wasn’t going to be disappointed.”

Two months after the award show, the 33-year-old rapper and entrepreneur was gunned down in the parking lot of his clothing store. Hussle's tragic death seemingly expanded his fans based an illuminated his legacy and influence, and according to a report from Hits Daily Double, the Grammys will pay tribute to the late recording artist during this year’s ceremony. It's unclear who will participate in the supposed tribute as  the Recording Academy has yet to confirm (or deny) the rumor.

Hussle also received three posthumous Grammy nods for Best Rap Song, Best Rap Performance and Best Rap/Sung performance. The ceremony is expected to feature performances from Tyler the Creator, H.E.R., Charlie Wilson, Lil Nas X, BTS, Lizzo, and Aerosmith with Run DMC, and more.

The 62nd annual Grammy Awards air on Jan. 26 on CBS.

Jim Jones Hints At A Dipset Movie

With recent individual projects from Cam’ron and Jim Jones gaining widespread acclaim, the latter East Coast rap veteran plans to keep that momentum going with this latest news. According to XXL Magazine, Jones hinted at a movie on their rap collective Dipset, which formed in the late 90s but rose to mainstream prominence in the 2000s.

“We started this as young teenagers. We would’ve never thought that we did what we did and ended up where we are and we’re still here today making money off this industry that we dreamed of being in," he said during an interview on Nick Cannon's Power 106 show. "People know we make music and there’s always a nostalgic value when we pop out and do music. But I do believe we got a story that needs to be seen in hip-hop like no other. I know people have a lot of their own glory story, but we really have an action flick that needs to be told.”

Dipset, which is comprised of Cam’ron, Jim Jones, Freekey Zeekey, Juelz Santana, and former members 40 Cal., Hell Rell, and J.R. Writer, churned out hit after hit like “Hey Ma (Remix),” “Real Ni**as,” "Family Ties," “Dipset Anthem,” “I’m Ready,” “Crunk Muzik,” and more.

A Dipset film will not head to production until Santana’s release from prison, Jones also noted. Santana was sentenced to two years in prison for possession of a firearm as a convicted felon. He was also found guilty of possession of a controlled substance. According to his partner Kimbella, Santana is expected to be released in summer 2020.
