The two strangers were said to have been following A$AP's crew around and one reportedly broke a pair of headphones when striking his bodyguard over the head.
Swedish prosecutors are asking a judge to allow them to hold A$AP Rocky and members of his crew for 2 weeks, while they investigate the alleged assault Tuesday for which he was arrested. The original footage picks up after the fight has already begun, so there's still no telling how exactly it started, but the men who accosted Rocky likely regret their confrontation either way.
This led to the fight and Rocky has since been arrested according to the Swedish media.
"We are working hard with this and confident that the prosecutor will take a decision in favor of my client when he gets the full picture", Olsson Lilja said, according to Reuters.
(Rocky posted video of the lead-up to the fight on Instagram, and it appears to show one of the men hitting Rocky's security guard with his phone.) The two men kept talking with Rocky and his associates for several minutes, despite warnings and entreaties to stop following them.

"We don't know these guys and we didn't want trouble", A$AP said. They then followed them and threatened to contact the police. "They followed us for four blocks".
