A$AP Mob boss A$AP Rocky isn’t trying to cough up any bucks to settle a New York landlord lawsuit. New reports claim the hip-hop star is fighting back.

According to gossip buzz, Rocky has decided to countersue in an effort to get his $40,000 deposit back.

A$AP filed a countersuit … saying the landlord was negligent in maintaining the building, and that caused 2 floods in the unit — one of ’em so bad, the rapper says he had to rent another place for a month. The landlord originally sued A$AP for more than $100k, claiming the rapper turned a closet into a recording studio and damaged the downstairs bathroom — all of which A$AP finds laughable. In his docs, he says whatever changes he made actually increased the pad’s value. (TMZ)

Recently, A$AP Rocky joined forces with MTV with a multi-year executive deal.

“I think we need to get people more in tune with vignettes, video clips,” the musician said in an interview. “That’s really going to be my strong suit.” MTV has signed A$AP Rocky to a two-year deal under which he will devise original concepts, experiment with programming and various pieces of MTV intellectual property, and develop content for advertisers. He and his company, AWGE, will form a venture called MTV Labs, billed as a “creative incubator” unit. (Variety)

Earlier this fall, reports surfaced about A$AP joining a star-studded cast of upcoming Hollywood movie Monster.

Kelvin Harrison, Jr. (“The Birth of a Nation”) and Jennifer Hudson are starring in the independent drama “Monster,” which is starting production this week in New York City. Bron Studios has joined forces with Tonik Productions and Get Lifted Film Co. to co-produce and finance. The cast includes Jennifer Ehle, A$AP Rocky, Nas, Tim Blake Nelson, John David Washington and Jeffrey Wright. (Variety)

A few weeks prior, Rocky lit up social media after getting spotted working on his third solo album with rock legend Lenny Kravitz.
