TMZ claimed that law enforcement seized weapons from A$AP Rocky’s home in a raid last week in which officers stormed the front door of his Los Angeles home with a battering ram and left the house with several boxes.
Police are conducting ballistic tests on the weapons to determine if the artist, whose real name is Rakim Mayers, was the perpetrator of the November shooting, TMZ reported.

If convicted, Mayers could face up to a year in jail, a $1,000 fine and misdemeanor probation, according to the California Penal Code.
Los Angeles police released a statement saying officers “worked diligently” to identify the suspects involved and investigate the shooting.
If convicted, Mayers could face up to a year in jail, a $1,000 fine and misdemeanor probation, according to the California Penal Code. If he was convicted of felony assault with a deadly weapon, Mayers could spend up to four years in state prison, be fined up to $10,000 and face mandatory probation.
Last week’s incident is not Mayers’ first run-in with the law.
The rapper was arrested in Sweden in 2019 after a street fight broke out between his entourage and two men.
Mayers was convicted of assault, given a suspended prison sentence and ordered to pay more than $1,000 in damages. According to reports, he served a month in jail before his sentence was passed.
The artist, raised in the Harlem neighborhood of New York City, was also charged with attempted murder at age 16.
Mayers, who started dealing drugs as a young man, was reportedly bullied by an older man. He went to the alleged stalker’s house to confront him and ended up shooting him.
He tried to attack me in front of some ladies. And I was little. He was a little older than me,” Mayers said two years ago, detailing the incident in Untold Stories of Hip-Hop.
Los Angeles police released a statement last Wednesday confirming Mayers’ arrest.
Earlier this year, Mayers and his partner, singer Rihanna, announced that they were expecting their first child together.
Rapper A$AP Rocky, real name Rakim Mayers, had been arrested for allegedly shooting a man on a Los Angeles street last year. He was photographed days earlier in Barbados.
The teen, who was carrying a gun for protection, said he thought the alleged harasser was looking for a gun. He claimed that he never intended to shoot the man.
“I started to loosen up,” Mayers said of the confrontation. I didn’t want to hit him. I was beaten with attempted murder at first, then kept falling.
Mayers was arrested shortly after the shooting and spent time in the city’s infamous jail on Rikers Island. However, due to his age and the nature of the incident, the charges were reduced to attempted murder.
Rihanna and Mayers reportedly hosted a private rave-themed baby shower last Friday.
According to HipHollywood, Rihanna rescheduled her party after the raid and arrest.
But Rihanna and Mayers made up for the initial hiatus on Friday night when their guests were asked to wear neon clothing. Everyone left with personalized gifts.
One of the gifts given to the star-studded guest list was a t-shirt that read, “I went to Rih & Rocky’s Rave party and all I got was this amazing t-shirt.”
Rihanna, who has been praised for her offbeat maternity fashion, donned a ‘huge fur hat’.
The couple reportedly wanted to keep the shower private. Attendees were prohibited from filming and asked to put their phones in bags when they arrived.
The 34-year-old singer revealed last month that she was in her third trimester, however, she has not shared her due date.

As the rapper cruised and grinned on a Yamaha jet ski, Rihanna watched him through binoculars from a nearby wall overlooking the water.
She has said of their relationship: ‘What do I love most about us? Transparency with everything: how we feel, what our goals are, what our fears and insecurities are.
‘The vulnerability of being able to say how you feel about each other.’
Earlier this year, experts alleged the couple plan to marry the pop star in Barbados by naming Prime Minister Mia Mottley, 56, as the newborn’s godmother.
A source told the Sunday Mirror: “Rihanna is totally in love with A$AP. They have a very close bond and Rihanna has always been quite traditional.
They will surely marry. She has told her friends that she wants to be with him forever, and he has said the same thing. There are no plans yet on when the nuptials will take place, but it won’t be before the baby is born. She has always wanted to get married and A$AP is her forever person.’
