We are sad to report that a member of the popular A$AP Mob has passed away.
A$AP Bari broke the news that A$AP Yams, one of the co-founders of the music group, has passed away, but so far, there are no details behind the cause or time of his death.
According to MissInfo, Yams, also known by his real name Steven Rodriguez, was a heavy user of codeine and xanax, as the site reports:
He did, however, spend a brief stint in rehab last summer in an effort to curb his drug addiction. “That lean shit corny now i apologize for even glorifying that bullshit its embarrassing it destroyed too many lives,” he wrote on Twitter in July. “Its disrespectful to the families who lost loved ones to that demon for us to be flaunting that addiction rip pimp c.”
Also, Yams’ last tweet from yesterday morning was about codeine:
