It was a sad day in Hip-Hop when A$AP Yams passed away back in January. Months later, it has been revealed that the A$AP Mob guru’s death was an accident due to drug use.
According to Jon Caramanica of the New York Times, as well as Billboard, the New York medical examiner ruled that Yams’ death was caused by a mixture of drugs, including opiates and benzodiazepine. These findings refute A$AP Ant’s claims that he did not die from drug as was wildly speculated at the time of his death.
Born Steven Rodriguez, Yams was only 26 when he died.
Rest in power.
