Hip Hop took a blow following the sudden death of A$AP Mob founder A$AP Yams, who was found unresponsive inside of his NYC apartment on January 18. While many struggled to understand what contributed to his unexpected passing, new details have finally become available which shed light on what exactly happened to the 26-year-old.
Immediately following the tragic loss A$AP Rocky denied that drugs were to blame stating, “People were saying that Yams overdosed on drugs — he didn’t overdose on any drugs. I feel like people feel that way because that’s all he’s in pictures doing. When you see A$AP Yams you see Hennessey or purple drink, you see some type of controlled substance or illegal narcotic.”
Yet according to Chief Medical Examiner Jon Caramanica, Yam’s death was caused by “acute mixed drug intoxication” due to opiates and benzodiazepine and has been ruled an accident.
