Rest In Peace to a fiery soul
Horrific news has come out of the A$AP camp today, as via several reports from core members of the A$AP Mob, we have learned that their founder and unapologetic leader, A$AP Yams, has passed away. Though the cause of death has not yet been made public, there are no early indicators of foul play. Yams, real name Steven Rodriguez, was 26 years old.
Hip-Hop has rapidly poured out its condolences and well-wishes for the entire A$AP Family, including Drake, Action Bronson, Travi$ Scott and more. Yams was more than just the guy who started A$AP. He was deeply entrenched in several regional Hip-Hop movements, and was earnestly working to help bring guys like Aston Matthews, Joey Fatts and more to the forefront.
Rest In Peace. Always Strive And Prosper.
R.I.P YAMS, I LOVE YOU BROTHER http://t.co/Fa90bN68yr
