The Hip Hop world was dealt an insurmountable blow when it was learned that A$AP Mob founder and beloved leader, ASAP Yams, was found dead on a chilling morning this past January. The public was left with a little more than speculation on the 26-year-old’s cause of death, but it was assumed it might’ve been related to drugs as he’s publicly dealt with drug-use over the years, and his infamous last tweet which read “BODEINE BRAZY” (meaning “codeine crazy”).
Now, according to a tweet from long-time music aficionado, New York Times writer Jon Caramanica, speculation can be laid to rest as it has been reported via Twitter that the “Chief Medical Examiner calls ASAP Yams’s death accident caused by acute mixed drug intoxication .” These drugs included “opiates and benzodiazepine” according to the same tweet, which you can read below.
