A$AP YAMS has passed away at the age of 26. He is one of the main reasons that A$AP mob is what it is today and A$AP Rocky and A$AP Ferg’s careers wouldn’t be where they are today without the help of the Harlem native. YAMS was also integral in the A$AP Mob’s infatuation with fashion and got them a major record deal. He started his own clothing line called ‘Blackout Boys’ and was influential in countless other fields. YAMS touched many lives and will be dearly missed. The hip hop community lost a visionary today. Cause of death has not been announced as of yet, but it’s rumored that he died from a lethal mixture of codeine and xanax.
