A$AP Yams' Cause Of Death Revealed

By HHL Editors

In January, the Hip Hop community was saddened by the death of A$AP mob co-founder A$AP Yams.

Since Yams (Steven Rodriguez) had struggled with drugs, early speculation was that he had overdosed. His last tweet, which read "BODEINE BRAZY" (slang for "codeine crazy"), just fed into this.

A$AP members Ant and Rocky both pushed back hard against this assumption, and denied drugs played a role in Yams' death.

However, earlier tonight New York Times reporter Jon Caramanica tweeted out some of the results Chief Medical Examiner's report on Yams' passing, and it does look like he succumbed to his addictions.

Codeine is an opiate and Xanax a benzodiazepine.

Steven Rodriguez was 26.
