Rest in Peace A$AP Yams

As of yesterday the hip-hop world has been mourning the loss of Steven Rodriguez, aka A$AP Yams, founding member of A$AP Mob. The 26 year old’s cause of death remains unknown but the loss he leaves in the music world is deeply felt by his contemporaries.

“You will be missed Bro. We done touched a lot of ground together, landed on a lot of different soil!!! You will always be loved & your spirit will live on!!!” A$AP Ferg wrote on his Instagram, while A$AP Rocky wrote, “R.I.P Yams, I love you brother,” on his own.

Yams helped both Rocky and Ferg become super stars and helped make A$AP Worldwide a force to be reckoned with. Almost a year ago Yams was featured in a profile for The New York Times that called him “a spirit guide, a muse, a curator of sonic ideas.”

Other artists such as Drake, Rihanna, Action Bronson, and Azealia Banks have also expressed their condolences. May Yams rest in peace.
