A$AP Yams

Though it’s been 4 days since the tragic passing of A$AP Yams, little to no details surrounding the cause of death have come out. Speculation has named a battle with addiction to a codeine and Xanax combo, while others close to him are blaming Yams’ severe sleep apnea as the culprit, but neither have yet to be confirmed or denied.

Though they didn’t provide any more details as to why, the NYPD has at least helped to answer the “how,” shedding some light as to the sequence of events that led up to the tragedy. In a statement to The FADER, the NYPD press relations office revealed that Yams’ roommate found him laying down unconscious and unresponsive early on Sunday morning, then called 911. He was taken to Woodhull Medical Center in Brooklyn with “no apparent signs of trauma.”

“Following the examination, the cause and manner of death are pending further studies,” their spokesperson said. More details will be revealed within the next few weeks. Our prayers are with the Mob!
