A$AP Yams Battled With Addiction In Rehab In The Past

While details surrounding the death of 26-year-old A$AP Mob founder A$AP Yams are still unclear, early reports and rumors are suggesting an overdose of the deadly combination of codeine (prescription cough syrup) and Xanax pills. Though fellow Mob member A$AP Ant says an overdose is not the case, it doesn’t rule out the drugs completely, as there can be deadly side effects from withdrawals of codeine as well. In recent years, Yams attempted to kick the habit in rehab, reportedly at the urge of his best friend Rocky, who stopped his lean use in 2013. Yams documented his struggles in a Tumblr post, revealing seizures and more, but his final tweet was sadly and ironically about the very same drug, as he wrote, “BODEINE BRAZY.” (Both available in the gallery.) Whatever the case, Yams was a visionary gone WAY too soon, and our prayers are with his family and the entire Mob right now. IFWT will keep you updated as more details become available.
