A$AP Yams Didn’t Die of a Drug Overdose Says A$AP Ant [VIDEO]
The hip-hop community is still in shock over the untimely death of A$AP Yams who died over the weekend at the age of 26. While the cause of his death is still unknown, A$AP Mob member A$AP Ant talked with DJ Vlad to shoot down rumors that’s been circulating on the Internet.
In the interview, the A$AP member denied that Yams had died of a drug overdose. “It ain’t no overdose. That’s not what it is,” he said. “People keep talking saying he overdosed on Xanax and s--- like that. No, that’s not what happened at all. I don’t want to talk on it and I’ll let people find out by themselves but it wasn’t that at all.”
Ant was also upset over people reposting photos on Instagram of a distraught A$AP Rocky at the hospital where Yams died. The rapper felt that some people were exploiting the photo in order to get likes on their page.
“People gotta stop acting like bitch-ass motherf---ing tabloids bloggers and s--- like that,” he stated. “Let the bloggers and the people who actually do that as their job, let them do that stuff.”
“Everybody on Instagram posting pictures of Rocky at the hospital where he passed away at, y’all looking like females and the tabloids,” he continued. “That’s not any of your business to post that. For y’all to post [photos] like that, I guess to make things look cute...or whatever you do to get cool brownie points, don’t do that. That’s private for somebody. I wouldn't want to see a picture of me on the Internet going to the hospital to see my grandfather while he’s dying. I wouldn’t want to see that.”
Until we get an official word from Yams’ family, rumors will continue as fans are wondering how an enterprising young man who had so much going for him could passed away so suddenly.
Either way it’s a terrible loss for the A$AP Mob collective who saw Yams as their Yoda or “spirit guide."
Rest in peace to A$AP Yams and our heartfelt condolences to his loved ones.
