While A$AP Mob continues to mourn the loss of A$AP Yams, A$AP Rocky is speaking out for the first time about his fallen friend.
Rocky was at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah over the weekend to premiere his coming-of-age movie Dope, in which he makes his acting debut.
During the film’s after-party, he cut his set short and dedicated the final song to the A$AP Mob founder, who passed away on Jan. 18.
He was scheduled to attend Yams’ memorial just hours later.
We’re sorry to report that A$AP Yams, real name Steven Rodriguez, has passed away at the young age of 26.
Details of how he died have not been released, but both A$AP Ferg and A$AP Rocky have confirmed the news via social media.
“You were the brilliant mind, you put us on Game you changed our lives.
You changed my life, you changed the world. R.i.P YAMZ there can never be another one after you,” Ferg wrote on his Instagram page.
“You will be missed Bro. We done touched a lot of ground together. Landed on a lot of different soil!!!
You will always be loved & your spirit will live on!!!”
According to the New York Times, Rodriguez met fellow Harlem, New York native Rocky in 2008 and is credited with starting the group A$AP Mob.
“He don’t want to be Puffy,” Rocky told the New York Times. ”He’s the mastermind behind the scenes.”
R.I.P. A$AP Yams. :(
