News broke Sunday morning of the passing of A$AP Mob founder, A$AP Yams. After many accusations of drug overdose being the cause of the 26 year old’s death, A$AP Ant and Joey Fatts speak out against those rumors as false accusations. In a conversation with VladTV, A$AP Ant discussed Yams’ impact on himself as well as the Mob. He touches on not being sad over his death because that’s not what Yams would want; but instead throw a party in honor of him. Joey Fatts tweeted that Yams also had sleep apnea, but it hasn’t been determined as the official cause of death.
“I just want to clear it up for real, for real. It ain’t no overdose. People stop saying overdose, cuz that’s not what it is. People keep talking about he overdosed off Xanax or whatever and lean…no. That’s not what happened,” – A$AP Ant
My brother ain’t die from no overdose. Fuck all you bitch niggas. My brother had severe sleep apnea. And was killing you fuck boys daily.
