A$AP Mob’s A$AP Rocky recently talked about his late friend A$AP Yams passing away earlier this month and offered a take on why media speculate his death was caused by drugs.

According to Rocky, Yams’ publicized image sparked rumors of an overdose taking his life.

People were saying that Yams overdosed on drugs — he didn’t overdose on any drugs. I feel like people feel that way because that’s all he’s in pictures doing. When you see A$AP Yams you see Hennessey or purple drink, you see some type of controlled substance or illegal narcotic.” (Billboard)

A$AP Mob’s A$AP Ant came forward to rule out Yams overdose reports earlier in the week.

“It ain’t no overdose. People stop saying overdose ’cause that’s not what it is. It’s not an overdose. People keep talking about he overdosed on Xanax and shit like that, lean. No, that’s not what happened at all. I don’t wanna talk on it. It wasn’t that though at all.” (VLAD TV)

Rocky broke the shocking news to fans on Instagram last Sunday (January 18).
