sudden death of A$AP mob co-founder A$AP Yams was discovered. New York Times music writer Jon Caramanica tweeted that the New York City Chief Medical Examiner has determined the Harlem native died because of a "acute mixed drug intoxication." A spokeswoman for New York City's chief medical examiner also confirmed to
Billboard. Peep the tweet below.

As previously reported, Yams was found unconscious by his roommate early Sunday morning (Jan. 18). He was transported to Brookyln’s Woodhull Medical Center where he was later pronounced dead. There were no signs of trauma and a cause of death was pending an autopsy report. Friends, loved ones and fans celebrated the life of the 
late Steven Rodriguez, also known as A$AP Yams, Sunday evening (Jan. 25). The memorial service took place at the Frank E. Campbell Funeral Chapel in New York. That’s the same place where Aaliyah, Notorious B.I.G., Joan Rivers and many others celebrities were put to rest.

A$AP Ant and Joey Fatts initially denied the speculation Yams’ death was caused by an overdose. A$AP Rocky said that Yams' tragic death "eats at him" and backed up the claim that his fellow mob member didn't die by drugs.

“People were saying that Yams overdosed on drugs — he didn’t overdose on any drugs,” he said. “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.”
