No cause of death was released as of Sunday afternoon for A$AP Yams, a founding member of the A$AP Mob — whose death was announced earlier that day on Twitter. He was 27 and his real name was Steven Rodriguez.

A$AP Bari, a fellow member of the hip-hop collective, posted the news, writing, “I’m done with life. RIP Yams.”

Other members of the collective also chimed in on Twitter. A$AP Rocky wrote, “R.I.P YAMS, I LOVE YOU BROTHER.” A$AP Ferg posted, “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. #asapworldwide #asapferg #yamborgini #yamz.”

Drake tweeted, “Rest in peace Yams. A$AP is family.” “R.I.P YAMS,” wrote Azealia Banks. Mac Miller said, “Damn. RIP @ASAPYams.” As fans paid tribute, A$AP Yams became a trending topic worldwide.

Yams had been candid about his long struggle with drugs. He was known to use codeine to get high, and he reportedly checked himself into rehab last year. His last tweet on Saturday read, “BODEINE BRAZY,” which has led to speculation drugs may have played a role in his death.
