The hip hop world is reeling with the news overnight that A$AP Mob founder, A$AP Yams – aka Steve Rodriguez/aka Yamborghini – passed away at the age of 26.  A trusted presence in hip hop circles via his various blogs, Yams founded the collective which has since resulted in bigtime careers for A$AP Ferg and A$AP Rocky. He was known to have spent part of 2014 in rehab and his last tweet on January 16 simply stated BODEINE BRAZY, (likely slang for Codeine Crazy), but the cause of death has yet to be released. The likes of Drake, Azealia Banks, Chamillionaire, Lil B and more have paid tribute via social media. RIP.
