For the first time, A$AP Rocky spoke on the untimely death of his close friend and business partner ASAP Yams. Most notably, Rocky cleared up rumors that Yams had overdosed on drugs. While speaking with Billboard at Sundance, Rocky told the magazine: "People were saying that Yams overdosed on drugs -- he didn't overdose on any drugs," Rocky said, though he declined to discuss the real cause of Yams' passing. "I feel like people feel that way because that's all he's in pictures doing. When you see A$AP Yams you see Hennessey or purple drink, you see some type of controlled substance or illegal narcotic." An NYPD spokesperson issued a statement to The Fader that A$AP Yams' cause of death is still unknown.
