    • Brian B.Dot™ Miller

      How sway?!

      • Chan

        I thought it was good. Nice positive best to remember such a positive person.

    • the DOCTOR

      Speak nothing of the dead but good.

      • Black

        He spoke well of him but facts are facts & all that lean plus Xans aren’t cool & have claimed too many young lives already. This should be a teaching moment as well if you ain’t learn from DJ Screw,Pimp C,etc…

        • LuckyP

          nigga what u mean FACTS? FACT is that they’re saying theres no cause of death determined at the moment, so the FACT is nigga u aint God so you don’t know. FACT is he claimed to have been sober for months now. Those are FACTS. Like the man said the tweet was highly unnecessary but wtf do we expect from Rap Radar nowadays

          • the art of deception

            fact is the last pic he posted on tublr on friday he was holding the double styrofoam cup… maybe it was just tea though

          • LuckyP

            i can only go by what the man himself states. then to top it off, i can double cup skim milk if i choose. we’ll soon see though

          • Shock

            Why would you? Who does that? I see your point, but the writing is on the wall.

    Of course this site gonna find a way to name drop Drake into an article for some extra hits… Smdh… On a more important note, RIP Yams, he played a crucial role in introducing the world to ASAP, launching several successful careers, and also bringing Harlem back.

    • But Drake did tweeted out Rip Yams though. U don’t like Drake do you.

    • yeah

      you had to click to even see drake was even mentioned? remove your conry ass from this post if youre going to talk like that, god forbid a man actually sent his condolences to somebody he knew…

      • Kev

        There’s a lot more rappers whom sent their condolences over social media, many of which worked with ASAP significantly more than Drake that sent their condolences too. Fuck even spaceghost paid respect. I’m just saying it was completely unnecessary and irrelevant to add that to the story. But what more can you expect from this site.. It’s pretty much OVOMMGROCRADAR.com… I’m 100% sure if Rozay or Jigga reacted to this publicly, they would be here before spaceghostpurrp rip yams

    • thats mr.esco to you fk boi!

      Bitch ass bama stfu u corny

    • pimpsquadpop

  • Mr.Stealyogurl

    Honestly this dude was instrumental not only to all of ASAP mobs career but basically every rapper that’s even popping in NYC right now. He showed love to everybody. He was a cool dude and gone way to soon.

    Rest in peace
