26-year-old founding member of hip hop collective, ASAP Mob, Steven Rodriguez died over the weekend aged 26. His label confirmed the news but has not yet released details relating to a cause of death.

A peer to fellow ASAP Mob members Rocky, Ferg, Nast and others, the outpouring from the hip hop community has been massive for the young innovator.

ASAP Yams will be remembered for his work curating and creating talent based around hip hop culture and, of course, for pioneering one of the most influential hip hop movements in New York for at least a decade.
