A$AP Mob member J. Scott has died, the Mob confirmed via Twitter on Monday (Feb. 3). A$AP Rocky, A$AP Ferg, Vince Staples and many others from the music community have all paid their respects to the late producer, DJ and creative for the Mob and Cozy Boys conglomerates.
“I’M LOST FOR WORDS, IDK WHAT TO SAY. RIP BROSAY A$AP 2 DA DEATH. LOVE U J SNACKS,” Rocky wrote, memorializing his friend.
“Man, words can’t even describe how I feel right now,” an emotional Ferg added. “Rest In Peace to my brother @jscottandshit This was one of the healthiest guys I knew but I guess God needed him. Gone too young ‘cozy boy’ for life love u bro.”
Details surrounding the tragedy remain scarce at this time. Chuck Inglish, Kenny Beats, A-Trak, Reese LaFlare, Gashi, The Internet and A$AP Ty have also chimed in with thoughts eulogizing J. Scott, also known as A$APSnacks, who played an integral role in the Mob’s rise in the early ’10s.
