During a 2016 interview with Ultraolive, Scott opened up about how he got into music and what led to him becoming a member of A$AP Mob.
“I’m originally from Atlanta and in high school I started to get into production via the program Reason, but never fully got into the mix. I was bouncing around in the streets too much. When I moved to NY for good, all my friends up here would just want me to play music at the get togethers. Before Rocky started to pop off, Yams and Rocky asked me to DJ for him,” Scott told the publication.
Scott’s death comes 5 years after the death of A$AP Mob founder A$AP Yams. Yams, né Steven Rodriguez, died at the age of 26 of an accidental overdose.
