A$AP Mob’s longtime DJ and producer, J. Scott (aka A$AP Snacks) has recently passed away. Rapper A$AP Rocky, as well as his crew, took to Instagram on Sunday night (Feb. 2) to inform fans of the sad news.
“I’M LOST FOR WORDS, IDK WHAT TO SAY,” A$AP Rocky wrote. “RIP BROSAY A$AP 2 DA DEATH LOVE U J SNACKS.”
“Man words can’t even describe how I feel right now,” Ferg wrote. “Rest In Peace to my brother @jscottandshit This was one of the healthiest guys I knew but I guess God needed him. Gone too young ‘cozy boy’ for life love u bro.”
Scott was not only the DJ of A$AP Mob. He was also the official DJ for A$APRocky and the Cozy Boys. Scott was also a producer who managed various artists and served as a creative partner to A$AP Mob.
Scott was born in Atlanta, Georgia and joined A$AP Mob shortly after moving to New York City. Prior to Rocky’s surge of fame in the early 2010s, Rocky and the late A$AP Yams asked Scott to be Rocky’s official DJ. Shortly after, Scott began managing artists. It’s currently unclear how J. Scott passed.
