Sources close to the star claim he was with his team late Friday night at a recording studio in Marin County, just north of San Francisco, and he allegedly left by himself around 11.30 P.M. or midnight (PST), saying that he’d be right back.
However, by 1.00 A.M. news broke of Yase’s death by shooting, with his body having been discovered somewhere in the East Bay – which is almost an hour away from where he was last seen alive.
On Saturday afternoon the Instagram account for Highway 420 Productions shared a post in honour of the fallen “Get It In” rapper, alongside a clip of the star that read, “We appreciate all the love and support… Yase loved his fans, he worked every day for y’all. We have hundreds of songs coming for you.”
Fellow artists like Slimmy B, Derek King, Lil Slugg, and Shawn Eff were among those posting condolences and RIP messages on the comment section of Lil Yase’s last Instagram post following his sudden passing.
