Rapper and model Chynna Rogers has passed away suddenly at the age of 25, as confirmed by her manager.
‘I can regrettably confirm Chynna passed away,” Rogers’ manager John Miller said in an email statement to The Wrap.
He also passed along another statement from her family, which read, ‘Chynna was deeply loved and will be sorely missed.’
While Miller would not comment on the rapper/model’s cause of death, he did confirm, ‘she passed away today.’
Rogers had battled with opioid addiction in the past, though there is no indication that had anything to do with her death at this time.
Chynna Rogers who was born in Philadelphia, started her career as a model, after signing with Ford Models when she was just 14.
Soon after, she became friends with A$AP Mob founder A$AP Yams and released her first single Selfie in 2014 and Glen Coco in 2014 through A$AP Ant and DJ Nick’s Marino Gang record label, which became viral hits on YouTube.
It was the late Yams who gave Rogers the confidence to pursue a career in music and in 2015, she released EP’s entitled I’m Not Here in 2015, followed by Ninety in 2016.
Also in 2017, Rogers released her EP, Music 2 Die 2. Her last release, ‘in case I die first’, dropped in January.
