The music star’s manager John Miller said in a statement:

“I can regrettably confirm Chynna passed away. Chynna was deeply loved and will be sorely missed.”

Chynna – who had been open in the past about her battle with opiods – died from a drug overdose, Vibe first reported.

She got her start in the entertainment industry at just 14-years-old when she was signed to Ford Models.

One year later, Chynna met producer A$AP Yams who began to mentor the then-15-year-old to pursue a career in music.

Steven “Yams” Rodriguez founded the Harlem, New York hip hop collective A$AP Mob in 2006 along with A$AP Bari and A$AP Illz.

Since their conception, the group has signed a number East Coast rappers including A$AP Rocky, A$AP Ferg, A$AP Twelvyy, A$AP Nast, A$AP Ant and Chynna.

The Philadelphia native released several singles in 2013 and 2014 – with the song Selfie being her first hit.

Chynna followed up with the track Glen Coco before the release of her first album Ninety that came out in 2016.

In December 2019, Chynna put out her fourth and final album titled in case i die first.

The praised performer was open about her past addiction with opiods and discussed her ongoing battle in both her music and in interviews.

In 2017, she revealed to Vibe she was three years sober: “I felt crazy. I didn’t want to be a statistic.

“I didn’t want to go out that way and people be like: ‘I told you so,’ or glamorize it [drugs], because I don’t feel like that.

“It was nerve-wracking to be open, but when you see how many more people who are dealing with the same thing, it’s good to have some kind of example of someone you didn’t expect to be going through it.”

The former model said her support system was pivotal in her recovery: “It was hard. I had to go away for a minute and I did detox.

“But it was a matter of having a really good support system of family and friends,” she said at the time.

After the news of her passing broke, fellow musicians expressed their shock and grief over the young star’s sudden death.

Singer Kehlani, 24, tweeted: “chynna you were f***ing hilarious bro… today was our last exchange of jokes & those i will miss the most. i can’t believe it idk how to.

Musician Yung Baby Tate, 23, said: “Chynna was SOOO f***ing dope man wtf… scary to even have to say RIP.”

Close friend and comedian Quibi Brunson was both heartbroken and angry: “Just lost another friend to drugs. I’m not going to be quiet about it.

“I’m tired of drug culture. Everything about it. Everything attached to it. I know there’s a bigger picture.

“But i don’t care right now. I’m so tired. And sad. Crying. I am so mad,” the improv comic shared on Twitter.
