UPDATE: Rapper and Model Chynna Dies at 25

From an accidental overdose.

UPDATE (April 10, 2020): A spokesperson for the city’s Department of Public Health told People that the rising star died of an accidental overdose.


Chynna, the model-turned-rapper known for collaborating with A$AP Mob, passed away at age 25 in her hometown of Philadelphia.

Full name Chynna Rogers, the young creative was scouted at age 14 by Ford Models. For several years, she did catalogue work with the agency and went on to appear in campaigns for brands including DKNY, X-Girl and maharishi. When Chynna was 15, she approached ASAP Yams on Twitter and asked to be his intern. He accepted, and eventually encouraged her to try her hand at rapping. Two of her singles, “Glen Coco” and “Selfie,” became viral hits.

“She was an extremely inspirational and unique artist and person,” Chynna’s manager, John Miller, told The New York Times in an e-mail confirming her death.
