Scott, who grew up in Atlanta, was the official DJ for Rocky and one half of the Cozy Boys. He also routinely lent his skills as a producer to the crew, was an A&R for A$AP Worldwide and worked as a creative partner on A$AP Mob projects.
On Sunday (February 2), Rocky shared a post to his page featuring a photo of himself next to Scott and the caption, “IM LOST FOR WORDS, IDK WHAT TO SAY. RIP BROSAY. A$AP 2 DA DEATH. LOVE U J SNACKS @jscottandshit.”

A$AP Ferg also expressed his shock via Instagram and had difficulty explaining how Scott’s death is affecting him.
“Man words can’t even describe how I feel right now,” he wrote. “Rest In Peace to my brother @jscottandshit. This was one of the healthiest guys I knew but I guess God needed him. Gone too young ‘cozy boy’ for life love u bro.”
Details on his death have yet to surface. As of publication time, it’s unclear how Scott passed away.
A$AP Twelvyy and A$AP TyY have posted tributes of their own alongside The Internet, Playboi Carti and more. Check out their reactions below.
