Hard Drugs Down a Dead End Street – 

April 11, 2020 – The Philadelphia native signed with the agency Ford Models at age 14 after being discovered at the Six Flags Great Adventure park in New Jersey, according to Pitchfork magazine. But she always had goals of being in the music industry.

Rogers’ dream became a reality when in high school she teamed up with the late producer A$AP Yams, who formed the hip-hop group A$AP Mob.

A$AP Yams died of an accidental drug overdose in 2015.

During a 2018 interview with Pitchfork, Rogers opened up about her music career, her struggles with drug addiction and the death of her mother, which she said she refused to let derail her sobriety.
