Chynna Rogers had previously spoken out about her battle with opiate addiction in an interview with Pitchfork, saying that:  “It got to the point where I had to do something just to be able to get onstage and do my job. I didn’t like that.”

She added: “Two or three years ago, I felt that I hadn’t gone through enough terrible stuff to deserve to have this as a career. I didn’t feel like I deserved to be making a living off talking about my life yet because I just couldn’t relate to enough people. It wasn’t just the drug-addict thing, but also all the behaviors that come with it, all the situations you end up in, and the people you end up around just living that life.”

Many have taken to social media to pay their respects to the late rapper.

Chynna was best known for her singles ‘Glen Coco‘ and ‘Selfie‘.
