Rapper Chynna Rogers Dead at 25

Rapper and model Chynna Rogers has passed away at the age of 25.

On Wednesday, Chynna died at her Philadelphia home, her manager John Miller confirmed to People magazine.

The cause of her death is currently unknown.

In a statement, her family said, “Chynna was deeply loved and will be sorely missed.”

Her passing comes just months after she dropped her EP “If I Die First.”

Over the years, Rogers has been open about her past opiate addiction. In 2018, she told Vibe, “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."

As for how she was able to kick the addiction, Chynna said, “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."

Rogers also discussed her opiate addiction on her 2016 mixtape “Ninety.”

Rogers, who signed with Ford Models at 14, pursued a music career soon after becoming friends with A$AP Mob founder A$AP Yams, who became her mentor.

Her 2013 song “Selfie” became a viral hit. She followed up with “Glen Coco” and her 2015 EP “I’m Not Here. This Isn’t Happening.”
