His mom later confirmed the news on Facebook, writing:

“Nashawn was a rapper, singer, songwriter, and actor. No one could deny his talent. Nashawn’s departure from this world has left an immense void in my life, one that words cannot fully express. I can’t put into words the pain and hurt that I feel. He was not just my son; he was a remarkable man whose character and strength inspired all who crossed his path.”

Heartbreaking. And now his cause of death has been revealed. He may have died in his sleep, but it wasn’t natural causes. According to an autopsy report from New Jersey’s Office of the Chief State Medical Examiner, Nashawn died of acute intoxication by the combined effects of fentanyl, acetyl fentanyl, cocaine, and ethanol.
