Ash Riser was a Los Angeles-based artist and producer. Sadly, Ash died on June 12, 2021, just a month before the release of his album H.O.P.E. While his cause of death has not been made public, a few podcasters have utilized their platforms to share things that people aren’t aware of. Doja Cat is involved with this story, and she doesn’t hve the best look.
Host Lil Housephone claimed on a recent episode of ‘No Jumper’ that singer Doja Cat, who dated Ash Riser, was partially to blame for Ash’s death.
“The homie Ash Riser– he had a song with Kendrick Lamar back in the day… they (Ash and Doja) got into it and she deleted his whole hard drive of music that he was working on to send to TDE (Top Dawg Entertainment) or something like that. It was something very important, and she deleted his entire catalog of music that was on his hard drive. He ended up having a lot of substance abuse problems and ended up passing away last year. This is just basically what I was saying that you can never let a significant other derail you because look what happened to her and look what happened to him. His whole life got derailed, starting from this Doja Cat….dating her. She’s somewhere rich and famous, she probably never thought about that n*gga again. I’ve seen the shit with my own two eyes.”
Doja Cat was accused of not only smoking meth, but also deleting Ash’s hard drive out of spite, destroying tons of music and everything he was working on. This allegedly took place just before he had a big deal for his music that was about to go down.
The clip did not go over well with Ash’s manager or his mother when it aired. The late musician’s page tweeted demanding that the ‘No Jumper’ episode be taken down due to false charges. The relationship between Ash and Doja “did not send him into drug abuse nor did it have an effect on his career.” According to the accusation, Ash and Housephone had never been pals in the first place.
The allegations upset Ash’s mother as well. She moved to Twitter to deny the claims, calling them “utter BS.” She stated in a tweet in response to a news item that included the clip in question, “I’m Ash’s mother and this is utter BS. Absolutely not true. I’ve never even heard of this kid spreading these salacious rumors. He should have more respect for people instead of passing himself off as someone in the know.”
Below are some of the tweets about the situation, as well as the ‘No Jumper’ podcast clip that caused the controversy.
