As thousands of New Yorkers braved frigid temperatures last week to attend the lively celebration that was Yams Day 2016, family and friends of the late A$AP Yams turned what would’ve otherwise been a somber anniversary into one sweet memory. Performing at NYC’s Terminal 5, the A$AP Mob honored their “spirit guide” with a rave that was spirit-filled to its brim.
Recapping the bash, A$AP Rocky, Ferg, and Nast caught up with REVOLT backstage to reminisce about their friend. “He was just a special human being,” A$AP Ferg shared, while Rocky summarized the night as a special way to “rejoice somebody that was very special to us.”
In addition to singing praise, the group also took a trip down memory lane to share an epic tale about the time they almost wrote an R&B album for Yams.
“Man, I was gonna put out Yams album, I was gonna write all his lyrics,” recalled Ferg, before Rocky joyfully interjected, “Remember that shit?!”
“We was gonna make an R&B album,” the former continued, while Rocky added, “[Ferg] was going to be the ghostwriter, but my son was on his Puerto Rican R. Kelly, Dominican Bobby Brown shit.”
An A$AP Yams R&B album? If only.
