A$AP Yams Honored by Fans on Twitter in Celebration of #YamsDay
Two years ago, A$AP Mob lost their Svengali A$AP Yams, who died from an accidental drug overdose on January 18, 2015. Since then, the A$AP Mob crew have remembered their fallen leader with an unofficial holiday, Yams Day, and a tribute concert in New York.
This year, the Yams Day concert will be held at Madison Square Garden and the bill features an all-star list of performers. Of course, A$AP Rocky and A$AP Ferg will rock the mic, but also also joining them are Tyler the Creator, Joey Bada$$, Danny Brown, Lil Uzi Vert, TDE, T-Pain and more.
On Twitter, fans have been paying tribute to A$AP Yams with celebratory tweets. "YAMS, EVERYDAY IS YOURS BUT TODAY THE WORLD COMES TOGETHER TO CELEBRATE YOU JUST HOW YOU ENVISIONED; GOTH B*TCHES, HENNY & FUN," wrote one person. Another commenter tweeted, "Rest In Peace to one of the greatest minds and souls the music industry has ever had. Rest In Peace Yams."
In celebration of the second unofficial holiday, rapper Kirk Knight released “Setup,” a new collaboration with A$AP Ferg. Check out the song below as well as people's celebratory tweets in honor of the late A$AP Yams.
