Yams Day is among us and it can only mean a few things: All of ASAP Mob on one stage, the hip hop show of a life time, and a celebration of life for one who really made a stamp on NY culture: A$AP Yams.
As many may know, Yams was the founder of ASAP Mob, a collective based in NY of rappers, producers, fashion directions, video directors, and cool kids who made a huge impact on hip hop, street wear and creative outlets all over. ASAP Yams also helped start the career of ASAP Rocky, which opened the door for many other rappers in the group including ASAP Ferg, ASAP Nast, and ASAP Twelvy. On the fashion side, ASAP Bari’s line Vlone is in every hypebeast’s closet.
On Yams Day, we celebrate life as the ASAP Mob leader was lost due to various reasons in 2015. While NY may have lost a staple, his legacy, branding and efforts to push culture live on through ASAP Mob and their supporters. Yams Day started one of the biggest culture driven music and art shows making light of a scary situaiton.
This year’s Yams Day celebration will include performances from ASAP Mob & Friends with A$AP Rocky, A$AP Ferg, A$AP Twelvyy, A$AP Nast, A$AP Ant, French Montana, Flatbush Zombies, Lil Yachty, Playboi Carti, Nav, G Perico, Aston Matthews, Da$H & Retch and even more to be announced. Yams Day couldn’t get any more stacked. We’re looking forward to the show along with its efforts to shed light on substance abuse. This year, a portion of sales will be donated to ASAP Forg, the collective’s non-profit that educated young kids on substance abuse, it’s dangers and awareness.
