STREETWEAR ON THE STREETS: Fans All Layered Up To Celebrate A$AP Yams

On the 18th of January, fans, collaborators, and friends gathered up and braved the cold to remember A$AP Yams, on the first year on the anniversary of his death. A$AP Mob's first official Yams Day featured performances by A$AP Rocky, Joey Badass, Flatbush Zombies, Bodega Bamz, and more. Outside, fans patiently waited in freezing temperatures for their chance to pay tribute. Their fits were pretty unconventional but yet classic and stylish; an aesthetic Yams himself embodied, and would surely have been appreciated by him.

 

Steven Rodriguez aka A$AP Yams, founder of New York City's A$AP Mob and consistent purveyor of rap tastes, died at the age of 26. Old friends and mentors recall that Rodriguez wanted nothing more than to build a brand; Duke Da God stated that the young charge "always had a plan in his mind," going as far to tattoo "ASAP" on his arm at the age of 17. Boyish in looks but bearing a loose, disheveled silhouette, Yams maintained an integral presence in New York City's budding downtown community, selling mixtapes and managed artists before forming A$AP Mob with A$AP Bari and A$AP Illz in 2007.
