The New York Times Profile ASAP Yams (Video)
Fans of the ASAP Mob will acknowledge ASAP Yams as just as beloved of a member as ASAP Rocky or any of the other rapping members. Yams, the crew’s ringleader of sorts – or as he puts it, the Yoda to Rocky’s Luke Skywalker – was profiled by The New York Times, and during this interview he covers a number of topics including how Rocky’s debut Long.Live.ASAP, which debuted at #1 selling over 140,000 copies, is first and foremost a New York record. As entertaining as Yams’ twitter can be, he’s very much about the stuff he talks about. You can check out his 42 Favorite Albums list for Complex and also a podcast from last May with writers David Drake, Ernest Wilkins and FakeShoreDrive.com’s Andrew Barber.
