On January 18th, 2015, the world lost the cultural icon and innovator known as A$AP Yams. Born Steven Rodriguez, Yams was the originator and founder of the A$AP collective who made waves and shifted the game in the early 2010s. A lot of the jiggy rapping and stylings from 2011-2014 can be directly attributed to A$AP Mob. Many people who were deeply tapped into the culture grieved the loss of A$AP Yams, and to this day his name is carried on.
7 years later, the reverence and adoration for Yams is still as strong as ever. A$AP Mob and fans constantly give his name the flowers it deserves, letting people know of the many foreground and background contributions Yams provided. Many have learned more about him after passing, simply because he would operate behind the scenes so efficiently and effectively. Of course, one fan's love for A$AP Yams can't be outshined. That love is from his own mother, affectionately known as Mama Yamborghini.
