New York Observer Recaps A$AP Ferg’s Up & Down NYC Performance

by @Djordje

duhreturns-147

When the news of the death of A$AP Yams hit two Sundays ago, the music industry reacted as if a young Puff Daddy had passed. Yams was the Yoda behind A$AP Mob, the world-conquering rap crew that honed its game in Harlem to become the city’s chief squad, no questions asked. In just a few years, they ascended to the top on the backs of two true fiercely talented rappers: A$AP Rocky, the dandyish wordsmith usually bedecked in designer duds off the runway at Pitti Uomo, and A$AP Ferg, his grimier, zanier street brother with an elastic, rubbery voice that’s capable of dizzying feats of flow.

Yams was not a front man figure—he was always working behind the curtain, pulling strings, whispering in ears—but The New York Times, Rolling Stone and Billboard all ran obits, each testifying to his taste and expertise, and insisting he was someone the city should mourn.

So, this past Thursday night, it was a safe bet that A$AP Ferg’s scheduled performance at Manhattan club Up & Down was more public mass than party. Ferg’s Manhattan show was to re-launch DUH, one of the few unhinged, pansexual, gigantic weekly parties that cross the East River from Brooklyn anymore.

A$AP Rocky Interview with T Magazine

by @Djordje

28symonds-asap-tmagArticle

It’s been an up-and-down couple of weeks for A$AP Rocky. On Saturday, the 26-year-old rapper attended the world premiere of his new film, “Dope,” a hip-hop-driven comedy in which he plays a drug dealer named Dom. (Also featured are Keith Stanfield, Zoë Kravitz and Rocky’s ex-girlfriend, the model Chanel Iman.) The movie — Rocky’s first — has been a Sundance hit, drawing rave reviews and becoming an early favorite to win the festival’s audience award. But Rocky, né Rakim Mayers, was in little mood to celebrate. Just six days earlier, on Jan. 18, his close friend and collaborator Steven “A$AP Yams” Rodriguez died suddenly of still-undisclosed causes. On Sunday morning, Rocky would have to fly to New York City for the funeral.

When T spoke with Rocky at the “Dope” after-party, the loss was weighing heavily on his mind. “I miss him,” he said of the A$AP Mob co-founder. “Yams was my Yoda. He’s my brother. He left too soon, but I cherished every moment that I knew him.” When the conversation shifted to the film, however, his mood brightened considerably. Citing the 1992 drama “Juice,” starring the late rapper Tupac Shakur, as an early influence, Rocky expressed a desire to keep acting after Sundance. And as he spilled about everything from fashion to film to the current state of hip-hop, it became increasingly clear that his ambitions extend far beyond Park City.

Remembering A$AP Yams

A week ago on January, 18th 2015, the world was stunned by the tragic news of Steven Rodriguez‘s (also know as A$AP Yams) passing. As one of the founding members of the Mob, Yams served an integral role in A$AP, often acting as a ‘spirit guide,’ something highlighted in his 2013 interview with The New York Times. On Monday, family and friends gathered at Frank E. Campbell Funeral Chapel to pay their final respects; the same chapel that played host to the farewells of John Lennon, Aaliyah and The Notorious B.I.G.

The shocking news left many of us in disbelief. And while we continue to mourn his passing, it is important to note that Yams’ impact transcends far beyond music and culture. His legacy will continue to live on through the countless people whose lives he’s touched.

Since his passing, the outpour of support from fans, artists, and media outlets alike has been inspiring. From countless art, personal memoirs, and even articles in The New York Times to CNN, it’s amazing to see just how far Yams’ influence went.

To help us reflect on Yamborghini‘s legacy I’ve compiled a list of links from the last week and times prior:

Rest in Paradise Yamborghini. A$AP Forever. YAMS FOREVER.

New Music: Carnage – WDYW ft. Lil Uzi Vert, A$AP Ferg & Rich The Kid

by @Djordje

Heavy-hitting producer Carnage may have voiced dissatisfaction with the trap scene a few years ago, but he’s still keeping things appropriately turnt: his latest tune, “WDYW,” features appearances from A$AP Ferg, Lil Uzi Vert, and Rich The Kid, along with some heavy chimes and a bassline that arrives with the intention of overturning cars and generally fucking all of your shit up. “I’m really excited to finally drop this one for yall… Charlie heat and I really made something special.. Uzi.. FERG and rich all killed it!!” Carnage told FADER in an email, very emphatically (for email, that is) on “WDYW.”
