By now the world has heard of Harlem’s ASAP Rocky. The rapper blast into the scene with his 2011 mixtape Live. Love.

Here, VIBE takes a look at all the pieces to the puzzle. Be prepared to hear more of ASAP Yams, ASAP Bari, ASAP Nast, ASAP Ant, ASAP Twelvy and ASAP Snacks with a new ASAP Mob album on the way.

Mob Ties: Meet A$AP Twelvy

by @Djordje

Coming into the music business with friends that also double as your rap group can be detrimental to those very relationships. Envy and a lack of clarity on what position each member is to play have splintered innumerable crews. A$AP Twelvy is certain about his role within his family, though. More importantly he’s happy to see his brothers basking in the limelight. Whether it’s Rocky touring the world or Ferg, Nast and Addie bodying shows around the country, he’s confident of his upcoming turn. In the mean time he’s content to move as a unit with the rest of the Mob and contribute to Rocky’s upcoming album until his day to rock the spot solo comes. And with several stand out verses on Lords Never Worry plus a dope guest spot with Smoke Dza it’s clear this kid maybe slept on a tad with the patience of a saint. Guess that’s why he’s the Good Goon.

A$AP Rocky Interview with Vibe

by @Djordje

The A.S.A.P. in A$AP Rocky can mean a lot of things. There’s the common break down: As Soon As Possible; the one that incorporates the money sign best: Always Strive and Prosper; the bad-ass definition: Assassinating Snitches and Police; and the Harlem rapper’s personal favorite: Acronym Symbolizing Any Purpose.

A$AP Rocky raps about purple kush and that purple Southern rap elixir on “Purple Swag,” a track off his debut mixtape LiveLoveA$AP. He raps about “Purple Kisses” on the debut A$AP Mob mixtape, ‪Lord$ Never Worry‬, but the 24-year-old had a different purple in mind at VIBE’s recent V-Mix concert. For “Acronym-Symbolizing-Any-Purpose” Rocky, the color “purple” symbolizes his “new revolution” — that everybody “is equal as a generation” and “it’s up to us to stop that racist shit on some real shit.” Check out A$AP Rocky’s serious conversation with VIBE on all things purple backstage at the V-Mix concert, along with footage of his performance with cameos from the rest of the A$AP Mob hip-hop collective and Busta Rhymes.

Mob Ties: Meet A$AP J. Scott

by @Djordje

The A$AP Mob never stops moving. Every other rap group is always talking about being in the studio, on the grind, or running from meeting to meeting but you never see the output. Not for J. Scott (Snacks) though. Not only is he Rocky and The Mob’s DJ, but he also A&Rs for A$AP Worldwide, DJs/hosts for Baller’s Eve on East Village Radio, manages Kilo Kish and a slew of other artists (We’ll spare you the “at the same damn time” reference). During a recent interview at EVR, Scott gave VIBE some insight into his busy days, how he got his nickname and A$AP slang.

Mob Ties: Meet A$AP Ant

by @Djordje

Rocking out with a mob of your homies has it’s perks. The sheer energy of the collective on stage with you is enough to elevate your confidence and enhance your performance.There is a down side to that, though. For one, it’s hard to distinguish yourself. Your audience may not be able to make the distinction between you and one of your rhyme buddies, lumping you all together. You may have to really work at standing out amongst your counterparts.

Mob Ties: Meet A$AP Nast

by @Djordje

Fresh off the A$AP tour and back in Gotham City, Nast is happy to be back around the way in the hood that gave him his sense of style, his career path and of course his adopted family. Known for his trademark chipped tooth and unique delivery, the kid is plotting on his next moves while reflecting on this past year’s experiences. He’s seen his cousin Rocky who he hung out with as a child grab Rihanna’s ass on stage and he’s been on the road for 61 days performing 47 shows with his cohorts. Eventful year wouldn’t you say?

Mob Ties: Meet A$AP Yams

by @Djordje

You have to appreciate a boss who can lead from behind (ayo). It’s take a special kind of person to allow his counterparts and underlings to shine with minimal interference. A$AP Yams is that type of individual. A true student of the game who used to break night researching the independent thinkers like Tony Draper, J. Prince and even Jim Jones, Yams learned what it would take to get his team into the spotlight and beyond. And a major part of those lessons was to move quietly and deflect attention to one’s product, rather than hogging the camera and the interviews. Too often, the man with the plan has his own agenda for fame. Yams is not that dude.

Mob Ties: Meet A$AP Ferg

by @Djordje

Any good underboss worth his weight in body bags knows how to play his position. They know that even though the don may be getting the spoils and shine at the moment, the family wouldn’t be the same without them. Underbosses diversify the family’s strength by being leaders without all the hoopla, thus freeing up the dons to attend to other agendas.

The experience often makes them better leaders due to the amount of time they spend on deck practicing their swing until it’s their turn at the plate.Though “Work” and it’s accompanying clip are hardly what you’d call “practice,” A$AP Ferg is benefiting from observing Rocky’s first endeavors and rise to fame because when it’s his turn to rock (Yams says he’s up next) he’ll have Rocky’s experiences to draw from as well as his own. And the formula is working. One needs to only see the crowd’s reaction at one of dozens of their sold out shows on their recent tour when Ferg performs “Work.” It rivals the reaction to “Peso” and “Goldie” and on some nights has surpassed it.
