Last night was the Second Annual Yams Day, an epic concert put on to memorialize the late A$AP Yams, the core of the eponymous Mob. It took place at New York’s Madison Square Garden and featured a line-up of A$AP Rocky with the full Mob, Tyler, the Creator, Danny Brown and more.
But being an event of this enormity, there were naturally a few surprises. We highlighted a few of the evening’s best below.
A$AP Ferg Leads an Emotional (and Lit) Tribute
It was obviously up to a member of Yams’ family to remind the crowd why they had gathered in the first place. But as you can see above, that does not necessarily make it a somber affair.
Tyler, the Creator Tears That Shit Up
Tyler is a pretty intimidating rapper, if you need a reminder of this fact look no further than last night’s set. It was frankly, heavy af.
ScHoolboy Q Also Tore Some Shit Up
With plenty of audience singalong vibes to spare.
But Then Kendrick Lamar Showed Up
Can you imagine being somewhere when Kendrick Lamar shows up as a surprise guest? No, you can’t? Then the above clip of the audience losing it to Kendrick’s unplanned appearance while screaming along to “m.A.A.d. City” might help you visualize it.
and The Weeknd Also Showed Up
Because one surprise guest is never enough. The Weeknd also appeared out of the blue to perform “Low Life.” Things were (unsurprisingly) fantastic.
In other music news, Travis Scott, Lil Uzi Vert and Quavo have a track coming our way very, very soon. Get the details right here.
