Earlier this week saw New York’s Madison Square Garden host the second annual Yams Day, a concert celebrating the legacy of A$AP Yams. It featured a huge list of performers, including A$AP Rocky, A$AP Ferg, Danny Brown, Tyler, the Creator, ScHoolboy Q and more. And there were of course a couple surprises in store, with the biggest shock of the evening coming courtesy of an unannounced Kendrick Lamar set.
Sadly, not many of us were able to jet off to Manhattan this week to see it. For those of you stuck in this category, we hear you. So what we can offer you instead is the next best thing: a photo series by Orlando de la Cruz featuring highlights of the evening as up close and personal as possible. Browse the gallery above and, as always, RIP Yams.
In honor of Yams Day, we created a list of some of the wittiest, wisest and weirdest things the late emcee ever said. Take a look right here.
