Although A$AP Yams’ recent passing was truly tragic, the world has been celebrating his life through old tweets and Tumblr posts that captured his witty personality and fierce passion for hip-hop. Now, Montreality brings us this interview with the beloved A$AP Mob founder that was uploaded last June, but was quickly taken down due to label issues.
Even if you managed to catch the interview first time around, this is definitely worth another watch as Yams contemplates his previous life as Napoleon, explains his unbreakable bond with A$AP Rocky and shares some wise words for those coming up in the industry.
This rap shit ain’t peaches and cream. You not gonna come in here and make a million off rip. You really gotta grind for this shit. Don’t chase the glamor and the glitz. Don’t chase none of that shit. If you in this for the lifestyle, then get the fuck out. Just be an observer from the sideline, you feel me?
