Kendrick Lamar, Young Thug, Tyler, The Creator and More Perform at 2017 Yams Day
The second annual Yams Day went down Wednesday night (Jan. 18), the Theater at Madison Square Garden rocking as all remembered the fallen A$AP Mob leader on the two year anniversary of his death. The bill boasted such names as A$AP Rocky, Danny Brown and Lil Uzi Vert, with Young Thug, Kendrick Lamar, The Weeknd, Tyler, The Creator and more touching the stage as well.
Catch footage from the concert event above and below including Kendrick Lamar performing "m.A.A.d. city," Young Thug performing "Best Friend" and The Weeknd performing "Low Life." "One time make some noise for A$AP Yams. RIP. That’s the brother right there. He’s for the culture. A$AP is the culture. XO is the culture," Weeknd said after A$AP Rocky told the singer he's gotta do one more song.
The entire A$AP Mob was out in full force as well, clips below showing Rocky and Tyler, The Creator performing "Telephone Calls" off Cozy Tapes Vol 1: Friends. The entire scene was so raucous, Danny Brown tweeted earlier this morning that he lost his phone at the event, punctuating the note with "lit."
Prior to the concert, many remembered Yams via social media, the MSG event a truly over-the-top celebration of his life. Peep video from the show up top and below, the crew likely to have a hard time topping this year's display.
