It’s been almost a year since A$AP Mob founder and rap tastemaker A$AP Yams passed away. Since then, A$AP Mob and the entire hip hop community at large have done well to memorialise A$AP Yams. The latest commemoration of Yams’ life is a book called “A$AP Yams Gems Book,” which compiles the most notable of his famously outlandish, all-caps tweets. Known for his unique and humorous timeline notes, Steven “A$AP Yams” Rodriguez poked fun at his lifestyle on his Twitter, which carries 98,000-plus followers;

“IN THE CLUB ASKING BITCHES IF THEY WANNA COLLABORATE ON A THINK PIECE WITH ME.”

The book was created by Bronx native and artist Ajani Brathwaite who told Billboard“My inspiration for making the book was to make the Internet tangible. We’re all on the Internet all day tapping away on our touch screen phones. I had this idea of turning the virtual world into something real; Something you can hold and feel.” He added; “I chose A$AP Yams because of the role he had in shaping today’s pop culture & because of his off-the-wall – yet, genuine – tweets.”

The compilation retails at $40, with all of the proceeds being donated to Yams’ family, and is currently available for pre-order, being released on Yams Day [January 18th]. Keeping Yams’ memory alive, A$AP Rocky and Joey Bada$$ are headlining the Yams Day tribute concert scheduled to take place at New York’s Terminal 5.
