The clip for 'Yammy Gang' also pays tribute to A$AP Mob mastermind A$AP Yams
A$AP Ferg has unveiled the video for his new single ‘Yammy Gang’, which stars fellow A$AP Mob member A$AP Rocky.
The song, which featured on Ferg’s second studio album ‘Always Strive and Prosper’, features vocal contributions from Rocky, A$AP Nast, A$AP Twelvyy and Tatiana Paulino, the mother of the late A$AP Yams, who co-founded the A$AP Mob.
Set in the desert, the video sees Ferg, Rocky and other members of the Mob party in an unspecified desert, riding SUVs and dancing in an abandoned house. There are also archive shots of Yams on a tour bus and on stage that are interspersed with the main action. Watch the full clip below:
The song itself is a tribute to the late A$AP Yams, who passed away in January 2015 aged 26. Yams, whose real name was Steven Rodriguez, died from an “acute mixed drug intoxication”. Confirming the cause of death, Rocky told the New York Times in March of that year that Yams “always had a struggle with drugs. That was his thing.”
