In 2006, ASAP Yams formed the group A$AP Mob, in which a lot of people were featured, and he served as the group’s executive producer. First members of the group were A$AP Illz and A$AP Bari, and the collective would later include A$AP Rocky, A$AP Ferg, A$AP Nast and A$AP Twelvyy, among others. In 2012 he produced ‘’Lords Never Worry’’, the debut mixtape of the mentioned group with which they entered the music world, featuring 18 songs such as ‘’Thuggin’ Noise’’ and ‘’Full Metal Jacket’’. However, the mixtape received mostly negative response from critics and the audience, being harshly spoken of by one critic for ‘’poor execution of the beats”. ASAP Yam’s next project was the solo album of ASAP Rocky – ‘’Long. Live. ASAP’’ – which was his debut album released in early January 2013, featuring 12 songs such as the title song and ‘’Wild for the Night’’, and which received a positive response, peaking at number one on the US Billboard 200 chart and selling more than a million copies worldwide, gaining ASAP Yams recognition from the audience, and considerably boosting his net worth.
Continuing to work at a fast pace, Yams produced ‘’Trap Lord’’, the debut album of ASAP Ferg, consisting of 13 songs including ‘’Let It Go’’ and ‘’Fergivicious’’, which also received a positive response, climbing to eighth spot on the 2013 best albums list compiled by Complex, and peaking in ninth place on the US Billboard 200 chart. ASAP Yams’ last project was once again an album produced for ASAP Rocky, ‘’At. Long. Last. ASAP’’, distributed by A$AP Worldwide, Polo Grounds Music, and RCA Records, including 18 songs such as ‘’Holy Ghost’’, ‘’Fine Whine’’ and ‘’Lord Pretty Flacko Jodye 2 (LPFJ2)’’. The album achieved vast success, entering multiple charts such as Top 50 Albums of 2015, and The 50 Best Hip-Hop Albums of 2015 in addition to peaking at number one on the US Billboard 200 chart, and being certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America for selling over 500,000 copies. At that point, it was safe to say that ASAP Yams had a promising career ahead of him, however…
… when it comes to his private life, ASAP Yams didn’t share a lot of information on that topic. He was active on social media such as Twitter, having more than 140,000 followers.
