A$AP Rocky pays tribute the late A$AP Mob co-founder A$AP Yams on the cover of his sophomore album, At.Long.Last.A$AP.
Revealed on his Instagram (which he has been using a lot of lately, read below), the artwork shows the “F*ckin’ Problems” rapper with a birthmark under his right eye and a cross tattoo under his left, paying homage to the producer who died on January 18, 2015, at the age of 26.
Yams, whose real name is Steven Rodriguez, executive produced Rocky’s 2013 gold selling debut Long.Live.A$AP., and Rocky told Billboard that he plans to “finish what he started” on the follow up album, slated to drop on June 2 with singles “Lord Pretty Flacko Jodye 2”, “M’s” and “Everyday”, featuring Miguel, Mark Ronson, and Rod Stewart. Listen to “M’s” below and “Everyday” is up for purchase on iTunes. The album is set to reported to feature collaborations with member of the A$AP Mob, FKA Twigs, Lykke Li, Yasiin Bey, Joe Fox, Danger Mouse, and Clams Casino.
Additionally, the Harlem rapper went on a rare Instagram barrage early Monday morning, posting several artistic shots and collages, even changing the aesthetic and layout of his account.
