The book honoring A$AP Yams has a release date.
The book, which collects words of wisdom from Yams’s Twitter, will be released to the public online August 12.
Ajani Brathwaite compiled the tweets and gave one of the first copies of the book to Yams’ mother.
According to the book’s product description, all proceeds from A$AP Yams Gems will go to the Always $trive and Prosper Foundation to help kids battling drug addictions.
A$AP Rocky, A$AP Ferg and the rest of the crew have paid tribute to their friend many ways including a celebration concert called Yams Day and an adidas collaboration. And don’t forget the epic video for “Yamborghini High.”
On August 12, you can purchase A$AP Yams Gems for $40 at YamsGems.bigcartel.com.
