Today’s Popcast, featuring the voices of Jon Caramanica and Ben Ratliff, focuses on the #1 debut of A$AP Rocky, Long.Live.A$AP, as well as a talk about A$AP Yams…
... And speaking of A$AP Yams, Jon Caramanica wrote up a nice chunky profile on the awesomely tattooed svengali:
you won’t find Yams behind the mixing boards in a studio, or in a corner office at a record label laboring over marketing plans, or huddled with designers creating a fashion line. Just 24 years old, he exerts his pull in extremely nebulous fashion. ”Rocky’s like Luke Skywalker, and I’m Yoda,” Yams said, cackling a bit, one recent afternoon in the South Bronx office that serves as a hangout space for the ASAP crew and where Yams lingers when not at the neat apartment he’s long shared with his mother in the Riverdale section of the Bronx.
