According to reports, Yams’ funeral service went down in late January in New York City.
On Sunday, late A$AP Mob founder Steven Rodriguez, aka A$AP Yams, was celebrated with a quiet memorial service at New York’s famous Frank E. Campbell Funeral Chapel, an Upper East Side funeral home that has in the past hosted similar such sendoffs for celebrities like Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Ed Koch, Judy Garland, John Lennon, Heath Ledger, Aaliyah, Notorious B.I.G., and most recently, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Joan Rivers.

Wu-Tang Clan’s Ghostface Killah shed some light on Yams’ passing a few months ago.
“Time heals all wounds,” Ghost added. “One day, we all gotta go, but everything expires. I just had to sit my man down and let him know, ‘After you done with them sneakers, if you fast-forward, you’re never going to put them on no more.’ That’s gone. These clothes are gone. You fast-forward time right now and watch me, all this is off and new things are coming on and even those goes.’ … It’s the memory that really gets you.” (Complex News)
After cutting a Utah performance short last month, A$AP Rocky admitted he was in a state of mourning.
“That performance –that was just going to stop me from crying,” Rocky said, speaking for the first time in detail about Yams’ death. “I had to address it, because the whole time I was rapping and I wasn’t into it, which is sad, but I just gotta keep it real. I can’t front. It’s even harder knowing that I gotta fly out in less than an hour just to go bury him. That’s the part that eats at me.” (Billboard)
