Before You Go
Before going mainstream, Chynna had developed a close-knit bond with A$AP Mob. The Philadelphia rapper’s run with the Mob goes back to her connection to late A$AP leader Yams.
She reached out to visionary tastemaker A$AP Yams while she was still in high school, hoping he would take her under his wing. “I didn’t know the word ‘intern’ yet, but I was like, ‘Do you want someone to follow you around?’” she recalls. The two formed a friendship, which transformed into Chynna’s close affiliation with A$AP Mob as that crew ascended through rap’s ranks to become one of the most influential collectives of their generation.
