To remember the legacy of A$AP Mob founding member A$AP Yams, who passed away in March 2015 of an accidental drug overdose, A$AP Rocky and A$AP Ferg are wrangling their rapper pals at the Theater at New York's Madison Square Garden for a Yams Day celebration on Wednesday (Jan. 18). 

The loaded bill includes Tyler, the Creator, Flatbush Zombies, Lil Uzi Vert, Playboi Carti, TDE, Danny Brown, T-Pain, Joey Bada$$, Kirk Knight, Cam'ron, Retch and Sha Hef led by the Mob's own A$AP Rocky and A$AP Ferg. 

The inaugural Yams Day, which took place at New York City's Terminal 5 last January, boasted a similar line-up headlined by A$AP Rocky and Joey Bada$$. 

Steven "A$AP Yams" Rodriguez, who passed away at the age of 26, continues to make an impact on the Mob's career. His standout tweets were also memorialized in a book released last year titled A$AP Yams Gems while the A$AP Mob launched the Always Strive and Prosper Foundation in his honor.

Tickets for this year's Yams Day cost $55 each. For more info, head to ticketmaster.com
