Album: At.Long.Last.A$AP (2015)
  • On January 18, 2015, A$AP Rocky's longtime friend, mentor and business partner A$AP Yams, aka Steven Rodriguez, passed away of an accidental drug overdose, aged 26. Yam's death greatly affected the development of the At. Long. Last. A$AP. album.

    This is the record's final track and at the end of the song, Rocky pays tribute to his former mentor. Yams can be heard laughing before boasting about the impact his crew will have in the music industry.

    Grab y'all surfboards 'cause y'all got y'all boogie boards right now.
    Y'all just gonna keep watching us…and we just gonna keep surfing on these mothaf---as.
  • The song also boasts cameos from New York rapper Mos Def - who changed his name to Yasiin Bey but reverts to his former rap moniker here - and A-Cyde.
  • This samples The Jaggerz's 1968 single "Gotta Find My Way Back Home."
