GoCrapYourself12 karma

You're kind of living every big fan's dream right? You were originally a huge A$AP supporter until they welcomed you into the mob. How exactly did them asking you to be part of it come about and what were you doing before that?

ASAPLouBanga9 karma

Before that I was in between jobs, and it just came about after I met them at a show. I started hanging out with them and becoming close. Rocky needed an assistant at the time and asked if I wanted to come on board and do that and I accepted.

mrwaffleboy9 karma

Hows does Yams family feel about what your doing for Yams Day, and I personally think its a great way to represent the man? Also I really liked your guys mix on OVO sound the other day!

ASAPLouBanga11 karma

They are all for it - they love it, they are gonna be in attendance.

orangejulius6 karma

What's your favorite song that you've been part of?

What do you listen to when you go home and just want to relax?

Favorite album this year?

ASAPLouBanga11 karma

1 - I don't make music, but my favorite song that I've been in the studio to hear and to witness is probably Yamborghini High.

2 - Future and like R&B - R. Kelly, Ja Rule.

3 - This year so far, it's still early in the year, so not really. Nothing that's hit me yet.

ohMars6 karma

First off congrats on everything you achieved so far, keep doing your thing. I have two questions. What can we expect from the Cozy Tapes? And is it still possible to get a ticket for Yams Day? R.I.P Yam$. Thanks.

ASAPLouBanga16 karma

You could expect that ol' Flaco, a lot of guest appearances, and you can expect that ignorant young turn up music. And a lot of exclusives from the Mob.

The tickets are all sold out - make sure you get your tickets early next year!

liamstfu5 karma

CJMRTN125 karma

What were you thinking when you got up on stage with the mob for the first time in NY? Did you think that you would become part of it?

ASAPLouBanga11 karma

Um, I didn't think I'd become a part of it. I was just grateful for the experience to be up there.

Machineeee5 karma

How big of an impact did Yams have on you personally and the entire crew?

Not at all. Everyone has their own thing.

Blaineashley4 karma

What is the craziest thing you and the mob have done while on a tour?

ASAPLouBanga9 karma


When we were on tour with Tyler, we had a HUGE water fight backstage - throwing buckets of water on people, water balloons, ice. All the cameras got wet. It was crazy.
