Yams Day, A$AP Mob’s annual concert in honor of their late mastermind A$AP Yams went a little left this year.

According to XXL, the star-studded tribute concert to the brain behind the Mob had to be shut down early after a fight broke out backstage. While artists like Lil Yachty, Tekashi 69, and Playboi Carti were able to perform, the concert had to end early after the brawl and fears of gunshots caused a panic.

Before the fight, Rocky was able to share a touching tribute to his late friend.

“[A$AP Yams] shifted culture in little years, ya know I’m sayin’?” Rocky said from the stage.

“He represent all the weirdos, all the burnt-out muthaf*ckas, all the druggies, all the little n**gas that don’t know what they want to be tomorrow but they know they something. That’s the dream we had f**kin’ with Yams, you know what I’m talkin’ bout? I’ma tell y’all like this. Culture is beyond boundaries and colors and all that other s**t. It’s beyond ethnicity and nationality. Inspiration is inspiration. I want you to look at us as the Black Steve Jobs or some s**t like that. We want to be innovative and push the envelope.”

The party continued well after Rocky’s speech, with the self-styled Pretty Motherf**ker jumping in the crowd to party with the attendees. His joy was short-lived, however. People on the stage called him out of the crowd to let him know that things had gone sideways.

“Rocky, it’s Hector, bro. We gotta hold on one second, bro. It’s an issue going on back here,” he said from the stage. “It’s a security issue going on…we need you to come back over here, bro.”
