Lil Baby and Lil Durk Among Hip-Hop Stars Honored With Yammy Awards

The honors were introduced as a feature of Yams Day, which respects the late A$AP Yams.

Lil Durk and Lil Baby should stand by until March 14 to see whether they will win in their classes at the 63rd yearly Grammy Awards, however they and two other hip-bounce stars were respected on Monday (Jan. 18) with Yammy Awards as a component of Yams Day 2021.

Yams Day honors A$AP Yams (genuine name Steven Rodriguez), the fellow benefactor of A$AP Mob, the hip-bounce aggregate that has generated such stars as A$AP Rocky, A$AP Ferg and Playboi Carti.

The yearly accolade is hung on Jan. 18, which was the date of Rodriguez’s passing in 2015 at age 26. The current year’s occasion, which was held for all intents and purposes due to the pandemic, incorporated 60 minutes in length narrative about A$AP Yams, music sneak peaks from A$AP Rocky and the Yammy grant introductions.

Lil Durk, who is a twofold Grammy chosen one for “Giggle Now, Cry Later,” a collab with Drake, won the new level honor. Lil Baby, a Grammy candidate for “The Bigger Picture,” won the Yammy for Yamborghini High honor.

Two other Yammy winners – Young Thug and Teezo Touchdown – were not Grammy-selected for the current year.
