A$AP Rocky and Joey Bada$$ will headline a New York City tribute concert celebrating the life of A$AP Yams. The first ever “Yams Day” is scheduled for Jan. 18, the one-year anniversary of his death.

Additional “special guests” are expected to perform, although the names haven’t been officially announced (yet.)

Yams, 26, died from an accidental drug overdose. Rocky found his A$AP Mob brother, who had battled with sobriety, unconscious in his apartment at around 3 a.m.

“I just look at his face. I look at [A$AP] Lou. You could just tell. We knew,” Rocky told the New York Times earlier this year. “I was scared. I was wilding on everybody, like, ‘Who let him do drugs?,’ even though you can’t blame nobody.”

Ticket for the concert go on sale tomorrow (Dec. 18).
