Members the A$AP Mob have been talking about the crew’s A$AP Yams inspired Cozy Tapes for several months.
“The music is pretty much done. It’s in the process being mixed,” A$AP Ferg told AllHipHop.com in June. “I don’t have a date, but it should be out real soon.”
The Mob is now ready to drop Cozy Tapes Vol 1: Friends on Monday, October 31.
Before the compilation hits the internet next week, the Harlem collective will release the singles “Telephone Calls” and “Runner” on Friday, October 28.
Cozy Tapes Vol 1: Friends is based on the blueprint formed by Yams prior to his death in early 2015.
“[Cozy Tapes is] the Yams album he was working on before he passed. It’s basically like an A$AP collective like your Ruff Ryders’ Ryde or Die Vol. 1 or [The Diplomats’] Diplomatic Immunity,” explained A$AP Rocky earlier this year. “[Yams] wrote down in his notes, and he would tell me who he wanted on there. We were about to start working on it.”
