“The best thing the VMAs can do is sit us behind Lady Gaga and Will Smith,” A$AP Ferg explains in the latest installment of The FADER’s Remember That Time. "Every time you would see the [VMAs] camera pass Lady Gaga, you see Will Smith smiling, and Yams would [flip off the camera].” While that particular VMAs in 2013 is remembered more for Miley Cyrus’s infamous stage antics with Robin Thicke, A$AP Ferg’s recollection of the night is made up of more candid moments: the mob accidentally stealing an SUV and Birdman’s Louis Vuitton duffle bag, A$AP Rocky getting up on stage and screaming “Trap Lord out now!” and being swarmed by fans while stranded at the airport before ultimately deciding to take the MTA home.

Ferg, Rocky, and top-model Chanel inspired A$AP fever in crowded metro tunnels of New York City that night, with cops shouting, “why would you do this?” Despite the chaos, A$AP Ferg remembers the night and Yams through small intimacies, particularly in his “No Wrinkled Silks” line on Ferg’s “Let It Go.” Now, whenever Ferg has silk on, he makes sure it’s not wrinkled.
