Scott on getting his start with A$AP Mob: “When I moved to [New York] for good, all my friends up here would just want me to play music at the get togethers or what not because I would always play obscure music from all over. Before Rocky started to pop off, Yams and Rocky asked me to DJ for him. I had never really DJed real spots. It was a quick transition for all of us.” —from a 2016 interview with Ultraolive
