When you cover a song, you should know the words, but that’s just not how A$AP Rocky rolls. The rapper recently recorded a live session for BBC Radio 1’s Maida Vale studios in London and decided to attempt a cover of Foster the People’s smash hit, Pumped Up Kicks.
Unfortunately, A$AP didn’t know all the words and halfway through the song he gives up and sings, “I don’t know the words so I’m making them up…”
The rapper claims that he listened to the song every day last summer, but I guess the words just didn’t stick with him. A$AP’s cover isn’t the best, but it’s quite hilarious to listen to. Do it at your own risk below!
