A$AP Rocky Covers Foster The People’s “Pumped Up Kicks”

    We can picture the way things went at A$AP Rocky’s BBC 1 session: perhaps he smoked a blunt or five, chilled for a bit, then thought, Hey, remember that song that wouldn’t stop playing on the radio? That seems like a good song to sing. And so A$AP Rocky did a mumbly, loopy cover of Foster The People’s “Pumped Up Kicks.” He didn’t do so hot with the lyrics (“All the other kids with the messed up kicks/Better run, better run/Outrun my son”) but we’ll forgive him — the way Rocky’s voice cracks on the word “cigarette” is worth a listen alone.
