Listen: A$AP Rocky covers "Pumped Up Kicks"

ASAP Rocky hat on

A$AP Rocky's highly-anticipated debut album may not be out just yet, but that didn't stop him from dropping by the Maida Vale studios to record a session for BBC Radio 1. The Harlem rapper brought listeners a live rendition of "Goldie" as well as a cover of Foster the People's massive 2011 hit "Pumped Up Kicks". Well, to be honest, he performed about half of the song and didn't know most of the lyrics. During his interview with host Zane Lowe, Rocky claimed he used to listen to the tune everyday last summer.
