But the Harlem MC is nothing if not willing to take on a challenge, so when he had the opportunity to cover an old school rock-'n-roll jam came his way during his appearance on BBC Radio 1's Annie Mac show, he jumped on it.
A$AP covered The Castaways' 1965 hit "Liar Liar" during the show as his wild card performance, explaining that the song, plus his own "L$D" from his At. Long. Last. ASAP album are repping a "psychadelic era" of music that a lot of hip-hop fans aren't always familiar with.
"I just feel like this is one of my favorite songs to listen to," he said. "Liar liar, pants on fire."
As we know, A$AP's long been looking to supplement the sound of modern hip-hop with tunes inspired by this era because, as he says, "versatility is beautiful. I'm tired of hearing the same stuff over and over again on the radio."
Hit the 20:45 mark to hear his cover.
