ASAP Rocky stopped by Triple J to contribute to their ongoing Like a Version series, in which artists cover a famous song of their choosing. The Testing rapper came through with a pretty bold choice for his performance, offering up his take on Otis Redding's 1968 song, "(Sittin' On) The Dock Of The Bay" accompanied by a full band.
As far as covering iconic vocalists go, Rocky really couldn't have picked a more difficult voice to emulate. Thankfully, he opts for his own approach on the song, delivering a song that pays tribute to the original while playing up to his own strengths.
Rocky stopped by the Triple J studio before taking the stage at this year's Listen Out festival in Sydney and Melbourne, and he also brought along a guest, too. While there he also gave a live performance of his Skepta collaboration, "Praise The Lord (Da Shine)." Once again joined by a full band, who gave the original production a colorful boost, the performance provides a fun take on the original.
While at the studio, the two also spoke about going platinum for their single "Praise The Lord," as ABC Australia notes. "Me and Skeppy, we've been fam for years," Rocky explained. "Our family is family. If I'm in London, or my people in London, you know where they at. He takes care of us and vice versa. Honestly for us, being so genuine as artists, we don't broadcast or like to showcase or display our relationship just for the sake of clout."
