Hear Stro’s rendition of A$AP Rocky and Skepta’s ‘Praise the Lord’

Can we get more Stro over these types of beats, please?

What a wonderful Wednesday, it is. There’s tons of new music to listen to, and music videos to watch. Standing out with an impeccable flow, Stro usually takes whatever beat he’s on, and makes it his. This time, for the most part, the Brooklyn-native rapper keeps the flow of the original track—but chats about how much flavour he has, having his uncle’s game and his mother’s face. The original record is by A$AP Rocky and Skepta from the Harlem rapper’s new album: TESTING.

Can we get more Stro over these types of beats, please? His cadence is effortless. As the young God suggests, let’s have a word with Ebro [Darden] to tell him that he is the best rapper under thirty. According to the message on his SoundCloud page, a new project is on the way.


Additionally, in case you missed it, the Brooklyn boy has also freestyled over Pusha T’s ‘If You Know Now You Know’; produced by the all-too-controversial Kanye West. Listen to the record below. Yes, he does call out beautiful women, who exploit themselves on Instagram, for being homeless. Some other takeaway lines for me were about Complex’s white staff and the other about Raider Klan and A$AP MOB.
