Praise The Lord (Da Shine) – A$AP Rocky Featuring Skepta | is one of the better tracks on A$AP Rocky’s largely unimpressive new album Testing.

A$AP Rocky and Skepta pay tribute to their hometowns in the grunge-y new video for their collab "Praise the Lord (Da Shine)"--and, turns out, international living isn't so different after all.

A$AP Rocky has released a new video for “Praise the Lord (Da Shine),” the Skepta-featuring track from his new album Testing. It’s a split-screen chronicle of New York City and London, each rapper’s respective hometown, in bright neons and cool-toned film. The video follows each MC with their crew, splicing trippy visuals, cityscape b-rolls, and quick cameos by artists like Tyler the Creator, before Rocky and Skepta rendezvous at the end.

[Verse 1: A$AP Rocky]
Get it, text a message, I don’t know the number
Flexin’ on these niggas, every bone and muscle
Steady taking shots, but never hurting nothing
Even then you don’t worry none
And I’d like to give a shoutout to my niggas with the game plan
And shout-outs to my niggas with escape plans
Uh, twenty bands, rain dance
We can either rain check or we can make plans
Pockets loaded, rocket loaded, okay lets rock and roll this
Time to go, lock, stock and two smoking barrels
Locked and loaded
Diamonds glowing, chart-climbing on ’em
You’d think I’m jumping out the window how I got ’em open
Line around the corner, line ’em up to block and over
Times I even stop the smoking when it’s time to focus
My shades, Dior, my pants, velour
Create, explore, expand, conquer

 

 

[Chorus: Skepta]
I came, I saw, I came, I saw
I praise, the Lord, then break, the law
I take, what’s mine, then take, some more
It rains, it pours, it rains, it pours
I came, I saw, I came, I saw
I praise, the Lord, then break, the law
I take, what’s mine, then take, some more
It rains, it pours, it rains, it pours

[Verse 2: Skepta]
Yeah, I sold, the pack, the loose, the hard (yeah)
I listened, to X, I peeped, the bars (yeah)
The snakes, the rats, the cats, the dogs
The games, a trap, protect, your heart (yeah)
I waited, in line, return, refine
The new, design, it’s time, to shine
To shine, to shine, to shine, to shine
I hustle, I flex, the world, is mine
So please, believe, allow, the greaze
These niggas, disease, don’t speak, we squeeze
I make, the devil, go weak, the knees
You hate, you’re lame, your loss

 

 

[Chorus: Skepta]
I came, I saw, I came, I saw
I praise, the Lord, then break, the law
I take, what’s mine, then take, some more
It rains, it pours, it rains, it pours
I came, I saw, I came, I saw
I praise, the Lord, then break, the law
I take, what’s mine, then take, some more
It rains, it pours, it rains, it pours

[Verse 3: A$AP Rocky & Skepta]
Uh, she came, I came, now what’s, my name?
My chain, my pants, my pants with the chain
They know, it’s me, the hat and the shades
They heard, my voice and they ran to the stage
My Vans, my braids, my mans, my babe
My girls, my ex, my hoes that I left
The way, I stepped out the car, that’s a flex
Give thanks, get fresh, praise the Lord then finesse, bless

[Chorus: Skepta]
I came, I saw, I came, I saw
I praise, the Lord, then break, the law
I take, what’s mine, then take, some more
It rains, it pours, it rains, it pours
I came, I saw, I came, I saw
I praise, the Lord, then break, the law
I take, what’s mine, then take, some more
It rains, it pours, it rains, it pours
