A$AP Rocky released his third studio album TESTING last Friday. “Praise the Lord (Da Shine),” which features a guest verse from Skepta, is one of the standout songs from the album. The folks from Genius linked up with Pretty Flacko himself to break down the lyrics on the song for their Verified series.

On his lyric “text a message / I don’t know the number,” Flacko says that it’s based off of “real life sh*t.” “If you get a call and you don’t know the number, don’t pick up – especially if you are somebody of status,” he says. “You should definitely wait till that call’s ended and check and see if you got any text message history with that number before you pick up, because it might be a prank or somebody you don’t want to speak to.”
