Ahead of the release of his forthcoming Testing project, A$AP Rocky announced that he would be taking over Sotheby’s in New York for a live streamed art performance. A continuation of his relationship with the art purveyor, the bizarre event was titled Lab Rat and featured little to no information before beginning.

Just as curious viewers piled into Sotheby’s, sirens began to ring with a large cloth being drawn to reveal Flacko sitting in an ice bath within a glass enclosure. Assisted by a group of laboratory workers and the A$AP Mob dressed in Testing attire, Rocky performed a series of prompted tasks and spoke on loss, difficulties he faced while making his latest project, and more. The trials the Harlem rapper culminated in a dramatic ending with Rocky revealing the cover art for Testing and that his album is now complete for release.
