Kanye West and A$AP Rocky perform during the 2016 Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival Weekend 1 at the Empire Polo Club on April 15, 2016 in Indio, Calif.  

The A$AP Mob released Vol. 3 of their AWGE DVD series on Monday (July 23). A five-minute clip brought viewers inside a Dec. 2017 NYC studio session to witness magic from Kanye West, A$AP Rocky, and A$AP Ferg in their element. The video finds Yeezy behind the boards chopping up an otherworldly sample while bobbing his head and aligning himself with the sound. West then kicks off the freestyle and is later joined by members of the Mob.

The hard-hitting beat is looped with a distorted voice saying, "The music you are about to hear is above you." West kicks his feet up while rocking an Alyx chest rig, setting the tone for what's to come. "It's the alien/It's the monster and I don't know what to say to him/I got date again, I was late again/Head up ate it then/And I was faded then/Well, fuck it then/Got a gun tuck it then/Real friends, you're stuck with them," he rhymes off the top. 

Rocky joins in on the freestyle nearly two-minutes later and snaps on the beat. "Above you like I am the Lord man/Tell the bitch suck my long golden sword/Swore to Lord I said it before/Man curious like George/I fuck your broad when I'm bored/Never gave a fuck about shit I can't afford/I just get it then I explore it then I ignore it/Until the day came, when I got a chance or advance and I bought what I wanted for my parents," the Harlem native raps.
