A$AP Rocky moshes to Nirvana’s ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ onstage at Lollapalooza – watch

The rapper was joined by Vic Mensa for the performance

A$AP Rocky has been filmed dancing to Nirvana classic ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ onstage at Lollapalooza festival.

Lollapalooza was held over the weekend in Chicago, with Rocky joined for part of the performance by fellow rapper Vic Mensa.

Following a rendition of Mensa’s recent hit ‘U Mad’, Rocky’s DJ dropped the Nirvana track, prompting a mass singalong from the crowd. It was followed by House Of Pain’s ‘Jump Around’.

Earlier this year, A$AP Rocky released new album ‘ALLA’. The record is the follow-up to 2013 debut ‘Long.Live.ASAP’. Guests on the album include Miguel and Rod Stewart. Kanye West appears on ‘Jukebox Joints’ while MIA features alongside Future on the song ‘Fine Whine’.

A$AP Rocky recently made a surprise appearance on US TV’s Late Late Show with James Corden last month (July 14), singing in a car with Stewart.

The Harlem rapper teaming up with Stewart and Corden for a rendition of latest single ‘Everyday’. The song itself samples Australian group Python Lee Jackson’s 1970 track ‘In A Broken Dream’, which Rod Stewart originally provided guest vocals for.

“I don’t know if I’ve ever felt as cool as I do in this moment of my life right now, I genuinely don’t,” Corden said, while Stewart referred to Rocky as a “lovely bloke”. Watch footage below.
