Announced last week by worldwide broker and auction house Sotheby's, A$AP Rocky's Lab Rat performance art piece took place in New York City between 7:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. EST Sunday evening.

Without providing much information, Rocky tweeted out the same flyer that Highsnobiety received via email with the hashtag #TESTINGTHEWATERS.

The piece took place inside a glass box and featured the artist assisted by laboratory workers. The A$AP Mob were on hand too, dressed in attire that evoked the theme of the night as well as the title of Rocky's upcoming album, Testing.

Over the course of roughly one and a half hours, the Harlem rapper performed a series of tasks, including eating hot peppers, and spoke on many things including loss and the challenge of recording new music. As many anticipated, the performance ended with more information about his forthcoming album; specifically he unveiled the cover art for Testing and revealed that the album is complete and ready to be released, which he also shared on Twitter.

Watch the full performance above.

As seen below, the Fashion Killa wore a full outfit from Calvin Klein's 205W39NYC, the Calvin Klein ready-to-wear collection by Raf Simons, previously known as Calvin Klein Collection.

Now find out everything we know about A$AP Rocky's new album, Testing, here.
