NPR’s ‘Tiny Desk Concert’ series is absolutely brilliant! This week Chicago’s own Chance The Rapper stopped by with some of his close friends and it was super dope.
“I’m a really big fan of this show and I’ve seen some really dope artist come on this show,” said Chance while taking a break from the music to address the audience.
Chance held nothing back, reciting a poem that he wrote earlier during the day before he hit the show, called ‘The Other Side’. The words from his poem came from his commute from his hotel room in Washington D.C., to the NPR Music office.
“I still have all the keys that are of no use to me,” he began. “They used to, though. On the other side was a mansion on a hill, complete with L.A. pools and fireplaces and a rim made specifically for people that lie about being six feet to dunk on.”
The night before Chance performed for more than 23,000 at Jiffy Lube Live in Bristow, VA.
Chance closed out his performance performing his own rendition and cover of Stevie Wonder’s 1974 classic “They Won’t Go When I Go”. Press play above to check out his full Tiny Desk Concert performance.
