Last month, Chance the Rapper surprised the staff of NPR when he dropped by and participated in their Tiny Desk Concert series. Today, footage from his entire performance has been released.
Before diving into "Juke Jam" from his 2016 opus Coloring Book, Chance spent his introduction reveling in the office's small stage setup. “I didn’t know it was actually, actually in an office," quipped Chano. After delivering a soothing rendition of "Juke Jam" with his band and back-up singers, the Chicago staple recited a new poem titled "The Other Side." To punctuate his 12-minute set, he covered Stevie Wonder's 1974 Fullingness' First Finale cut “They Won’t Go When I Go.”
Hopefully, Chance's success in June pushes all the way through the summer. So far, he's already helped MTV's Wild 'N Out earn massive ratings for its debut episode, and scored the BET Humanitarian Award during the 2017 BET Awards last month.
