Chance the Rapper waxed poetic on a must-see Tiny Desk performance (catch it below). The Grammy- winning, rap activist, made an impromptu appearance at the NPR Music offices, dropping a stunning set that included Coloring Book favorite “Juke Jam”, a Stevie Wonder cover, and an off the dome poem entitled, “The Other Side”.

The Chicago hip hop star, who says he’s “big fan” of the intimate live music series, is hilariously interrupted in his Tiny Desk set, but keeps on rolling, even cracking a joke before getting back into it.

Chance the Rapper was in the Washington, D.C. area having played a sold-out set in Bristow, VA at the Jiffy Lube Live Center the night before.
