Jidenna Impresses With NPR Tiny Desk Concert
A drug of performance.
The rapper/singer Jidenna is joined by NPR to take part in the latest installment of his iconic Tiny Desk Concert series for a video that was posted this week.
Small Table, Concerts in general, gives the artists an opportunity to perform his music in a more relaxed and informal atmosphere and Jidenna embraced that atmosphere, abandoning his typical measure of the demand attire in favor of a t-shirt with short sleeves, colors and baseball cap.
The Wisconsin artist performed some songs from his first studio album, The Boss, singing with a microphone toy. He wasted no time trying to get the crowd of NPR staff to loosen up and sing "Bounce, bounce, bounce, bounce" chorus of their song "Trampoline" with him.
Jidenna also had some words to NPR's mission, saying: "it Is a pleasure and an honor to be here with all of you. I didn't know that there were so many of you who work here, but it makes sense because you really are a beacon of light to, not only for the radio, but the information in this information age, so thank you for doing that job. Long life to NPR, long life to the Small Table, long Live The Chief".
This led to him performing his song "long Live The Chief" before closing on "Bambi."
Take 12 minutes out of your day to watch the performance.
