Tyler The Creator Stage Night Set In NPR's Tiny Desk Concert
Dim the lights, and the environment.
Tyler The Creator recently joined the class of artists that will be participating in NPR's Tiny Desk Concert series. The event marked his first appearance in the popular program that has seen the likes of T-pain, Chance The Rapper and Anderson .Paak present stripped down versions of their live sets for a close-knit audience.
Tyler, dressed in a white t-shirt and bucket hat, performed three songs from their latest album, Flower Boy: "Boredom", "to See again" and "Glitter."
At 20 minutes, that was the show that first night together ever, full of colored lights in a dimly lit room – a specific request from the 26-year-old, the rapper of the team. Throughout the intimate performance, the Odd Future founder clearly enjoyed himself, even raising his hands in the air at one point to grab the wave.
His performance on NPR comes from a couple of weeks after Flower Boy got a Grammy nomination for Best Rap Album. The LP was pitted against JAY-Z, 4:44, Kendrick Lamar, DAMN., Migos " Culture and Rapsody of Laila's Wisdom.
