Tyler, The Creator Performs On NPR’s “Tiny Desk Concert” [WATCH]

NPR has been making a lot of noise with their “Tiny Desk Concert” series. For the latest edition the news & entertainment outlet nabbed Tyler, The Creator to perform some of his latest singles off his GRAMMY-nominated ‘Flower Boy’ album.

Backed up by a complete live band and backup singers draped in all-white, Tyler kicked things off by performing “Boredom” and followed that with “See You Again.” He then apologized for not being a talented single as he sang Kali Uchis’ part.

“Excuse my voice,” he said as the crowd laughed. “I can’t sing but I don’t fucking care because it feels good like a warm shower, I think.”

For the finale Tyler performed “Glitter,” and then gave a brief speech before walking off.

“That was cool. I guess we’re done. Thanks.” Before walking away, he continued with his speech. “I’ve only worked with one band and I fucking hated it and I’ve always hated rap music with bands I wanna hear 808s and not an Incubus kick drum.”

According to NPR this was the first time the performance was filmed at night. NPR said it was per Tyler’s request.
