Those who know already know: Jr. Gong can go! Not leaning on the Marley name or legacy, rather he is upholding it! Watch a small sample of his doing so above.

NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert Series Presents: Ty Dolla $ign Paying Tribute To Mac Miller (Video)

Mannnnn… RIP Mac Miller #Feels

Allow yourself to catch the vibe on this one, hold it in, feel it. Words of tribute at the top. Silky R&B through to the end. Short and sweet. And dope.

(Bookended with another set of respect and RIP shouts. Nice.)

NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert Series Presents: H.E.R. (Video)

A whole lot less stand-offish and enigmatic for this Tiny Desk set, as she should be, H.E.R. treats the intimate gathering of souls to warm blend of R&B and Soul, peppered with moments of Hip-Hop adjacent styled delivery. Enjoy!

Cool shades. Cute singer 😉

NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert Series Presents: Big Boi (Video)

Big Boi comes down from The Planet Of Stankonia to do a Tiny Desk Concert… ON IT!

The energy in the room was buoyant and vibrant from the moment they walked in the door. OutKast star Big Boi, Sleepy Brown of the prolific Atlanta production collective Organized Noize, and their eight-member backing band have been working together for 20-plus years, and their chemistry is instantaneous and undeniable.

This the loudest I have ever heard a Tiny Desk Concert be. Dope!

NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert Series Presents: Smif N Wessun (Video)

Not like they don’t belong on this forum. They do. Just did not expect to see them featured in their own Tiny Desk Concert. Very glad Smif-N-Wessun are though!

Brooklyn-bred Hip-Hop duo Smif-N-Wessun – consisting of partners in rhyme, Steele and Tek – illuminated the Tiny Desk with their signature, 80-proof poetry: straight, no chaser. Their music, inspired by their gritty and pre-gentrified Bedford-Stuyvesant and Brownsville neighborhoods, offers the vocabulary of veterans who survived the grimy streets. These original members of the Duck Down Records group Boot Camp Clik represent quintessential ’90s true-school Hip-Hop from the bedrock, when Timberland boots were standard issue. Backing Steele and Tek for the first time is D.C.’s own Black Alley band.

(That “One Time” they wrapped with sounds extra nice.)
