In June, Chance The Rapper stopped by NPR for a Tiny Desk performance, and on Wednesday, the final product was made available for our viewing pleasure.

In addition to performing Coloring Book standout "Juke Jam" and a cover of Stevie Wonder's 1974 record "They Won't Go When I Go," the GRAMMY-award winner debuted a poem, entitled "The Other Side."

Halfway through his performance of "The Other Side," the Chicago native was interrupted by a voice on the loudspeaker in the NPR offices, but he casually rolled with the minor mishap, cracking a few jokes before starting over.

Joining Chance for his two musical performances were several of his Social Experiment brethren, including Nico Segal (trumpet), Peter Cottontale (keys) and Stix (drums).

Chance is the latest hip-hop artist to deliver a stirring Tiny Desk performance, following notable appearances by Anderson .Paak, Saul Williams, Gucci Mane and D.R.A.M.
