Chance The Rapper Performs "Juke Jam," Debuts Poem for NPR Tiny Desk

"I haven't written a poem in a long time."

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.
