Rick Ross performs his fan’s favorite songs for NPR’s “Tiny Desk (Home) Concert.”
The 45-year-old rapper performed various proclaimed hits, including “Super High” and “B.M.F.” from his Teflon Don album. “I want to thank NPR for bringing the Boss out,” Ross said as the transition begins. “My homies, we going to grind together since we’re going to shine together.”
During his set, he also performed “Aston Martin Music” alongside his talented background singers. He then moved on to his song “I’m Not a Star.” His oldie records “F*ckwithmeyouknowigotit” and “Tears of Joy” were also played. While “F*ckwithmeyouknowigotit” started, Ross opened up about how he recorded the track at Miami Hit Factory after receiving the beat from Timbaland, Complex Media reports.
Social distancing and COVID-19 restrictions are still in place. However, Ross worked with a live band and singer. He also brought out DJ Sam Sneak. The performance was a part of NPR’s Black History Month celebration.
Ross thanked his team and others in an Instagram post. “rp @ ydavila 🔥 Tune in TODAY 2/16 at 12 noon to see why Tiny Desk will never be the same again! Boss came through and KILLED it!!!!
