There aren’t many Tiny Desk Concerts that feature hip-hop producers, but Kenny Beats’ newest album, LOUIE, provides a chill, organic sound that is perfect for the setting. Today NPR shared the full performance, which features Kenny Beats on the drums and eight other band members, including JPEGMAFIA, Remi Wolf, and more “friends and collaborators.”
Kenny Beats performed three tracks from LOUIE: “Still,” “Last Words,” and “Rotten.” The track selection and performances appear to be tailor-made for Tiny Desk Concert, and they come out flawlessly. LOUIE was one of our favorite hip-hop albums of last year, and this set reminds us how meaningful it truly is.
You can watch Kenny Beats and his collaborators deliver a lovely 11-minute live performance below. Enjoy!
