Roddy Ricch turned his NPR Tiny Desk Concert into his own NPR “Tiny Garage,” filming his performance at the legendary West Coast Customs repair shop backed by the full 1500 or Nothin’ live band ensemble. He was even joined by Ty Dolla $ign for his hit “Bacc Seat” from his debut album Please Excuse Me for Being Antisocial.

In a surprise move, Ricch decided to skip over his record-breaking hit “The Box”, instead opting for a more cohesive performance with “Perfect Time”, “Bacc Seat”, “High Fashion” and “War Baby” all aided by 1500 or Nothin”s infectious live instrumentation. NPR detailed how the performance came together in a press statement:

Roddy was originally booked to play the Tiny Desk in June, but once the cancellation of festival season was fully realized, he and his team began mapping out something special for our home series. He flexes his range from the beginning, playing a keyboard atop a desk at famed auto garage West Coast Customs in California. Backed by the juggernaut musical collective 1500 or Nothin’, this set exhibits the many dimensions of Please Excuse Me…

Recently, Roddy joined DaBaby for the post-apocalyptic music video for their “Rockstar” collaboration following his first GRAMMY win for Best Rap Performance for his “Racks in the Middle” verse.
