Vince Staples graced the stage of NPR Tiny Desk (Home) Concert to perform a selection of cuts from his latest self-titled album.

The 12-minute set saw the artist perform “LAW OF AVERAGES,” “SUNDOWN TOWN,” “THE SHINING” and “TAKE ME HOME,” with guest artist Fousheé appearing alongside Staples to do the final track. He was also joined by Vince Staples producer Kenny Beats on bass, Gio “Dutchboi” Ligeon on guitar and vocals,  Reske on keys and vocals and  David Meyers Jr. on drums.

Vince Staples marks the artist’s first full-length effort since 2018’s FM!, which was also primarily produced by Kenny Beats. “It really gives much more information about me that wasn’t out there before,” Staples said of the album in a previous statement. “That’s why I went with that title. I feel like I’ve been trying to tell the same story. As you go on in life, your point of view changes. This is another take on myself that I might not have had before.”

“I’m a mind more than I am an entertainer to a lot of people,” he added. “I appreciate that my fanbase is willing to go on this ride with me. I’m ready to diversify what we’re doing and see how we affect the world.”
