What began as a viral tweet has now come to fruition – NPR Music is closing out its Black Music Month Celebration with a Tiny Desk Concert featuring Cash Money Records legend, Juvenile.
You may recall that back in April someone tweeted, “Can we please get a @juviethegreat Tiny Desk @nprmusic @npr?”
The 48-year-old Magnolia Projects rapper, whose real name is Terius Gray, responded, “Wtf is a tiny desk 😂and no 😂😂”
After being informed, Juvenile changed his tune and tweeted:
Ok ok 😂😂 All Things Considered, 10k retweets and I will RECONSIDER doing @NPR Tiny Desk while drinking an ice cold #JuvieJuice from @UrbanSouthBeer!!!
And the rest is history!
Joined by none other than the great Mannie Fresh, Juvenile delivered the following set list of hits including:
- “Intro (feat. Mannie Fresh)”
- “400 Degreez (feat. Mannie Fresh)”
- “Bling Bling (feat. Mannie Fresh)”
- “Set It Off”
- “Slow Motion”
- “Rodeo (feat. The Amours)”
- “I Need A Hot Girl (feat. Mannie Fresh)”
- “Project Bitch (feat. Mannie Fresh)”
- “Back That Azz Up (feat. Mannie Fresh)”
