Chance the Rapper blessed the NPR office with a special Tiny Desk performance, recently, that included a poem he’d written in the car ride to the office and a cover of Stevie Wonder’s “They Won’t Go When I Go.”

The poem, titled “The Other Side,” laments the luxuries available to the 24-year-old rapper that he has no use for. The poem was shared between performances of Coloring Book’s “Juke Jam” Wonder’s hit song.
