The latest edition of the fan-favorite series premiere on Tuesday and features Ross performing a melody of hits that showcase just how versatile of a musician he really is. The rapper started off his serenade with the soulful track, “Super High” off of his Teflon Don album before transitioning to his smash hit, “B.M.F.”

“I want to thank NPR for bringing the Boss out,” Rozay says in the beginning of the concert. “My homies, we going to grind together since we’re going to shine together.”

After that, the Florida native went into one of his more sultry songs, “Aston Martin Music” which let the background singers flex their vocal cords. Once that piece was finished, Ross brought the energy right back up with his single, “I’m Not a Star.”

With so many hits made throughout the years, Ross also took a moment to reflect on his incredible career during his performance.

“So many inspired the Boss,” he said. “I could look at any brother on the street and get some inspiration from them, regardless of how many followers you got on social media, regardless of what you’re riding in. I could learn something from you. I ain’t scared to. Let’s make sure we keep building.”

Just like all of our favorite Tiny Desk performances, Rick Ross was assisted by a live band and some background singers, which brought his performance to the next level. He also brought his DJ, Sam Sneak, to help him with the performance, which is part of NPR’s celebration of Black History Month.  So far this month, the coveted NPR series has featured 2 Chainz, rising R&B crooner KeiyaA and jazz flutist Melanie Charles.
