The British-Nigerian rapper delivers stripped-down versions of some of his most personal tracks for NPR's Tiny Desk series.

Mercury Prize-winning rapper Dave is one of the latest artists to appear of NPR's Tiny Desk series.

The British-Nigerian hitmaker, opens his set with his hit Burna Boy-assisted track "Location," joined by vocalist Tashera Robertson. We see Dave showcasing his singing voice as well as he and Robertson step in for Burna Boy's parts.

Next he performs "Black," which he says is about the Black-British experience. "Everyone's experience with being black is different, but this Is my take," he says.


For the finale, an endearingly nervous Dave, moves to the grand piano for a heartfelt rendition of his 2018 song "Hangman."

Dave's debut album Psychodrama was met with rave reviews when it dropped earlier this year, it earned him the prestigious Mercury Prize back in September, that same month the artist appeared on the hit Netflix series "Top Boy."
