What was meant to be a fire performance from Future on NPR’s Tiny Desk took a turn in to something equally amazing. Future released his album The Wizrd last month which according to NPR staff Rodney Carmichael he was supposed to perform, but for whatever reason the “Mask Off” rapper did not show.
With a full band prepped and ready to perform they made the most of a situation with the lead from notable producer Zaytoven. Although no one was singing, Zaytoven brought the vibe on the keys, accompanied with drums, guitar, DJ Spinz scratching on the turntables, and beautiful sounds from a flutist. The band performed three tracks that Future and Zaytoven had worked on together, “Lay Up” and “Peacoat” off their 2015 mixtape Beast Mode, plus “Mo Reala” off of Zaytoven’s latest project Trap Holizay.
