Shelley Marshaun Massenburg-Smith a.k.a Big Baby D.R.A.M. stopped by NPR to give a Tiny Desk performance. Known for his eccentric style, the Virginia native performed "Cash Machine," "Cute," "Sweet VA Breeze," "Special," and "Broccoli." The intimate setting allowed fans to get an up-close and personal experience.

In between each performance, D.R.A.M. let fans in on what inspired each song.

"That first record that we did was 'Cash Machine.' I recorded it back in June of 2015 when I first got that big check. As soon as I saw that junk instant inspiration," D.R.A.M. laughingly explained to the audience before he performed "Cute."

In 2015, D.R.A.M. debuted his single, "Cha-Cha" and the world was introduced to his unique style and flow. The song was being played everywhere and then Drake's "Hotline Bling" hit airwaves. Although it was never confirmed or denied by Drake that he was directly inspired by "Cha-Cha," fans did voice how the song had a lot of similarities. D.R.A.M. later released, "Broccoli" in 2016,  and it too, became an instant hit, and was featured on his debut album, Big Baby D.R.A.M

D.R.A.M. hasn't slowed down, he is currently on his #BigBabyDramTour. Visit his site for tour dates and tickets. Check out his Tiny Desk concert in the clip above.
