The Chicago rapper joins a roster of jazz all-stars to run through a couple of classics.

Ahead of this year’s Grammys ceremony, Robert Glasper rallied his fellow jazz giants — Terrace Martin, Derrick Hodge, Chris Dave and more —  for a live and direct jam session, assisted by the legendary Herbie Hancock.

Earlier this week, a clip from their performance was released featuring an appearance from Lupe Fiasco, who riffed with the group (and announced a few upcoming tour dates in rhyme,) before leading them through a pair of his classics. Together, they revamped the Chicago rapper’s breakout single “Kick Push” and his sophomore album standout “The Coolest,” for a packed crowd at the Teragram Ballroom.

But it’s only a warm-up for Fiasco. Next month, he’ll hit the road to perform his debut album, Food & Liquor, in its entirety. Seven dates have been announced thus far and tickets are on sale now.
