WATCH: Ty Dolla Sign Honors Mac Miller With Tiny Desk Performance of ‘Cinderella’

Ty Dolla Sign stopped by NPR for a special Tiny Desk performance that paid tribute to his close friend and late-rapper Mac Miller. Ty Dolla Sign gave the performance after his own Tiny Desk set last week after being reminded that it was almost exactly a year ago that Mac Miller was sitting in that same spot.

As a result, Ty Dolla Sign performed a special rendition of his collaboration with Mac Miller, “Cinderella.”

“I reminded Ty that he sat at the desk almost a year to the day that his friend, Mac, delivered what would be one of his final performances,” NPR’s Bobby Carter wrote of the performance. “The band paused and huddled. They mulled over a few notes in a matter of seconds then gave me a signal that they were ready. The room was silenced and the cameras started rolling again.”

Malcolm James McCormick, best known by his stage name Mac Miller was an American rapper, singer and record producer from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He who was born on January 19, 1992 and raised in the Point Breeze part of Pittsburgh. Malcolm would go on to attend Winchester Thurston School and Taylor Allderdice High School.

You can listen to the special performance below.


Ty Dolla Sign – ‘Cinderella’ (Tiny Desk Performance)

[Intro: Ty Dolla $ign]

Uh, $ign
Oh no, no, no, no
No, no, no, no, no ($ign)
Aye—

[Hook: Ty Dolla $ign]

I been waitin’ all night for this moment
I been waitin’ all year for this moment
I been picturing you takin’ off your clothes for me
I been literally curvin’ all these hoes for you
Daddy told you, better bring your ass home
Cinderella better get your ass home
Man I swear the parents just don’t understand
You ain’t gotta be old to be a man
Take my hand, come with me to my room
Girl I got a suite at the SLS
I already know you got expensive taste
Take my hand, follow me to my room
Tell your little friends you gon’ be alright
Girl I got a plan for the whole night

[Verse 1: Mac Miller]

Okay your legs like a store they open up
And you got people in line
Been here every night for weeks at a time
You in my dreams, that’s why I sleep all the time
Just to hear you say I love you, just to touch you
Just to leave you behind
I told you, you don’t have to worry, you’ll be fine
The type of thing I heard it happen all the time
Yeah, I just wanna see you fly
Because your fragrance got me faded, you be keepin’ me high
Said nothin’ better than the first time
I’ll be at your service like the check-in at the curbside
You don’t have to spend another second on this Earth dry
Wet you like a rebel, go a second and a third time
Left you a perverse mind
And when you hungry, I can chef you up a stir fry
Get you some dessert wine, elevate yah third eye
First prize, Nobel, get a piece
Your clothes off, turn around, let me see

[Hook: Ty Dolla $ign]

I been waitin’ all night for this moment
I been waitin’ all year for this moment
I been picturing you takin’ off your clothes for me
I been literally curvin’ all these hoes for you
Daddy told you, better bring your ass home
Cinderella better get your ass home
Man I swear the parents just don’t understand
You ain’t gotta be old to be a man
Take my hand, come with me to my room
Girl I got a suite at the SLS
I already know you got expensive taste
Take my hand, follow me to my room
Tell your little friends you gon’ be alright
Girl I got a plan for the whole night

[Verse 2: Mac Miller]

Yeah, okay I came up with a plan, it was take you by the hand
And bring you somewhere where the sand is
Soon as we landed
We went straight into the room
And played the music, started dancing
You was taking off your pants
It look like Dorothy ain’t in Kansas anymore
I do you like a chore
We started on the bed and then we moved it to the floor
You started getting crazy, told me fuck you like a whore
I thought you was an angel, now you yellin’ to the Lord
You used to tell me all the time I ain’t your type
Now you always wanna spend the night
Now I’m doing everything you like
When I’m inside your pussy, damn it feels so right
Yeah, but I still respect the game
Every time I’m out of line you always set me straight
The sex is great, for Heaven’s sake I need it every day
I yell your name, Cinderella
Never gonna find nobody better, all my life…

[Hook: Ty Dolla Sign]

I been waitin’ all night for this moment
I been waitin’ all year for this moment
I been picturing you takin’ off your clothes for me
I been literally curvin’ all these hoes for you
Daddy told you, better bring your ass home
Cinderella better get your ass home
Man I swear the parents just don’t understand
You ain’t gotta be old to be a man
Take my hand, come with me to my room
Girl I got a suite at the SLS
I already know you got expensive taste
Take my hand, follow me to my room
Tell your little friends you gon’ be alright
Girl I got a plan for the whole night

[Outro: Mac Miller]

Hey now, I’m saying
My only way out is the way in
I won’t stop ’til you’re mine, no way
Well, all my days now, they changin’
I got angels, no more Satan
Looks like God’s on my side, this time
Well, I been meanin’ to tell ya
You lookin’ better every day, write you letters
It’s only right that right after love, I write my name
If it’s forever or never, it’s all the same
Under the weather
Feel much better when that weather isn’t rain, yeah
Ooh Cinderella, don’t you run out of time
It feels like you’ve been taking all day
Wherever you came from, wherever you going
I promise I’m not far behind, yeah
So don’t you dare throw this away
I been meanin’ to tell ya
You look better every day, write you letters
It’s only right that right after love, I write my name
And if it’s forever or never it’s all the same
Under the weather
Feel much better when that weather isn’t rain
