You’ve probably been bumping Theophilus London’s “Why Even Try” since we premiered the video this week. Now’s the chance to catch a sneak peek of the New York MC’s “Live In NYC” performance before we reveal the full-length show Tuesday, April 5.

In the video below, Theophilus London, known for effortlessly mixing genres and for his mixtapes, teases you with a little “Strange Love” from his live performance at the Studio at Webster Hall shot this past March. The sunglasses- and baseball-cap-clad rapper jams with his live band while simultaneously making bolo ties cool again and leaving us no choice but to play his Lovers Holiday EP on repeat.

And if you missed it, check out London’s “Why Even Try” video, in which our hero avoids relentless paparazzi. We can relate.
