Playboi Carti made his late night TV debut on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Monday, performing one of the best songs of 2017 so far, "Magnolia," off his recently released self-titled mixtape. From hitting the stage with Lil Uzi Vert at HOT 107.9's Birthday Bash this past weekend to being featured in a Sprint commercial to finding himself in the running for the song of the summer, the ASAP Mob affiliate is really having a moment right now, thanks to his hit track. Oh, and did we mention that he also received a shout out from Jay-Z during his now infamous tweetstorm where Hov referred to Carti's smash single as "incredible"? Yeah, that happened, too:
Riding high off being named a member of the 2017 XXL Freshman Class, Carti is everywhere these days. Not bad for a guy who started from humble beginnings, going "from bagging groceries to working at this place called H&M" to being "the hottest nigga at [H&M], ‘cause I was still in school" to sharing the stage with the likes of Drake at Adult Swim's Annual Upfront Party and The Weeknd at his New York City show in such a short amount of time.
As Carti continues to take himself to greater heights with his Jimmy Kimmel Live appearance, the future looks bright.
