Playboi Carti was the musical guest on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last night (January 20). Carti performed his Whole Lotta Red track “Slay3r” with a full band and dancers as a circle of small flames blazed behind them. Watch it go down below.
Tonight’s episode of Fallon happened to fall on Questlove’s 50th birthday. During the show, the Roots’ Black Thought gifted him a heart-shaped ruby brooch. Jimmy Fallon gave him Morris Day’s mirror, signed by Morris Day himself. Watch that below, too.
Whole Lotta Red is Carti’s follow-up to 2018’s Die Lit. The new 24-track LP features appearances from Kid Cudi, Future, and Kanye West, with production from Pi’erre Bourne, Art Dealer, F1lthy, Juberlee, Richie Souf, Wheezy, and more.
