Playboi Carti Performs at the Birthday Bash ATL The pop Up Edition Concert at Philips Arena on June 17, 2017 in Atlanta.

After getting JAY-Z's stamp of approval as an "incredible" song during last week's Twitter spree, Playboi Carti's "Magnolia" rocked the Jimmy Kimmel Live! stage Monday night (June 19).

The Atlanta rapper performed his breakout hit on the late show off his self-titled album backed by his DJ, a drummer and two keyboardists. His Kimmel performance follows his recent appearances at Atlanta's Hot 107.9 Birthday Bash and comes ahead of his forthcoming 35-date U.S. tour, which kicks off this weekend at BET Experience in Los Angeles. 

"Magnolia" and Playboi's Lil Uzi Vert collaboration "Woke Up Like This" have recently hit the Billboard Hot 100, currently sitting at No. 40 and 80, respectively.
