Noname performs on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon with Smino and Saba on Jan. 7, 2019.

Noname asserted herself as an artist to watch going forward with the impressive Room 25 in 2018. The Chicago native looks to pour that momentum into the new year, taking her talents to The Tonight Show Monday night (Jan. 7) alongside fellow Chi-town-bred artist Saba and all-around talent Smino for an energetic "Ace" performance.

The St. Louis crooner -- laced in a stylish red Billionaire Boys Club crewneck sweater -- first set the tone for what was to come with a soothing assist. Noname then took the baton and implemented her signature storytelling style of rap to let everyone know the burgeoning trio is here to stay. "Smino Grigi, Noname, and Saba the best rappers/ And radio n----s sound like they wearing adult diapers," rhymed the 27-year-old.

The Pivot Gang collective member finished things off by speeding up his cadence to jampack his guest verse with an array of content. "And I can't recall the last time that my live show was intimate/ The price for the show just went up, in addition the tickets did/ They didn't figure it out in 2012 so I just said fuck it/ 'Cause we can drop all our albums ourselves, yeah I just said fuck it," Saba confidently rapped.

Noname's Fallon appearance serves as the second late-night cameo of her career, as she made her solo television debut on Colbert back in October. She also kicked off 2019 (Jan. 1) with the release of the Phoelix-assisted "Song 31," her first single since dropping Room 25
