The Kang’s promotional train never really slows down. Three months after the release of his Troubleman: Heavy Is The Head album, T.I. hit up Jimmy Kimmel Live last night, to perform his next single, “Hello.”

Powered by L.A.-based band/production crew, 1500 Or Nothin’, Tip christened Kimmel’s Sony Outdoor Stage with the track, produced by Pharrell.

Absent from the set was Cee Lo Green, who sings the hook, but his presence was not forgotten. “We gon’ do this for my homeboy Cee Lo,” Tip said, before kicking off his verse.

Green and T.I. shot the music video for “Hello” earlier in the week, and broke down the visual concept to “Basically we ridin’ off into the sunset,” he told the site. “We’re headed to where the winners gather and saying ‘hello’ and ‘goodbye’ at the same time to the losers.”

Later in the show, the Atlanta native returned for an energetic performance of “Ball,” the lead single off Troubleman.

Peep the footage below.
