If there’s a new gleam in ILOVEMAKONNEN’s eyes, remind yourself that a Grammy Award nomination will do that to an artist. Such was apparent last night (December 9) during the rapper/singer’s performance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.

This has been a year of firsts for ILOVEMAKONNEN. He’s gone from underground artist to an OVO affiliate with an award nomination on music’s biggest stage in a matter of months. And in his late night television debut, he rightfully performed his hit single “Tuesday” backed by The Roots.

Peep the footage below.
