The last time Noname was on late-night TV was two years ago, accompanying collaborator Chance The Rapper on Saturday Night Live. But last night the Chicago rapper claimed the entire stage for herself with an appearance on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert. Backed by a full band, Noname performed a three-song medley off her flawless new album, Room 25: “Blaxploitation,” “Prayer Song,” and “Don’t Forget About Me.” Any jittery nervousness that might have been evident was swept away as she fell into the rhythm of her verses, reinforcing the fact that this woman was born for the spotlight.
Noname plays a Philly show at Union Transfer on January 12. Watch her debut performance below and get more information on the concert at the XPN Concert Calendar.
