Though he didn't win Best New Hip Hop Artist (Cardi B took home the award), Playboi Carti,  hit the stage to perform his two most popular tracks, "Wokeuplikethis" and "Magnolia."

Nominated for two awards—the aforementioned Best New Hip Hop Artist and Best Mixtape, Carti has undoubtedly had a great year so far, and his energetic performance showcased why he's one of rap's most popular rising stars.

Just last week, he dropped a video honoring the late Hugh Hefner, who inspired Carti's rap moniker.
