Griselda made their late night TV debut on The Tonight Show.

Griselda is officially having their moment.

The Buffalo, New York crew — which consists of Westside Gunn, Conway the Machine, and Benny the Butcher — appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. While there they performed “Dr. Bird‘s,” the standout single from their debut studio album WWCD.

This has to be the hardest rap group to ever perform on The Tonight Show. The significance wasn’t lost on Questlove. Before the performance aired he gave a glowing review of the crew that’s been bubbling for the last couple of years.

The temptation to go overboard & scream my fandom on the music of @Westsidegunn & @whoisconway & @getbenny (@griseldarecords) is a Classic ahmir move 1) say a grand hyperbolic statement and watch yall brawl & hem & haw in the comments. 2) shrug it off—- #Griselda isn’t the second coming of Wu or the return to grimey loop based east coast New YAWK hip hop. Imo—it just is what it is. DOPE. Hip hop should rule break. They don’t need no hooks. They don’t wrap it in a bow with 16 bars. Sometimes there are NO drums. It’s uncomfortable to listen to. It’s numbing. Your parents SHOULD be worried. The loops are all over the place. ——-it’s everything hip hop IS. I’m SO glad they chose @fallontonight to make their debut. Trust me, this is the MOST toned down co-sign I could ever give. Don’t miss em!

Westside Gunn also showed off the coat he was rocking through the performance: a lavish KidSuper coat that made its debut in Paris.

The performance has topped off a strong two month stretch for Griselda. The group has released a Hype Williams-directed video, did an interview with Rap Radar, was shouted out by Drake, and had their music played at the Off-White show in Paris. Things are only looking up for the crew.
