Elsewhere in the episode, Minaj brought out Playboi Carti to perform his Die Lit track “Poke It Out.” Backed by leather-clad dancers, the Pinkprint rapper worked through a brightly-colored highly-choreographed routine that emphasized Minaj’s skill as both a rapper and stylist. Check videos of the performance below.
