Such a tease. His fans have been waiting for album number two, the much anticipated Whole Lotta Red, for quite some time now. In Playboi Carti’s Instagram posts they look for clues and signs. But, no, nothing yet. In 2017 the Atlanta-born rapper and fashion icon, who’s real name is Jordan Carter, dropped his mixtape debut featuring his wildly popular single Magnolia, referencing the Magnolia Projects in New Orleans. The same year he guested on the Lana Del Ray song Summer Bummer alongside A$AP Rocky. His first official album Die Lit was released in 2018.
Playboi Carti is known for his spare and repetitive rap style, or as The Fader described it in a cover story last year; ”short and repetitive bursts of words punctuated by constant ad-libs that become part of the beat rather than standing on their own”. Interesting fact: Playboi Carti was born on September 13, 1996, the very same day that Tupac Shakur died.
