Playboi Carti is a rapper, record producer, songwriter and model from Atlanta, Georgia. So he pretty much does it all. Carti was rapping at an early age but used a different name; Sir Cartier. He changed his name to Playboi Carti in 2012 when he was signed to rapper Father’s label; Awful Records. He started gaining attention when he came out with his singles "Broke Boi" and "Fetti." Carter's music has a playful vibe, and Complex called his music style "spare and repetitive, more concerned with flow and catchy phrases." You hear his specific style in Carti's hit songs like, wokeuplikethis*, which has more than 167 million streams on Spotify.
Carti's most popular song and the one I know we're all waiting for; Magnolia, has over 259 million streams on Spotify. It also became one of hip-hop's most popular anthems and went platinum last year.
Playboi Carti has taken the hip-hop world by storm and will be sure to do the same on our Juice Jam stage.
