Playboi Carti: The Face Of Rap's Future
Atlanta born-and-raised rapper Playboi Carti captured mainstream attention as an affiliate of A$AP Mob in the mid 2010s. Rising to the fore of the 'mumble rap' genre, the 21 year-old hip hop upstart honed his craft on collabs and mixtapes featuring the likes of Lil Uzi Vert and Young Thug. Praised for his playful, hard-hitting and melodically rich tunes, Carti continues to defy conventions with the release of his critically acclaimed debut album Die Lit, following its success with a triumphant North American tour this summer.
The album finds Carti at the top of his game and unafraid to not only break the rules but mould them to his own outrageous vision for the future of hip hop. Marrying street rap with internet memes, an unbridled energy and slick production, the sonically daring young innovator pushes his art to its heady extremes, tying things together with a laid back charisma and swagger that marks him as leader of new guard. Don't miss this Instagram king as he ascends to his throne amongst the greats.
