Many fans first saw the news when Ye (Kanye West) posted a teaser of Carti’s song and the release date on his Instagram account. To add to their excitement, they discovered Carti’s alleged alternative IG account @playboikitty17, followed by Ye and the singer’s primary account. 

Rap music enthusiasts are having the time of their lives, waiting for the Playboi Carti bomb to drop. 

Who is Playboi Carti? 

While Playboi Carti is relatively famous in his field, accumulating 11.8M followers on Instagram (despite having only one post) and 3.65M subscribers on YouTube, not everyone knows who he is. 

Jordan Terrell Carter, professionally known as Playboi Carti, is a prominent music personality and influential figure. His contribution to the progress of trap and rage music pushed him to the status of his fame today. 

He signed up with the record label Aweful Records in 2014 and later signed with AWGE, Asap Mob’s record label. Carti gained attention from the masses following the debut of his eponymous mixtape. The mixtape peaked on the US Billboard 200 at number 12. 

Carti debuted his studio album Die Lit in 2018 and made it third on the Billboard 200. After a two-year hiatus, he released his next studio album, Whole Lotta Red, in 2020, as mentioned above. Rolling Stone and The Washington Post listed Whole Lotta Red as one of the greatest albums of 2020. 

On December 8, 2023, Carti confirmed the release of his 2024 album through an IG Story accompanied by a snippet of what many presume is his new track with DJ Swamp Izzo. 

Aside from a flourishing solo career, Carti founded the creative agency and record label Opium in 2019. The label is heavily characterized by dark and gritty production, reminiscent of the punk-rock era of the 70s and 80s. As a result, Carti and Opium amassed a cult following.

He began rapping in 2011 under the Sir Cartier screen name, which he later changed to his current professional screen name in 2013. He kickstarted his career by uploading songs on SoundCloud. 

After meeting a producer in 2014, he joined his first underground record label. Following his decision to pursue music as a full-time career, Carti moved to New York City. He met ASAP Bari in NYC, who later introduced him to Rihanna’s current partner, ASAP Rocky
