Atlanta, Georgia has yet another talented artist on the rise...PLAYBOI CARTI, formerly known as Sir Cartier. He released his first mixtape "Young Misfit" on TFZ/Awful Records back in 2012 with no success. It didn't even make a dent on the charts.
Passionate about his music and refusing to give up, he continued to write and record music. He even changed his name to PLAYBOI CARTI. Three years later his perseverance would pay off. In 2015 he gained fame with the release of his non-album single "Broke Boi" and began collaborating with top acts like Lil' Uzi Vert and ASAP Rocky. This led to his appearance on the ASAP Mob's debut album, "Cozy Tapes Vol.1: Friends".
CARTI's association with the two musicians/models would give him the opportunity to add another skill to his resume. He was invited to swag the runways with Lil' Uzi and ASAP in VFiles and Raf Simons fashion events. CARTI even walked in Kanye West's "Yeezy Season 5" fashion show!
Things were moving in a great direction. He appeared on over 20 tracks as a feature with artists such as Quavo & OffSet from Migos, Gucci Mane, Travis Scott, Joey Fatts, 21 Savage and Kodak Black. In 2016 he was signed to AWGE/Interscope Records and began working on a new mixtape. His eponymous sophomore effort, "PLAYBOI CARTI", not only dented the charts, it debuted at number 12 on the US BillBoard 200! Fifteen tracks of heat including collabos with Lil' Uzi Vert, Leven Kali.
His fans describe his music as 'the soundtrack to a mindless good time'. And a good time is definitely had by ALL whenever his popular single, "Magnolia" (produced by Pi'erre Bourne) is played! It is CARTI's biggest hit to date, peaking at number 29 on the US BillBoard Hot 100. XXL Magazine named PLAYBOI CARTI one of the ten in their "2017 Freshman Class", a huge honor for an upcoming artist. He is currently touring the states with Pi'erre Bourne and Young Nudy.
