Just a few years after edging into Atlanta’s hip-hop underground, Playboi Carti delivered a self-titled mixtape that debuted at #12 on the Billboard 200. His first release for Interscope Records, Playboi Carti features “Magnolia” and “wokeuplikethis*”—two chart-busting singles that embody the 21-year-old rapper’s deeply experimental but hook-heavy sound. With both tracks climbing the Billboard 100 and appearing on Spotify’s RapCaviar playlist, Playboi Carti has fast emerged at the forefront of today’s breakout hip-hop artists.
