[dropcap]A[/dropcap]SAP Rocky-protege Playboi Carti had a huge 2017 thanks to his debut single, “Magnolia” and self-titled debut album. Continuing the trend, Playboi Carti surprises fans with a brand new sophomore album intriguingly titled, Die Lit.
Known for his influential swagger and bass-driven sound, the Atlanta-native returns with 19 all-new tracks. Reflecting on his skyrocketing success (both good and bad), and reuniting with go-to hit-making producer Pi’erre Bourne (“Magnoila”), Carti collaborates with a lot of heavy hitters this time around, like Nicki Mianj, Travis Scott, Lil Uzi Vert, Young Thug, Skepta, Bryson Tiller, and many more.
Along with the star-studded collaborations, Carti showcases a lot of growth in his sound and establishes himself as a mainstay in the current era of Hip-Hop. Defeating the sophomore myth, Carti’s trendsetting popularity continues to be a must-hear among the wave of new artists.
Playboi Carti developed a cult-like following over the previous years through his selective releasing of music on Soundcloud. Through his affiliations with ASAP Rocky and ASAP Mob, Carti secured a deal with Rocky’s newly developed creative group AWGE and Interscope Records.
