It was in 2015 when Playboi Carti landed on our radar with his viral hit “Broke Boi.” Since then, the Atlanta rapper has released a number of loosies in addition to landing guest appearances; however, his fans have spent the last couple of years patiently awaiting his first full-length project.
Thankfully for them, the wait is finally over.
On Thursday night, Carti officially released his self-titled debut mixtape—a project on which he purposely took his time, as he did not want to disappoint his following.
“I feel like niggas really be on my shit,” he told XXL earlier this year. “That’s why I’m picky about what I put on my SoundCloud. That’s why I’m taking time with my [first] mixtape. I'm going crazy. If you look on my tracks, bro, it shows you my progression.”
The 15-track project includes production by Southside, Pierre Bourne, and Harry Fraud, with guest appearances by ASAP Rocky (“New Choppa”), Lil Uzi Vert (“Lookin” and “wokeuplikethis”), and Leven Kali (“Flex”).
You can purchase and stream the full mixtape on iTunes and Apple Music.
