It’s been a shade over a year since Playboi Carti dropped his debut album, Die Lit, back in May 2018. Since then, he has maintained his position near the top of the rap game, touring relentlessly and moonlighting for everyone from Tyler, the Creator (“Earfquake”) to Solange (“Almeda”). But the Atlanta rapper has also continued to make headlines for his solo music yet to come. Anticipation could not be higher for Whole Lotta Red, Carti’s second studio album. He has been teasing the Die Lit follow-up since last August, but it finally looks like we’re getting closer to its imminent release. On July 28, while performing at The Eagle’s Ballroom in Milwaukee, Carti announced that he’s “trying” to drop his next project “in the next 60 days.”
As the expected release date nears, here’s everything we know about Playboi Carti’s new album, Whole Lotta Red.
