Play Boi Carti to perform Saturday, August 5


Get ready to turn out for PlayBoi Carti coming to CDEC on Saturday August 5th.

While lots of casual hip-hop followers are just now becoming aware of “Cash Carti” in the last few months due to his smash-hit “Magnolia”, the 21-year old Atlanta rapper has been quietly making moves in the industry for over two years now. Originally backed by social media presence, fashion influencer, and designer Ian Connor, Playboi Carti dropped “Broke Boi” on his Soundcloud back in 2015 and with the help of Connor’s promotion to his hundreds of thousands of followers, this was Carti’s first taste of viral success. Now PlayBoi Carti is rising in the world as one of next big hip-hop artist as one of ten XXL freshman class for 2017.

Thanks to the success of “Broke Boi”, jiggy singles that followed like “Fetty” and “The Omen”, and working with the affiliates of Awful Records (who were crazy hot in 2014-2015), Carti started popping up on big industry name’s radars. Later on in 2015, he went on to sign to A$AP Rocky’s label AWGE, and eventually Interscope, and model in Kanye West’s Yeezy Season 4 zine (he even ended up being a model in the live show for Season 5).

His debut has garnered the praise from the likes of Tyler, the Creator and A$AP Rocky, but maybe the most surprising and easily the most impressive was the love he received by none other than Jigga himself! On Twitter, prior to the release of his new album 4:44, Jay-Z was name dropping all the artists that he credited with inspiring some of the work on the project and in one of the tweets Jay throws in, “Carti (Magnolia incredible)”. If even the MC that the old-heads stan like no other is on Playboi’s side, there is no doubt that him and his music is here to stay.

See him now at Cone Denim Entertainment Center on Saturday, August 5. Tickets are on sale now.
