Playboi Carti is now a major label artist according to one of his biggest mentors, A$AP Rocky.
Over the past couple of years Playboi Carti has been gaining buzz, first starting off in the underground alongside Father and Awful Records and then making his way into a bigger audience alongside Lil Uzi Vert & Lil Yachty. However, unlike the aforementioned artists, Playboi Carti has yet to release a project and until today, it was unknown if he was even signed.
Obviously, these things can be done privately and it can months before we find out an artist has gone major, but A$AP Rocky was so proud of Carti that he made the deal public during a show other night: “Listen, this n*gga Playboi Carti, man. It’s a good time for this n*gga,” said Rocky, as Carti stood beside him. “Just got signed to Interscope and shit. He ’bout to fuck shit up.”
It is rumored Playboi Carti will be dropping his first mixtape on his birthday, Sept. 13th. Nevertheless, if that doesn’t happen, we are sure we’ll get a project before the end of the year. Interscope, we hope, will push for a 2016 debut.
