Playboi Carti: An Enigma (for some)
It was refreshing to see.
For years the brothas in my former WhatsApp group credited each musical misunderstanding to the truth that I used to be ten years their senior. If there was a music or an artist that got here out and I didn’t prefer it, they’d assume that it was as a result of I used to be older than them/out of contact.
This went on for eight years.
(The truth is, I been hatin’ since I used to be a youngster).
I couple years again we added some youthful people to the group, brothas in they 20s. Considered one of em, Shane, was a fan of Playboi Carti the identical manner that these dudes was a fan of Jay Z and I used to be a fan of De La, they usually gave Shane the identical sort of hell I used to present them for a few of their musical selections. To which Shane would reply, “well, you’re just older.”
It was so refreshing to see.
As a result of Playboi Carti has a big following and he’s not like the everyday artist of those occasions, he’s not a social media darling and doesn’t drop tasks just like the African driver ant drops eggs. Carti solely has a couple of tasks out.
However when he does launch music, individuals have a tough time classifying him. Personally, I simply pay attention for what is sensible to me. Like:
I had each probability to signal all of the younger niggas
However I used to be in my bag
Actually, I don’t wanna fear about these niggas
I used to be tryna signal Trippie Redd earlier than they knew about Trippie
I used to be fuckin’ with Lil Keed when he made lil’ “Blicky”
And I believed I had Pi’erre, however the label tricked me
It’s apparent that Playboi Carti has his ears to the streets…the youthful streets. As a result of there are numerous o’ self-proclaimed Rap followers that don’t know Trippie Redd, Lil Keed, Pi’erre Bourne, nor any of the artist that they collaborate with.
They don’t perceive Carti which simply exhibits me that ya must watch out about being within the age/technology bag. As a result of when issues change, they usually change usually, you’ll get caught on the market like Homer’s indignant dad yelling on the cloud.
