Carti is focused more on the energy of his records rather than the deeper meaning. Nevertheless, the rapper delivers a debut opus indicative of his brand, where good vibes, an escape from reality and flexing can be found.


The young Atlanta rapper’s debut mixtape finds a cloudy and economical mood and stays there, but it’s Carti’s magnetic confidence that turns just enough into plenty.


Playboi Carti ... does not break new ground ... but as an exercise in the millennial id delivered in Cam’ronian laziness, it’s sure a hell of a lot of fun.

But pi'ere shows how great a producer he can be even thought it can get repetitive. Playboi cartis delivery is childish but so mind numbingly addicting it's so great to here him through this album. Overall I think this album has some problems but I think in enjoyment this ... read more
