Playboi Carti

Atlanta rapper Playboi Carti’s sound is about as now as it gets. Over the surreal trap beats of go-to producer Pi’erre Bourne, he’s hyper-repetitive and almost anti-lyrical, using giddy ad-libbing as an integral aspect of his songcraft. On his debut album, May’s Die Lit, the ASAP Mob-affiliated 21-year-old smirkingly embraces the term “mumble rap,” delivering a defining work of the hugely popular (though divisive) subgenre. With Sheck Wes and Duwap Kaine.
