After dropping his first real mixtape, Playboi Carti continues to make serious waves. The “Magnolia” star just released the video for the A$AP Rocky-featuring “New Choppa.”
With so much going on, Carti has never stopped appreciating the roots of where he came from. In an interview with Ssense, Carti spoke on the old-school audio has morphed into what we hear today.
“I feel like a lot of the styles we’re doing now have already been done, Carti said. “Maybe not in the exact same way, but it has been done. I was talking to my friend Uzi about this, I feel like if we were a part of the same era as Master P and those rappers, we would really be cashing out. Money was different back then. We’re getting money now, but the money then was even bigger. From cars to gold, you look back on pictures and you see Money Mitch and all the street hustlers rocking big gold chains, snap backs. I think it’s the 90s era that my generation is so intrigued by. We just love the styles they had.”
With so much to say, there’s a reason why Carti is a signature piece of the new movement’s push for relevancy.
