Childhood and teenage years

Jordan Terrel Carter was born on September 13, 1996, in the town of Atlanta, Georgia, and later grew up in Fairburn. In his childhood, he was the epitome of a rebellious person and in an interview with an American magazine, he stated, “My mother couldn’t talk nonsense to me. No one could fool me.” This lifestyle got the young Playboi Carti into many unpleasant situations, and through his actions, he ran away from any type of higher education after finishing high school, at North Springs Charter High School in Sandy Springs.

Playboi Carti always wanted to stand out, to feel his inner self alive. Before he was obsessed with his music career, he was dedicated to sports. Performance was something that always jumped out at him, and the pleasure of going outside the norm and being the best kept him going. Jordan Terrell Carter wanted to be a star in the world of basketball, even targeting the National League. But with his attitude, cooperation and teamwork were problematic. This was also the reason why one day he had a fight with his trainer and never came back.


When he was young, Carti adopted the name “Sir Cartier” and began releasing his songs on the Internet. In 2012, he realized that he needed to take a step forward and signed a contract with “Awful Records”. Around this time, he adopted the stage name “Playboi Carti” and got rid of his previous work on the Internet. The stage name chosen is very similar to that of the magazine that contains adult scenes, Playboy, but this aspect is only a coincidence.

In this period he collaborated with artists in Atlanta’s underground rap scene, such as Ethereal, Lil Yachty, and ASAP Ferg.

The song “Magnolia” and “Woke up like this” wreaked havoc.

Motivated by the success of his mixtape, he went on several tours with fellow popular rappers like Dreezy and Gucci Mane. Within a year of releasing his self-titled debut mixtape, Carti was named as one of the ten in XXL’s Freshman Class of 2017.

Playboi Carti released his debut album called “Die Lit” in May 2018. It peaked at number three on the US Billboard 200 and was certified gold by the RIAA a few months later. The album featured artists such as Lil Uzi Vert, Nicki Minaj, Young Thug, and Chief Keef. The rapper announced that he was working on his sophomore album, at the end of 2018.

In the next two years, some of Playboy Carti’s new singles were leaked onto the internet and reached tens of millions of streams. Carti officially released his first new track in April 2020, with the song “@Meh”, which peaked at number 35 on the Billboard 100. The next month, Carti was featured in Drake’s song “Pain 1993”. This song debuted at number 7, and so Carti became the first top-ten on the chart.

Playboi Carti release a 24-track album called “Whole Lotta Red” in December 2020. This album debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200 and features artists like Kid Cudi, Kanye West, and Future.
