Biography Playboi Carti

Playboi Carti managed to conquer the fans all over the world with hard and ironic songs. The American rebel rapper reveals the current problems of society in his compositions. Already at the beginning of his career, the performer found his recognizable style, which music critics called childish for the high frequencies and fuzzy "muttering" pronunciation.

Childhood and youth

The artist was born on September 13, 1995, in Atlanta, Georgia. The singer's real name is Jordan Terrell Carter. The teenager attended North Springs Charter High School in Sandy Springs irregularly, preferring basketball and music. At that time, he dreamed of making a career in the NBA, the idols for the young man were Michael Jordan, Chris Paul, Deron Williams, and others.

However, bad habits did not allow the rapper to make his dream of sports come true. Since the family did not have enough money, Jordan worked part-time in the store of the Swedish brand H&M. Also in an interview, the young man admitted that he dressed in second-hand and thrift stores, which formed his style.

Personal life

The rebellious character was reflected not only in music but also in the personal life of a celebrity. It is known that in 2017, the musician dated Blac Chyna, an American model. But this relationship was far from ideal. The guy was even charged with domestic violence when the singer rudely treated his girlfriend at the Los Angeles International Airport. The couple soon broke up.

In 2018, Carter fell in love with Australian singer Iggy Azalea (real name Amethyst Amelia Kelly). By age, the girl turned out to be 5 years older than the singer. The artists did not seek to make a secret out of the novel, but they did not share the details with journalists either. In June 2020, a message appeared on Kelly's Instagram account that she had given birth to a son.


The first songs appeared in the rapper's biography back in 2011. Then Jordan performed under the pseudonym, Sir Cartier. In 2012, the creative name was changed to the one that fans now know. When the guy realized that making music became a part of his life, he moved to New York. Here he met Jabari Shelton (ASAP Bari), the designer and creator of the popular hip-hop team ASAP Mob.

Early on, Rakim Athelaston Mayers greatly influenced the young artist. At that time, Carter had already signed an agreement with Awful Records, headed by rapper Father. In 2015, the musician released the singles Broke Boi and Fetti, which brought him popularity. Both songs were published on the SoundCloud online platform.

However, conflicts soon began in the singer's relationship with Father, and Jordan chose to join the AWGE label, owned by ASAP Mob. In 2016, a joint recording of Playboi Carti and the Shelton team Telephone Calls was released, which was included in the album Cozy Tapes Vol. 1: Friends

At the same time, the musician created original collaborations with other rap artists, including the guy's cousin, who performs under the pseudonym UnoTheActivist. The singer's talent and originality were appreciated by representatives of the underground scene - the American began touring with ASAP Ferg (Darold Brown Ferguson) and Lil Uzi Vert (Symir Woods).
