Illusive Presents and Frontier Touring are delighted to welcome Playboi Carti to Australia for the very first time in March. Young Carti will be stopping by Melbourne, Perth, Brisbane, Sydney and Auckland to deliver his chart busting tracks from his self-titled 2017 debut mixtape, out now worldwide on AWGE/Interscope Records.

Released on April 14, Playboi Carti debuted at #12 on the Billboard 200 charts. The mixtape features Carti’s two hit singles ‘Magnolia’ and ‘wokeuplikethis*’ both of which embody the 22-year-old rapper’s experimental but hook-heavy sound. The songs spent the summer simultaneously climbing the Billboard 100 chart and Spotify’s RapCaviar playlist, as Carti performed at festivals across North America and Europe, solidifying his place at the forefront of today’s breakout hip-hop artists.

Playboi Carti’s breakout hit ‘Broke Boi’ arrived in spring 2015, around the same time that Playboi Carti made his debut at SXSW and ended up crossing paths with A$AP Rocky. Shortly afterwards, Playboi Carti relocated to the Bronx to begin work on his debut project.

No stranger to performing live, Carti recently sold out his debut headlining tour, including shows in New York, LA, Atlanta and London. Vevo dropped into the first of two sold out nights in London to capture him perform ‘Magonolia’ and ‘wokeuplikethis*’ to a crowd that knew every single word.
