Fresh off his back to back weekend performances at Coachella, Playboi Carti sat down with The Fader in his hometown of Atlanta to talk about his forthcoming album, Whole Lotta Red, and how he recorded most of the album at his dining room table and created 50 songs.

“I could be done if I wanted to. I’m just trying to top shit. I might make the hardest song ever tomorrow.” – Playboi Carti


Carti also discussed how Atlanta inspires him to make his best music, connecting and collaborating with Solange, his desire to distance himself from people, and his time on the internet, as well as the decisions he’s made to help him become recognized as one of today’s biggest icons in the future of hip hop. 

Playboi Carti is the fourth and final cover featured in The Fader’s Summer Music issue, following Megan Thee StallionRosalía, and (Sandy) Alex G. The print issue hits stands June 25 and can be pre-ordered here.
