Jordan Terrell Carter who is better known as Playboi Carti, an American rapper, record producer, songwriter, and model released his debut album “Die Lit” on May 11, 2018. It includes a total of 19 songs with featured artists such as Skepta, Travis Scott, Lil Uzi Vert, Pi’erre Bourne, Nicki Minaj, Bryson Tiller, Cheif Keef, Gunna, Red Coldhearted, and Young Nudy. This album is categorized under Hip-Hop/Rap, so within this album you will experience different elements of Hip Hop/Rap with Playboi Carti’s own interpretation of what he feels falls under that genre.
Track 8, “Poke It Out”, along with the rest of the songs in this album are heavily focused on the beat with Playboi Carti’s shortcomings as a lyricist. Specifically this song is a favorite because how song initially starts out. All of the beats the Playboi uses have a high spirit which gets your blood pumping. In addition, with having a featured artist such as Nicki Minaj is a huge plus, because if a well known Rapper such as herself is willing to collaborate with with Playboi, she must see potential in him as an artist.
In track 10, “Fell in Luv (feat. Bryson Tiller)”, by far has the best beat in this whole album altogether. Along with Nicki Minaj being a featured artist in this album, so is Bryson Tiller who is also well known in his genre of music. With having Bryson Tiller as a featured artist, it adds more depth into what the song is trying to say and how Playboi is trying to get his message across. With this song being so upbeat from beginning to end, it feels rewarding to listen to.
Playboi Carti altogether may not be the best with lyrics, but he finds a way to reel you in and genuinely enjoy his music. This album “Die Lit” is so rewarding to listen to because it just makes you want to dance or be physically active in some way. So if you are a fan of Hip Hop/Rap music and are looking for an album to get your blood pumping as you work out, this is the album for you.
