Playboi Carti‘s infectious single, “Magnolia” has finally received a video.
The video, which features an appearance from ASAP Rocky, showcases Carti walking thru the streets of New York with interesting effects and add-ons turning up. During an interview with Complex, Carti explained the connection with ASAP Rocky and why he appears in the video although he’s not featured on the song.
“I met Rocky at this house party and it was crazy,” Carti recalled. “He told me he fucked with me, bro, and after he said that I was like, I gotta get out here and get my swag up. It was lit. There were a bunch of bitches everywhere. It was life. The life I wanted was in the house, right there.”
Carti who appeared on two songs from ASAP Mob’s debut album, “London Town” and “Telephone Calls” helped shape his solo material.
In the interview, the Atlanta-bred artist also discussed how much his life has changed since his big break, recalling how before he used to skip school just to make music.
“When I look back at being young in Atlanta, before this music sh*t, I just laugh,” he says. “My ma couldn’t tell me shit. Nobody could tell me shit. I wasn’t going to college, I wasn’t going to the army, I wasn’t doing none of that shit. But shit costs, and I always had to get money. I was never on my ass.”
In addition to dropping a new video, Carti has been on tour for his “Playboi Carti” tour and dropped some new merchandise. The designs which dropped last month feature anime inspired prints of the Playboi with a bevy of play girls.
