In New York I Milly Rock
Magnolia was one of the hottest songs of 2017, and for good reason. You know the catchy song that goes “In new York I milly rock (rock), hide it in my sock”? Yeah that’s Playboi Carti if you didn’t know. He dropped his debut album last year and it was one of the most talked about.
But just where did Playboi Carti come from? Well, Playboi was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia. He’s 21 years old which would mean he was born in 1996. A lot of people are unaware of Playboi Carti’s music before his debut album. He first started rapping in 2012 under the name Sir Cartier. He would actually skip high school classes often to work on his music and to work at H&M to get money to work in the studio. He was dedicated to his dream and it payed off in due time. He signed to Father’s label, Awful Records. Carti started gaining real traction and recognition in 2015 with the release of songs like “Broke Boi” and “Fetti”. I actually remember listening to Playboi Carti all the way back in 2015. I listened to him up until the summer when I visited NY. To my surprise my older cousin knew about him too. I was surprised because I knew he was a underground rapper that most didn’t know about. Carti’s known for being one of the rappers on the “rockstar” wave, among others like Lil’ Uzi and Lil’ Skies. He’s a dope rapper but he has a lot of good music that should be listened to outside of his album. I’d recommend songs like, “#PRAY #4 #ME”, “Smash”, “By Myself”, “Talk”, and “Fetti”.
