2018 keeps getting better for hip-hop fans in Australia, with Playboi Carti added to the list of artists hitting our shores this year. Young Carti is set to touch down in March for a five city tour that even stretches to New Zealand.
As far as new-gen rappers go Carti is one of the most exciting. The Atlanta-native has been making waves for a few years now but it was dropping his self-titled mixtape and hit track ‘Magnolia’ in 2017 that cemented his place in the upper echelon. Besides music Carti is best known for his fire fits. His keen sense of style has seen him catch the attention of other rap fashion icons like Kanye West and Drake. Kanye used him in his Yeezy Season 5 presentation and Drake dropped him in to an OVO lookbook. It’s really no surprise that A$AP Rocky is his mentor when it comes to both music and fashion.
There’s a lot of international buzz around Playboi Carti right now so you know this isn’t a tour to miss. Check out all the touring information below and head to the Frontier website for all ticketing information, including how to access the exclusive members pre-sale.
