Playboi Carti Gives Update on ‘Whole Lotta Red’ Album
Asked whether the project is finished, Carti basically said that is, but he’s continuing to make new music. “I could be done if I wanted to,” he said. “I’m just trying to top shit. I might make the hardest song ever tomorrow.”
Carti revealed that he began working on the album at the end of 2018, splitting sessions between DJ Drama’s Means Street Studios and his dining room table. Around 50 songs have been recorded for the LP so far. “I like new sounds,” he said. “It’s gotta be something I never heard before. I just be rapping. Every day I discover something new about myself, and I just do it.”
In addition, he also has a project with Metro Boomin on the way. “I got a whole ‘nother tape with this n***a,” Carti said. “That’s why my head’s fucked up. This shit [LA recording sessions material] could go on my album, but if it goes on the album, then we gotta change the whole thing.”
