Playboi Carti announces summer US tour

Fresh off of the release of his very compelling self-titled debut mixtape, Atlanta MC Playboi Carti has announced plans to extensively tour the United States. The man born Joran Terrell Carter will begin barnstorming across the country on June 22 with a performance at Los Angeles’ Staples Center for the BET Experience music festival.

Carti’s tour will go on to include performances at venues in Seattle, Portland, San Diego, San Francisco, Phoenix, Austin, Dallas, Fort Lauderdale, Tampa, Charlotte, Washington, D.C., Montclair, Philadelphia, Boston, Long Island, Detroit, Chicago, Milwaukee, Denver and Columbus and Richmond Virginia’s The National. During his non-festival dates, Carti’s tour will feature supporting performances from hip-hop rising star Young Nudy and super producer Pierre Bourne. Tickets for the tour go sale June 3.

Carter got his start in the rap game at the age of 16 when he released a mixtape in 2012 under the name Sir Cartier. However, upon turning 17, the rhyme-spitter changed his nom de rap to the much more distinct Playboi Carti. Since then, he’s establishing himself with well-received featured appearances on releases by high-profile artists like A$AP Rocky and Lil Uzi Vert. On April 14, Carter’s Playboi Carti mixtape was released to widespread critical acclaim and the number 12 spot on Billboard’s US 200 album chart.
