Playboi Carti, known for his distinct artistic approach, recently shed light on the unconventional creative process behind his upcoming album. In a recent interview with Numéro Berlin, the 27-year-old artist discussed his evolution as an artist and his unique perspective on the creative process.
When asked about his subject matter and lyricism, Carti expressed, “I feel like my mind is just so broad, and I’m really onto the next thing so fast,” he responded. “When you think too hard about certain things, it stops you from being creative. Like, it just alters certain shit. So I really try to stay out my head, I try to stay out my phone, and I just try to lock in. I’m in my surroundings.”
Carti then revealed a fascinating facet of his recording journey, stating, “I’ve been recording in Paris, I love Paris. Amazing. I was recording, in a cave, for like three months, and all the music that came out of that is just chaotic and crazy. Then, I’m in a glass house somewhere in the hills, and the music there is just very good to the ears. And then, I’m in Atlanta, and the tensions are just high, and the music is biting. So, it’s the little things like that that keep me going because I’m just trying to talk to myself.”
Playboi Carti’s artistic process is a testament to his unique approach and willingness to explore different environments to create a diverse and dynamic sound for his upcoming album.
