1. Playboi Carti’s birthday is September 13, 1996. He grew up in Fairburn, Georgia, just outside of Atlanta. He went to the same high school as T.I. and Ciara. He was rebellious, skipped class a lot, and barely graduated. In fact, no one in his family showed up for graduation because they didn’t think he would actually be walking across the stage.
2. Before rap, Playboi Carti dreamed of making it to the NBA. He called himself a young Allen Iverson. Practice wasn’t his thing; he’d show up for games, high, and still score 30+ points. He and his coach would eventually butt heads, however, causing Carti to put down the rock and pick up the mic.
3. While playing hooky from school, Playboi Carti would write and record music, and sneak in shifts at H&M where he worked.

As a kid he would regularly shop at thrift stores—something that influences his overall style today.
