Carti is making some interesting moves.

Playboi Carti is one of the biggest artists in hip-hop right now. Although his latest album Whole Lotta Red was met with pushback at first, it is now seen as a triumph. This album merged punk and metal aesthetics with trap, and it led to an incredible project. Overall, this is now considered to be Carti's magnum opus. His tours have been insane since dropping the album, and now, he has an actual guitarist at his live shows. His growth as an artist has been fun to watch, although it is clear that the fans want something new.

For months, fans have been waiting on a brand-new project. While Carti has offered up some teasers at times, he has yet to actually release his next album. For many, this has come as very frustrating. After all, Carti is the king of delaying his albums and restarting them due to various leaks. However, there now appears to be some new information in regard to Carti. According to No Jumper and various sources on Twitter, Playboi Carti has been buying up all of the studio time in Manhattan Beach.

Playboi Carti In The Studio

As you can see in the Instagram post above, some people in the area are a bit frustrated. This is because they have been trying to get some studio time themselves. Although, with Carti buying up all of the available rooms, it has been hard to find a viable option. Fans are consequently claiming that Carti is, indeed, in album mode. One would have to assume that is the case based on all of the studio time he has booked. Regardless, Carti has certainly been in the studio quite a bit up to this point and still hasn't dropped anything.

While it is frustrating, Carti fans will just have to be patient at this point. That is the only thing you can really do in these situations. Artists love to perfect their craft, and Playboi Carti has proven to be a perfectionist of sorts. If he is taking this long to drop, it is probably because he wants the album to be exactly what the fans are hoping for. Let us know your hopes for Carti's next album, down below.
