Playboi Carti to headline free livestream concert on New Year’s Eve

Fresh off the release his Whole Lotta Red album, Playboi Carti is gearing up to close out 2020 with a free livestream concert on New Year’s Eve. 

The Atlanta rapper will headline Cyberwurld, an online virtual reality show presented by Thunder Studios via Twitch, beginning at 8 p.m. PT. The virtual event will also feature performances from “Whole Lotta Choppas” rapper Sada Baby, fellow Atlanta rappers BktherulaKen Car$on and more, including Popp Hunna, the North Philadelphia artist behind the viral Tok Tok hit, “Adderall.”

On Christmas Day, Carti presented fans with his long-awaited album, Whole Lotta Red, boasting appearances by Future and Kanye West, who also executive produced the project. The album’s cover art pays homage to Slash magazine, which covered the underground punk-rock scene in the 1970s. In addition, Carti also shared the music video for “M3tamorphosis” featuring Kid Cudi.

That same day, Carti started trending all over social media after Iggy Azalea slammed the 24-year-old for cheating during their relationship and missing their son Onyx‘s first Christmas.

After a series of viral tweets and Carti sharing a video of himself with the couple’s seven-month old son in the studio, Iggy admitted her intentions were “for the best” interest of their son. 

“I’ve spoken to my [baby daddy] and as [messed up] as this [has] been… it was for the best because now [it’s all] aired out & gonna change for the better with my son,” Iggy tweeted Sunday. “That’s all I wanted.”
