Playboi Carti, who had first announced the album on Instagram in August with mysterious pictures, shared another cryptic post on Twitter
Playboi Carti was supposed to drop his third studio album called ‘Narcissist’ on his birthday i.e. September 13 but then he did not. The ‘Miss the Rage’ hitmaker has already announced the ‘Narcissist’ tour that commences on October 14 and concludes on December 23, 2021. Therefore, it means the rapper might drop the album very soon.
The 25-year-old rapper, who had first announced the album on Instagram in August with mysterious pictures, shared another cryptic post on Twitter over the weekend which dropped hints about Carti joining hands with his frequent collaborator and good friend Kanye West. As soon as the cryptic post was up on the micro-blogging site, his fans thronged to Twitter wondering if West was on the album too also begging Carti to drop the album at the earliest.

Is Playboi Carti collaborating with Kanye West on ‘Narcissist’?
‘Narcissist’ will be Playboi Carti’s third studio album and is a follow-up to his 2020 critically and commercially acclaimed second full-length project called ‘Whole Lotta Red’. Carti had also invited Kanye West on the song ‘Go2DaMoon’ for the same project and the latter returned the favor when Carti hopped on West’s song ‘Junya’ from the album ‘Donda’.
Now, taking to his official Twitter account, Carti shared two cryptic photos with Kanye West. Both the rappers can be seen wearing full head masks- a trend which West started for his 10th album ‘Donda’. The pictures seem to be from ‘Narcissist’s merch collection as their style appears to be the same as photos earlier shared by Playboi Carti. As of now, neither Carti nor West have confirmed the collaboration on the project. Speaking of the album, the Atlanta native had shared a tweet how eager and impatient he was to drop his new record. While sharing a screenshot of a group chat, Carti in the text message said, “Forget about sample clearances. Drop Narcissist.”
The title ‘Narcissist’ apparently comes from Carti’s fallout with his former rapper girlfriend Iggy Azalea when the latter had dubbed him with the same title after a holiday spat. It was reported that Iggy had apparently caught Carti cheating on her which she had revealed on social media platforms. Iggy had also claimed that Carti was absent while she gave birth to their son adding that he was playing PlayStation with Lil Uzi Vert during her scheduled C-section. On the work front, Carti’s last album ‘Whole Lotta Red’ was dropped in December 2020. According to Crack Magazine, Playboi Carti had also given a hint about exploring different fields in May 2020 saying, “At a certain point, I would like to be doing other things.” He continued, “I’ll always be into music, but I just want to give out and show the world everything I’m capable of while I have that spotlight on me” concluding, “I just want to take advantage of everything and then when it’s time to lay down, it’s time to lay down.”
