Everything We Saw at the Playboi Carti Show at Northern Kentucky's BB&T Arena

The internet made Playboi Carti. But, unlike most contemporary rappers, he isn’t interested in revealing his every move on social media. The 25-year-old Atlanta native prefers an enigmatic approach, mixing various, sometimes disparate influences — 1970s Punk Rock, Prince, vampire movies, Lil Wayne, Givenchy — to cultivate an evolving persona that is as much about feel and atmosphere as it is about the actual beats and vocalizations that emerge from his increasingly fascinating musical output.

Carti stopped by Cincinnati at Northern Kentucky's BB&T Arena on his King Vamp Tour last week. Check out everything we saw.
