After 860 days following its first announcement, Playboi Carti’s Whole Lotta Red album is finally here. The much-delayed LP hit streaming services on Friday (December 25) as an extra gift in the stocking of fans who celebrate Christmas.
With a winding road to the finish line, the loaded WLR arrived boasting 24 tracks and a runtime of over an hour. Kanye West is on board as an executive producer alongside Givenchy creative director Matt Williams.
The 24-year-old became a father for the first time earlier this year and is ready to share his creative baby with the world.
“iT bEEN 2 YEArS wTF,” he wrote in reference to 2018’s Die Lit. “wE pARTY HaRD 2 niGHT.”
Carti unveiled the bloodstained project’s artwork on Tuesday (December 22), which sees him paying homage to the defunct Slash Magazine. The Los Angeles-based punk rock zine ran from 1977 to 1980.
