Fresh from releasing his self-titled mixtape last month, Atlanta's Playboi Carti returns with a new track titled "We So Proud of Him."

After originally floating around the Web as a snippet, A$AP Illz unearthed the celebratory record on Tuesday. Despite only being two minutes long, Carti's jaunty delivery makes the record a smooth listen.

"You can’t move like him, you can’t do like him/ You ain’t real crew then, ooh, how you shoot with them?/ How you move with them? How you true to them?" he raps on the track. 

Carti's ascension over the past year has been met with rave reviews. After appearing on A$AP Mob's 2016 Cozy Tapes Vol. 1: Friends, his magnetic appeal instantly reeled in listeners. In April, he released his eponymous mixtape, boasting appearances from A$AP Rocky and Lil Uzi Vert. Playboi Carti sold nearly 30,000 its opening week. 

With standout tracks like "Woke Up Like This" and "Magnolia" currently living on the Billboard Hot 100, Carti is flourishing on the independent circuit. He was recently recruited by A$AP Rocky's track "Raf" and also Travis Scott's newly released "Green & Purple." Drake also brought Playboi Carti out during his performance at the Adult Swim party in New York earlier this month.
