Playboi Carti’s ascension in hip-hop has been something to marvel at in 2017. After watching his single “Magnolia” find a home in the top 40 of the Billboard Hot 100, Carti’s inescapable song has finally received a video treatment.
Shot in various locations of New York City, Carti lives it up a nightclub and then heads to the barbershop for a shape-up. Things get rocky when he finds himself embroiled in a contentious battle with the cops after being involved in botched drug deal. A$AP Rocky, A Boogie wit da Hoodie and Nav all make cameos throughout the video.
Last week, Carti was arrested in Los Angeles after reportedly being slapped with a domestic battery charge. He posted $20k bail and was released Friday morning.
