Playboi Carti to release Narcissist album, according to Digital Nas

Amber Peake September 9, 2021


Last month Playboi Carti teased fans as he announced he would drop a new project on Monday, 13 September on Instagram. As the date draws closer, fans are curious to know whether Playboi Carti’s Narcissist is an album after a hint by producer Digital Nas.

What is Playboi Carti’s Narcissist?

Playboi Carti sparked the interest of fans last month as he cleared his Instagram feed to announce his latest project, Narcissist.

The rapper revealed the release date of his new project would be Monday, 13 September, his 25th birthday, as he shared a series of snaps of him wearing a full face mask.

Artist and producer Digital Nas spoke about Playboi Carti’s Narcissist project on social media earlier this week. He posted a picture alongside him to his Instagram stories and wrote: “Narcissist incoming.”

The snap was later shared by Kanye West fans who claimed it pictured the pair working on Donda at the Mercedes Benz Stadium. However, Digital Nas later confirmed the picture was more recent than West’s new album.

Digital Nas has since hinted at Narcissist being music related in a recent Instagram live, as he claimed he was “doing the whole album“.

Fans share theories on upcoming Narcissist project

While Digital Nas has suggested Narcissist might be Playboi Carti’s new album, some fans believe the project could also be a clothing line.

Following the rapper’s upcoming project announcement on Instagram last month, eagle-eyed fans noticed the post’s last picture featured a couple of sewing machines and a mannequin.

Some took to fan forum sites such as Reddit to discuss a possible clothing collection: 

Other fans believe the project may be music only and could be a single or EP rather than an album:
