Playboi Carti Was Rumored to Have Died in a Car Crash in June 2019
Playboi Carti is still very much alive. He has, however, been the subject of multiple death hoaxes in the past. This doesn’t come as a surprise given that he is now a famous and wealthy personality. His status as a celebrity exposes him to this kind of prank.
Back in June 2019, a website claimed that Playboi Carti had been killed in a car crash that occurred in the southern part of Los Angeles in the early hours of the morning. The article claimed that he had been the one behind the wheels when the accident occurred.
They also went on to claim that the rapper had been under the influence of some substances at the time that the crash occurred. The article caused a small frenzy amongst music fans, especially seeing as Playboi Carti hadn’t released new music in a long time.
Fans, however, quickly figured out that the rumors were from unreliable sites. The website described itself as a place for creating pranks and tricking your friends. People, thus, took their so-called news with a pinch of salt.
An Online News Site Also Claimed that He Was Found Dead in His Hotel Room in November 2021
Another false death rumor about Playboi Carti surfaced in November 2021 when an online prank site claimed that the rapper was found unresponsive in his hotel room.

A Satirical News Website Has Also Claimed That Playboi Carti Was Once Shot in Front of his Home
Playboi Carti has never been shot to the best of public knowledge. However, a satirical news website, known as Breaking News 247 once claimed that the rapper was shot in front of his home sometime in the past. They did not go as far as saying that Playboi Carti was dead but only stated that he was in surgery. Be that as it may. This was a false rumors and Playboi Carti has never gotten shot.
It is pertinent to note that Breaking News 247 describes itself as a satire and joke that shouldn’t be taken too seriously.

The site has previously claimed that the former American president, Donald Trump, is dead which is false. They have also claimed that famous social media beauty influencer, Jeffree Star, and the Ohio-born rapper, Trippie Redd, are dead, all of which are false.
While Playboi Carti has never been shot at, his former girlfriend, Rubi Rose, claimed that he once shot at her in the course of their relationship. Rose, a rapper, and model stated that when she was dating Carti, he often came over to her house in Pittsburgh and would shoot his guns off her balcony for fun.
On one occasion, they had a heated argument and he shot in her vicinity. Rose, however, clarified that he didn’t do it with the intention to hurt her. This may have also informed her decision not to report to the authorities.
