Many details about who his parents really are and whether or not he has siblings have not been made public either by Carti or those who knew them. To add some imaginations and paint a better picture of what it was like for him growing up, his family didn’t have money for frivolities other than the essentials and Carti who is now a fashion model revealed that he didn’t have many clothes to wear back then.
Sir Cartier was the stage name he took at a very age when he started off his career as a young rapper. He had his first mixtape Young misfit released on 12th November 2012 when he was just 16. By the time he clocked 17, Sir Cartier decided to go by the stage name we now know him as – Playboi Catrti.
Playboi Carti gained huge popularity and followership on social media following his release of the song Broke Boi and Fetti in 2015 which featured Da$h and Maxo Kream.

Playboi Carti’s Girlfriend, Is he Gay?
Playboi Carti’s sexuality has been one trailed by controversies. Fueling this controversy was a revelation made by his girlfriend that he had a thing for someone of similar gender or rather a guy who had done gender reconstruction. Before we delve into that part of his life, let’s discuss his relationship with girls.
Playboi Carti started dating Alexis Sky from early 2017 and the two were quite secretive about their affair with each other. However, things were going wrong between the two and the public didn’t know anything about it till their public palaver at the Los Angeles International Airport terminal which saw Playboi Carti drag Alexis Sky by her hair and force her out of the terminal.
As expected, he was arrested by the authorities’ present and local police who took him into custody for domestic battery of his girlfriend which he was guilty of with evidence. He was set free on bail for $20, 000 the next day. This happened in July 2017. However, in August 2017, it was announced that he would not face domestic abuse charges.
A few weeks later, he found love in American model; TV personality and entrepreneur Blac Chyna and began dating her in October 2017. The two have been together ever since.
Before Blac Chyna and after Alexis Sky Playboi was associated Ruby Rose, a young model. It was Rose who accused him of cheating on her with a man around the time he began dating Blac Chyna. Playboi Carti has since then not responded to or denied the claim. He seems to be more committed to making his relationship with Chyna work.
