Hey guys for Complex News, I’m Natasha Martinez.
///// Playboi Carti had a concerning revelation for his followers Tuesday morning. The rapper,
who is currently in the middle of his ‘Die Lit’ tour, shared that he’s been diagnosed
with a serious case of Asthma. Carti took to Twitter to explain what he’s
going through, as well as offered support for his fans that are suffering through the
same thing. Carti tweeted, * breathing is so difficult for meh @ da moment!
Literally scared to fall asleep on my back . i have da worst case of asthma. N never
knew til today . to all my fans who suffer from asthma! I’m with u n #we as a whole
must stay strong * Other artists who have been open about having
the disease include Tyler the Creator and Vince Staples. So far it seems Carti’s diagnosis
won’t have an immediate impact on his tour, which is set to hit the Royal Oak Music Theater
in Michigan tonight. Carti has been doing his PR rounds revealing
that he has a ton of music recorded with Lil Uzi Vert and Frank Ocean. For the latter,
Carti swung by LA’s The Cruz Show to say that he and Frank were in the studio last month. Frank Ocean, he’s the GOAT. Last time I worked
with him was in New York about a month ago. We did like five songs. You know, it’s Frank
so he move how he moves. [The songs are] with [Frank]. He told Genius back in 2017 that having studio
time with Frank saying that he showed him a new type of style. As for Lil Uzi Vert,
Carti says that they have over 100 songs recorded together. We been recording since like 2015. We know
what we’re capable of. When those tracks will hit fans ears is a
mystery for now. The two have been teasing a collab since 2017. //// That’s your news
