Watch Playboi Carti’s New Video for “Wokeuplikethis*” Starring Lil Uzi Vert
Directed by JMP, the visual finds Carti in a variety of settings, from getting his hair cut to a prison yard where dudes are throwing hands. Soon enough, Uzi pops up for his guest verse, toting an Uzi as he spits his rhymes.
The song is one of many highlights from Carti's self-titled debut project, along with "Magnolia," which the Atlanta rapper dropped the video for a couple weeks back. Both tracks are produced by Pierre Bourne, and if you missed it, we talked to the rising producer about how he got his start, what it's like working with Carti and much more.
And did you notice Carti get arrested at the end of the "Magnolia" video? Because for "wokeuplikethis*" he's in jail. Nice continuity on his team's part.
