Playboi Carti Stars in Foot Locker’s New Nike Air Commercial
Playboi Carti has teamed up with Foot Locker to star in the sneaker store's new commercial for the Nike Discover Your Air campaign.
The new ad finds Carti in the recording booth before he unearths a Foot Locker time capsule that is full of '90s Nike swag including a bucket hat, slap bracelet, pager and the latest NIKE Frequency AM Plus. After opening the iconic orange Nike shoe box, Carti is transported to a '90s world full of old video games, cassette tapes and dial-up modems.
The collection of Nike sneakers, which features the NIKE Frequency AM Plus, AM 97 and AM 95, will release on Friday (Sept. 14) and will be available across all Foot Locker stores including, Foot Locker, Footaction and Champs Sports, as well as Eastbay.com.
The "R.I.P." rapper recently wrapped up his Die Lit summer tour in August. The 19-date trek saw Carti make stops in San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Diego, Chicago, Pittsburgh, Boston, New York and more.
Since releasing his debut album Die Lit in May, Carti hasn't put out any new music, although the rapper does claim to have 100 songs recorded with Lil Uzi Vert. "We’ve been recording since like 2015, so we know what we got to do. We know what we're capable of. We just gotta do what we gotta do," Carti said during a July interview.
