Playboi Carti’s “Antagonist” tour cover

Rapper Playboi Carti, also known as Jordan Carter, is a well-known artist, with popular titles such as “Magnolia” and “Sky.” Being well-respected in the music scene, it’s no wonder tickets for the Antagonist tour sold fast. The tour’s Portland stop, which would have featured Ken Carson, Destroy Lonely, and Homixide Gang, was set for September 13th, 2023, and has now been moved to February 29th, 2024.

The Antagonist tour, which will headline Playboi Carti and his most recent album Whole Lotta Red (2020). Due to the fact that he hasn’t dropped new music, he has been playing this album at all of his concerts for the past three years. Destroy Lonely will be performing his most recent album, If Looks Could Kill, dropped May 5th of 2023, and Homixide Gang will be playing their album Snot or Not, released April 27th of 2023. Ken Carson has been teasing a new album but as of yet, has not dropped it. Hopefully, it will be released before the tour starts up next year so that fans can enjoy new music, but Ken Carson might be taking after Playboi Carti.

As every Carti fan knows, he has a horrific lying streak. A Reddit thread called “Playboi Carti Lying: A Brief History, Vol. 1” on r/playboicarti posted by user @nolimitswervooo, highlighted these lies. From lying about the Whole Lotta Red album drop in 2019, to lying about Lebron’s number in “Beno,” to lying again about the NARCISSIST drop date, it’s no wonder that this tour has also been postponed. Every passing day, the song title “No Lie” loses more and more credibility. 

As a ticket purchaser myself, this is a huge inconvenience to me and many more people. I had already requested the day off for work, but now that it’s been postponed to 2024, I’ll have to rearrange my plans, which will be the same case with many other fans. You might say, “Why don’t you refund your ticket?” and to be fair that is a viable option, but you have to understand that this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. This tour is the first tour ever to have all of Opium performing, which for those who don’t know, are the artists signed to Playboi Carti’s label. Previous to this, they’ve only performed solo or in pairs. Regardless of the price, this is a huge opportunity for anyone who listens to this type of music and wants to immerse themselves in the live music world.

Besides the postponement of this event, Carti will still be playing at all of the venues that were forecasted. These include major European and American cities such as Atlanta, GA, Chicago, IL, Portland, OR, and Seattle, WA. 

If you are attending the concert, be sure to wear deodorant! There’s already a stigma behind Playboi Carti fans and the Opium music label in general. Let’s do our part in making sure that everyone’s experience is the best it can possibly be by taking care of our personal hygiene. Otherwise, have fun and be sure to stay safe.
