On top of going on tour, Carti recently appeared on Travis Scott’s unreleased track “Houdini.” Late last month, Carti revealed during his sit down with Power 106 that he and Frank Ocean have recorded five songs together. He is not the only artist to have publicly disclosed his asthma diagnosis. Rappers like Tyler, the Creator, Vince Staples and Skepta have shared about their struggle with the chronic lung disease as well.
