The rapper will kick it off in Nashville, Tennessee, on October 14 and the tour will run for about two months before wrapping up in the rapper’s home city of Atlanta, Georgia, on December 23.
The announcement arrives as the first indication that NARCISSIST is a complete album, rather than just a single. Last month, Carti wiped his Instagram clean before posting a picture of himself wearing a full-face mask and Balenciaga’s seven-layer parka. The post included a cryptic caption of the project’s title and an apparent drop date of September 13, which falls on the rapper’s 25th birthday.
He then followed up a week later sporting another piece from Balenciaga, an oversized patch-adorned shirt, and the same caption, leaving some fans to speculate that the new project may actually be a new clothing line.

While fans will have to wait until mid-September for NARCISSIST to drop, those eager for new music can hear the rapper on three tracks off of Kanye West’s DONDA, “Off The Grid” and parts one and two of “Junya.”
The pre-sale for the tour begins today and tickets will go on sale to the general public tomorrow, September 2, on Playboi Carti’s official website.
