The Playboi Carti effect is real and no matter what he does, he’ll end up everywhere. Even the places you least expect him like CNN.
Following the news Playboi Carti announced on Monday (Nov. 23) that he’d turned in his Whole Lotta Red album and sent his fans into a frenzy, the 24-year-old rapper found himself making an unlikely cameo in the form of his lyrics on the news-based television channel CNN.
During a segment discussing President Trump’s tweet detailing his continued crusade to remain president and overturn the General Services Administration (an independent agency to help manage the basic functioning of federal agencies), an image from Twitter also appeared showing that the rhymer’s “they thought I was gay” lyrics were trending in the United States. While this was likely unintentional, the lyrics were seen on the far right corner of the screen.
