Listen to Playboi Carti Pay Tribute to Hugh Hefner

Playboi honors the original Playboy.

Just days after Hugh Hefner’s death, Playboi Carti is paying tribute to the publishing icon who seemingly inspired his stage name.

The “Magnolia” rapper unleashed a not-safe-for-work video that features clips from Playboy‘s past, including videos and still photography. Intermixed with these vintage relics, including X-rated material, are photos of Carti.

So far, only the self-produced instrumental has been released. The song features a conversation between Playboi and a woman, but it ends right before a verse or a chorus is able to kick in.

“tribute to the original playboy – art dealer x Hugh Hefner,” wrote Carti, who recently teased a joint mixtape with Lil Uzi Vert.

Young Carti isn’t the only rapper to honor Hefner following his passing. Lil’ Kim also remembered the late legend with a touching post, in which she revealed that she once rejected a 7-figure offer to pose for Playboy.
