Playboi Carti was not shot and he is still alive. Although he is perfectly healthy, he became the victim of a death scam. This isn’t the first time a famous person’s name has been used in a fake death story. The same has happened to famous people like MrBeast, Rowan Atkinson and others in the past. This isn’t the first time the rapper’s name has been part of a fake death hoax.

Jordan Terrell Carter is an American rapper whose stage name is Playboi Carti. Carter was initially signed to underground label Awful Records, based in his hometown. He later signed to ASAP Mob’s AWGE label, part of Interscope Records. Carter had a small group of fans early in his career, but in 2017 he became known to a wider audience.
