    why are people saying carti is not mysterious

    Idk they trying too hard to be different.

  • Kodak Spice

    sab pls. carti is mainstream now partially because of all of the mystique

    look how lil baby went from having the best selling album of 2020 to falling off. oversaturation

    carti stayed mysterious and drummed up hype for his persona and now we need it. its like how ppl want a challenge when pursuing a significant other

  • Raury

  • Bryson is one where it fell on its face, dude didn't fully show his face until recently on interviews and photo ops, but he's not suited for the life and has said that so I get it

    not really mysterious but i feel 6lack dimmed his own career by being too nonchalant - while simultaneously being a lowkey d***head and getting extra mad about people pronouncing his name wrong (which he should of ran with cuz 6-lack is way better than just "black" spelled as 6lack, six-lack is highkey wavy bro sabotaged himself & its what most people called him anyways)

    Yeah black is so OK, 6lack is what it it reads like, but was he a d***head tho, feel like he's cool but too mysterious

    his entire public persona and how he presents himself and the music. he rarely does interviews (hasnt done a video interview since 2020) he doesnt speak much publicly

    how do ppl not get this lol

    u can look at "mysterious" as a label describing someone's position on two spectrums. first, u got how visible the artist's personal life is (how often do they do interviews? how often do they post clips of their life on socials? etc.). second, u got how the artist's music is pushed. is it getting radio spots? is it getting playlisted? are there ads for it?

    ppl assume it has to do with popularity which is dumb. Frank Ocean is the textbook mysterious artist and he's one of the most famous artists of the 2010s. Carti might be massively popular and mainstream, but his personal life is still largely hidden from the public eye, and his music isn't even on streaming. Definitely a mysterious guy.

    yeah nothing more annoying than an artist making a questionable choice and then placing all the blame on the audience when people keep misunderstanding.

  • Didn't ruin his career but Donald definitely fumbled 3.15.20 imo

    i think the origin of this s*** was khaled ranting, right? he meant music that's primarily consumed alone or in small group settings, not outside, on the radio, or at big events.

    which will happen if u don't put ur music on streaming and don't pay for radio play, no matter how popular you are.

    Oh it worked out really well for spark master tape, and it all actually was mysterious. Was a crazy draw, more mysterious than Travis Scott in those early days around dbr even

    He fell off with his team 100% due to sample laws changing, not due to being mysterious imo. His first actual album actually had some hype in some circles but it sucked cause no crazy samples were on it

    Never really recovered but his recent output is phenomenal again since December I think. His tape last year flopped due to being too mysterious though, only on SoundCloud after it got removed from am/Spotify
