In a recent interview with XXL, Playboi Carti was asked if the term “cult following” felt like an appropriate way to describe his fan base, to which he said his fans adored him for his authenticity.

“I’m just being myself and I feel like it’s a lot of people who really want to be themselves and do a lot of different things,” Carti said. “That’s the reason why it’s a cult because everybody is not going to understand and I understand. And when they see me, especially when I was coming up, [they are] like, ‘Damn, Carti look just like me.’ A regular Atlanta n-gga, you know what I’m saying?”
