Though Taylor Gang‘s own Tuki Carter might have a reputation for woozy stoner raps, he can turn-up with the best of the best. Recruiting legendary party fiend Juicy J for a feverish and wild visual, Tuki Carter shares “Jerry Maguire,” premiered by XXL. Smoking and drinking in a packed club with fine ladies on their arms, Tuki and Juicy J “sip this lean like it’s punch” and get some money like it’s the first of the month in the hedonistic clip. With audio premiered last week by Karen Civil, who called the track “menacing trap-style club music,” “Jerry Maguire” is the penultimate track on Flowers & Planes, Tuki Carter’s upcoming debut album. Enjoy this video stream below after the jump.
A unique figure in the world of Hip-Hop, Tuki combines his passions for music, marijuana, and visual artistry into a singular career. Tuki first made his name in the rap industry as a tattoo artist, inking superstars such as Rick Ross, who introduced him to Wiz Khalifa in 2007. Since then, Tuki and Wiz developed a mutually beneficial artistic relationship, with Tuki blazing his own trail under the Taylor Gang umbrella, making music and owning City of Ink, a chain of tattoo parlors. Recognized by magazines such as Inked and Urban Ink magazine for his unique and impressive work in tattooing, Tuki Carter placed at #9 in Complex Mag’s 2015 list of 50 Tattoo Artists You Need to Know.
Last winter, Tuki dropped The Tuki Toker Tape, a reverb-heavy effort that focuses on the “stoner” side of Tuki’s persona, featuring singles such as the Halsey-sampling “Like Me” and the trippy “Drinking Weed.” By contrast, Flowers & Planes, will have a more universal message. Explains Tuki Carter: “Anyone who appreciates art, dreams, and aspirations will vibe to [Flowers & Planes]. I don’t want to be the next big something. I want to be a staple in the world for art and music.” Boasting guitar driven lead single “Commando,” with a video premiered last month by VIBE, Flowers & Planes releases on April 28th.
