Playboi Carti has some good hands watching him.

After Gucci’s release from prison in 2016, Mr. Zone 6 has become a prominent mentor for many rappers. Even before entering prison, he worked with Waka Flocka Flame and Young Thug. More recently, his eye has caught more up and coming rappers like 21 Savage, Lil Yachty, Lil Uzi Vert and now Playboi Carti.

Recently, the East Atlanta Santa posted a picture on Instagram with Carti with the caption reading “I just want to be a better mentor to these talented new artists.” He also added a hashtag with #PlayboiLaflare at the end.

I just want to be a better mentor to these talented new artists #PlayboiLaflare

While Carti has been in the spotlight after his arrest after an incident with his girlfriend, Gucci could be a positive influence on him.
