Tuki Carter Drops His New Video “Make A Way” and Displays His Tattoo Skills In His Latest Visual [Watch Now]
Tuki Carter carves an unusual path through the music industry, combining his twin passions for rapping and tattoo artistry into a unique, compelling lifestyle. Providing a glimpse behind the scenes, Tuki tattoos a beautiful woman amidst a haze of smoke in the new video for “Make a Way.”
Filmed in stylish black and white, “Make A Way” depicts a typical evening in the life of the Taylor Gang artist, packed with rapping, smoking blunts, and inking artful tattoos. “Make A Way” is a departure from Tuki’s normal diet of club bangers and stoner’s anthems, revealing Tuki’s key philosophy towards balancing his two careers and his most important role as a father. “Make A Way” is the latest video from Tuki’s debut album Flowers & Planes, which he released at the end of April.
Speaking about his newly-released album, Tuki Carter explains, “Flowers & Planes is a lifestyle that includes music, tattooing, art, and just being great at what you do no matter the obstacles set in the way. It’s my first studio album and I’m a lil’ nervous, but the other part of the flowers and planes movement, which is weed, helps me with it all. Get it? Flowers [weed] and planes [paper]. I’m ready for the world to see what’s been in my head for the past few years and some change—including art and other things I’m about lifestyle-wise. Hella positivity.”
Featuring appearances from Wiz Khalifa, Juicy J, Go Dreamer, Chevy Woods, Rome Fortune, and others, Flowers and Planes boasts a diverse array of highlights, including the vicious, electric guitar-driven “Commando,” the vocoder-laden opener “To The Max,” the slinky, bass-heavy “Brewster’s Millions,” and the party-starting Taylor Gang posse cut of the title track.
In related news, as part of W Hotels’ upcoming tattoo artist residency at their NYC hotels, Tuki Carter is hosting a week-long residency at the Times Square location where he will tattoo guests and produce a pop-up shop showcasing his art, skateboard decks, glass-etched ashtrays, and more. The official launch party will be on Wednesday, May 31.
