Video: Tuki Carter ft. Juicy J – “Jerry Maguire”
The TGOD Tattoo Entrepreneur Recruits the Memphis Veteran for the Second Track off his Flowers & Planes Album, Out April 28th
Critical Praise for Tuki Carter:
“Shades of Kendrick’s flow and Wiz’s charm, and quite a backstory–it appears the spacey ‘Yeah’ is another step towards Tuki carving out his own corner” – The FADER
“One of the most talented artists in the hip-hop industry” – HotNewHipHop
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.
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.

Tuki Carter Background:
Tuki Carter is more than just a rapper—he’s an artist. For more than a decade, the Atlanta-based visionary has lived and breathed art, embracing audio and visual mediums through his love of hip-hop and tattooing and beyond. In turn, he’s established himself as one-of-a-kind in an industry where status quo is far too familiar, touring across the country and crafting creatively forward-thinking projects while living life as an entrepreneur, running the parlor franchise City of Ink as co-owner and giving artists including Rick Ross, Usher and Young Jeezy some of his fresh designs.
