Playboi Carti Confirms Long Speculated Mr. Bungle Fandom in New Music Video

Between Faith No More and Mr Bungle, nu-metal owes its entire existence to Mike Patton and his creative endeavors. His generational influence now stretches from Slipknot and Korn to Playboi Carti who was spotted weilding a vinyl copy of Mr. Bungle's The Raging Wrath of the Easter Bunny Demo in his new music video for "EvilJ0rdan."

There's definitely a non-zero chance the popular rage-rapper just thinks it's a cool design (the record is still in its original plastic wrapping) but Playboi Carti has been teasing his own turn towards a more nu-metal sound as of late, frequently performing the yet-to-be-released "Pop Out" live with an onstage guitarist. If there's a deeper connection to be made here we'll be the first to let you know.
