With his much anticipated new album “The Pink Tape” releasing soon, Lil Uzi Vert is opening up about the creative process of the LP. The rapper said that sobriety this time helped Lil Uzi think clearer when working on the album.
Sober Uzi Vert Vs. Not Sober Uzi Vert
The reporter asked the rapper what it was like making the new album sober compared to not being sober. “It was challenging at first, but after a month, I got used to it,” he says. Uzi continued, “I thought that my creative process wasn’t the same because I wasn’t on drugs no more, but it was even better.”
When asked why it was better, Lil Uzi Vert explained that sobriety helped him think more clearly and “instead of my words slurring, everything made sense.” The artist also noted that he had recorded over 680 songs.
The release date for “The Pink Tape” is to reveal later.
The New Track
The “Money Longer” singer recently performed at the Rolling Loud Festival in Los Angeles. During the set, Uzi previewed a new song that will also be on the upcoming album.
The song’s lyric, “I make a City Girl believe in Satan,” caused significant backlash from musicians and fans. Summer Walker spoke about the verse on her Instagram story, saying she was “genuinely curious” about the lyric. Summer also later added that is “really nothing funny or cute about” it.
Uzi then responded to the backlash by telling everyone to “just chill a little bit.” The lyric is a metaphor for Satan, which Uzi explained in an interview. “Not actually Satan, but basically, I make a girl do what I say so,” he said to TMZ.
Uzi then faced questions about JT of City Girls’ thoughts on the song. He says she was with them when making the song. She “didn’t really think too much of it” because she “knows what I really mean.”
Uzi is set to play at The Roots Picnic Festival in June alongside Ms. Lauryn Hill, Busta Rhymes, GloRilla, Eve, and many more. Passes are on sale now.
