Lil Uzi Vert indeed held no pauses with this EP’s creative direction. His project, “RED & WHITE,” explores different avenues of intergalactic trap and his infectious energy. The 10-track effort gives Lil Uzi Vert to show why he’s “the best rapper from Philly,” as mentioned in “Glock In My Purse.”

The themes surrounding “RED & WHITE” touch on his alluring charm, drip game, and how he “flexed up and got his check up.” Every now and then, the “Demon High” artist puts haters in their rightful place.

The rapper announced “RED & WHITE’s” arrival last week on Instagram after changing his pronouns to “they/them.”

“Red & White Ep …. Before The P!NK,” Uzi wrote in the post. “P!NK” is a highly-anticipated tape that fans have long and patiently expected.

After mentioning that “RED & WHITE” would be dropping soon, Uzi debuted several tracks on SoundCloud, including “Hittin My Shoulder,” produced by Maaly Raw, and “Flex Up.” Later, Uzi released the Sonny Digital-stamped “I Know” and “Space Cadet,” produced by Brandon Finessin, Bally, and ShaunGoBrazy.

Songs like “I KNOW” and “Hittin My Shoulder” are seemingly a blast from the past. In terms of both delivery and sound, the “Baby Pluto” hitmaker brings us back to when he was breaking into the scene. “Final Fantasy” and “Cigarette” accentuate Uzi’s ability to experiment with different sounds and cadences. Uzi even dabbles in a Jamaican accent when he spits.

“Pon di river, uh/Pon di bank, yeah (Pon di)/Pon di gun, cigarette, pon di lungs.” 

“FLEX UP,” “BELIEVE ME,” and “ISSA HIT,” to name a few, emphasizes why he can talk sh*t and still back it up.

Overall, “RED & WHITE” is a tape that can excite every walk of life. Lil Uzi’s patterns of crossing are what reels in listeners from across the globe.
