He also revealed a surprising connection to Denzel Washington.
If Lil Uzi Vert wants to drop new music every single day for the foreseeable future, I would support this wholeheartedly. Luv Is Rage 2 is a triumph, and is practically begging for a relatively immediate follow-up. So why not hit us with a Playboi Carti collab project?
In a Snapchat post over the weekend, Carti appeared to confirm that something with Uzi is afoot.
The image itself shows punk icons Captain Sensible and Dave Vanian, from the decades-strong U.K. band The Damned. Carti's caption, as XXL and others have pointed out, includes digits referencing Uzi's 1600 Philly block and Carti's 2900 Atlanta block.
Shouted fuck yeahs aside, no official announcement regarding an Uzi x Carti collab tape has been made. Still, it would be downright cruel to share a post including both the word “tape” and an image of such an iconic duo only to fall short of releasing a full-blown project together. Fingers crossed as fuck.
Over the weekend, Uzi teased a sequel to his 2016 mixtape Lil Uzi Vert vs. the World. In an Instagram clip, Uzi teased a new track with the caption “Just A Vibe💨🚷 ….👨🏾🎤vs🌏2® ? 🙄.” Sadly, Marilyn Manson was not seen or heard in the clip.
Uzi's debut album, Luv Is Rage 2, made Uzi a full-fledged star of unfuckwithable stature. The album opened at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and garnered largely enthusiastic reviews from critics. If all subsequent teased projects come to pass, we'll soon be getting something with Carti, Lil Uzi Vert vs. the World 2, and a freestyle rock album that will possibly feature some input from Manson.
