With his Luv is Rage 2 charting phenomenal numbers right now and already working on his next installment in his hit mixtape series vs. The World”. It also appears that Lil Uzi Vert has plans to release a joint mixtape with 2017 breakout star Playboi Carti.
News broke of a possible joint mixtape in the works through Carti’s snapchat, revealing a punk rock photo of Captain Sensible and Dave Vanian of the ’70s punk outfit The Damned that imitated both Uzi and Carti’s upbringing. The caption wrote, ““Carti Uzi Tape * Uzi Carti Tape * 16.29.”” A refrence to 1600 block in Philadelphia, where Uzi was raised, and the 2900 block in Atlanta.
The image and caption from Carti presumes that the joint tape will involve a punk rock vibe, a sound that Uzi has been fascinated with and incorporated into his massive hit-single, “XO Tour Life”.
Uzi has already collaborated on a joint mixtape early 2017 with ATL’s Gucci Mane titled, “1017 vs. The World”. Both Uzi and Carti was also featured on the new ASAP Mob hit single, “Raf”.
