Lil Uzi Vert & Playboi Carti Working On Joint Mixtape
Lil Uzi Vert and Playboi Carti hit the studio together for an upcoming project.
With his Luv is Rage 2 charting phenomenal numbers right now and already working on his next installment “Lil Uzi Vert 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 read, “Carti Uzi Tape * Uzi Carti Tape * 16.29.”, which is a reference to the 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 were also featured on the new ASAP Mob hit single, “Raf.”
