When I'm seeking advice on why and how to carve out the fakes from my inner circle, I tend to heed the suggestions of people who have written objectively great songs.
Lil Uzi Vert, who is hopefully busy prepping that freestyle rock album he announced last year, hit the tweets Wednesday night to seemingly tease the imminent release of something before outlining the benefits of a fake-free friend group. "When I get sad just know something coming," Uzi wrote. "I'm sad."
Uzi then questioned the prevalence of fakeness and recommended a swift excision.
Last week, Uzi dropped off the TM88 and Southside-produced "Mood," which also boasts contributions from Supah Mario. TM88 and Uzi, of course, previously created mood-altering bliss with last year's breakout hit "XO Tour Llif3."
In one of Zane Lowe's most memorable interviews of 2017, Uzi discussed his path to success while literally trying to grab fire. Uzi also outlined his post-Luv Is Rage 2 goals, which include that aforementioned rock album I've been making a point to mention in damn near every Uzi article since.
"It's kinda hard for it to be bad," Uzi, who's planning to assemble a band of "all chicks" for the project, said. "I don't even be looking at my songs like they're good or bad." Though we've heard nothing about the album since the Lowe chat, his comments then suggest we should probably expect some Paramore and Marilyn Manson vibes to make their way onto the final product.
