If you don't want to hear some new Uzi today, then please log off. You're not needed.
After months of snippets, we now have the full studio version of Lil Uzi Vert and Playboi Carti's "Bankroll." The DP Beats x Greedy Money x Nick Newz-produced collab appeared via WSHH Wednesday alongside concept art from Emo Bear, becoming the latest track to be released from the presumably still-in-progress Uzi x Carti project. Check it up top.
We haven't heard much about the status of the Uzi x Carti tape, possibly titled 16*29. Way back in September, Carti shared a photo of the Damned members Captain Sensible and Dave Vanian on Snapchat with the caption "Carti Uzi Tape * Uzi Carti Tape * 16.29."
The (possible) title is a combined reference to Uzi's hometown of Philadelphia and Carti's hometown of Atlanta. In December, Uzi and Carti's "Squad" surfaced after previously being teased by Uzi under the title "Firearm."
Both Uzi and Carti have remained mum on the project in the months since first teasing it on social media. However, when discussing their respective wave of hip-hop with i-D recently, Carti did outline the ethos at the heart of all his work. "You gotta give it to [the fans] raw, because they're gonna like you for who you are," he said. "I feel like for young rappers, just keep going and fuck everybody. The world is ours man, so take advantage of what you're doing, save your money, stay fly, wear condoms, and keep living life, you feel me?"
