Lil Uzi Vert was expected to turn 27 on July 31. A few days before his birthday, though, Uzi took to Twitter to say he is actually turning 26.

Three days ahead of his birthday, Lil Uzi Vert said that he might not be the age he thought he was.

Uzi, who was expected to turn 27 this Saturday (July 31), took to Twitter on Wednesday to share with fans that he’s actually going to celebrate his 26th year all over again.

“Wait wtf I’m turning 26??? My mom found my birth certificate,” Uzi tweeted. “Damn bro so you was 18 but really 17,” asked one fan. “Yes WTFFF!!!” responded Uzi.

In other words, Uzi has thought that he was a year older than he actually was for his entire life. Of course, this would then mean that Uzi dropped his fourth mixtape, 2016’s The Perfect LUV Tape, on his 21st birthday instead of his 22nd. What a way that would’ve been to celebrate a milestone birthday.

It would also mean that, in July 2019, thinking it was in fact his 25th birthday, he actually celebrated what would’ve been his 24th birthday in extravagant style, dropping $1.7 million on Floyd Mayweather’s former Bugatti.

Even more, Lil Uzi’s apparent birth certificate discovery means that he still has another year to go until he finally reaches the “27 club,” which he’s addressed previously.
