Speaking from the blue carpet of JAY-Z’s 40/40 Club, Lil Uzi Vert gave fans an update on the status of “The Pink Tape.”
Those keeping track have already heard a glimpse of the project, as Uzi recently performed a new song — tentatively titled “Racks Up” — during his Rolling Loud set in July. Now, Uzi has come through to deliver an update on the timetable, speaking with HipHopDX on the blue carpet of JAY-Z’s 40/40 Club 18th anniversary event.

“It’s going through the mixing process,” explains Uzi. “Last time I dropped an album, it did really well. It was actually my highest-selling album. It was a little bit experimental on the mixing part — not the music. This time, I went experimental on the music, and traditional on the mixing.”
“I’m feeling really good,” he continues. “Usually I’ll pump myself up even if I don’t feel really good, and I’ll be like oh this is it just to give myself the extra push. But this time, I think this is it.”
Though it’s not much to go off, it’s promising to see Uzi standing so confidently behind his work. It’s no secret that he was quite critical of his previous project Eternal Atake, though fans were relatively favorable toward both the original and the deluxe continuation. It’s also exciting to see Uzi embracing his more experimental instincts, and we may very well end up following the creative rapper down some interesting musical paths.
