Lil Uzi Vert has announced that their highly anticipated project, The Pink Tape, will be released later this month. While appearing at The Roots Picnic, they hinted at the album’s release window. During their performance, Uzi brought back their iconic purple dreadlocks hairstyle, which they had when their career first took off, making it a recognizable look. This decision thrilled fans on social media, who expressed their excitement at seeing this familiar style. One Twitter user even wrote, “Wow, Uzi is back, they’re about to release a classic,” displaying their anticipation for the upcoming album.
The Pink Tape has been a project that Uzi has been teasing since at least 2021, gradually building anticipation. However, in recent months, they have been providing more frequent updates about the album. In March, Uzi spoke to TMZ and revealed that they had been sober during the recording process. Initially, it was a challenging adjustment for them, but after about a month, they got used to it. Uzi explained that they had expected their creative process to be different without drugs, but it turned out to be even better. They found that they could think more clearly, their words were no longer slurred, and their music became more coherent. This allowed them to create songs with specific themes and avoid relying solely on improvisation or going with the flow of the beat.
