On a new track, Lil Uzi Vert talks about the controversy over his satanic lyrics about City Girls’ JT.
On Monday (March 13), TMZ met up with Lil Uzi Vert and his crew in Beverly Hills, California. The Philadelphia rapper was asked about the viral track “I Made a City Girl Believe in Satan” which he debuted at 2023 Rolling Loud California.
“Not really Satan, but basically, I make a girl do whatever I say,” Lil Uzi Vert said after confirming that the song would be on his new album The Pink Tape, which he said would be out in a couple of months.
When asked what his girlfriend JT thought of the line, Uzi said, “She didn’t give it much thought. She was there when I played the song. She knows what I’m talking about.”
The “Just Wanna Rock” rapper went on to say that he doesn’t believe in Satan and doesn’t care that some people say he worships Lucifer.
“I really don’t care that they even say that,” he said. “Since I can say anything I want in my songs. It’s the same as my right to free speech. I was raised in a very religious family. But now that I’m an adult and finally living my life, I pretty much say whatever I want.

I don’t mean to offend people, even if I do. But if they don’t like it, they have the option to shut it off… They probably just need to calm down a little.” After his Rolling Loud performance on March 5, Lil Uzi Vert was criticized for his lyrics. In an Instagram post, singer Summer Walker called out Uzi.
She wrote over a video of Uzi’s performance, “lol…I’m genuinely curious if these people have ever seen or heard a demon before.” “Or it’s just a trend because I think you’d stop playing if you had one. There’s nothing funny or cute about it. May God be with y’all.”
Tony Tayo, too, didn’t like Uzi’s lyrics.
