Lil Uzi Vert did not use drugs when he made The Pink Tape, his upcoming album. On Tuesday, March 14, TMZ met up with Uzi and his crew in Beverly Hills, California.
They asked the Philadelphia rapper about Don Cannon’s recent statement that Uzi wrote almost 700 songs for his new album while he was still getting sober. “At first, it wasn’t easy. But then after probably after a month, I got used to it,” Lil Uzi Vert said of creating his new album sober.
“I thought that since I wasn’t taking drugs anymore, my creative process wouldn’t be the same. It was the same. Even better. I could think more clearly, and my words didn’t run together as much, which is kind of cool. Everything made sense.
I didn’t just make random music. How can I say? I did not play out of time. This time, I did make a song with topics.” Lil Uzi Vert said that he would tell all of his friends to avoid drugs.
“It’s the best thing to do,” said the rapper from “Just Want to Rock.” “It will make you feel different. And you’ll look better.” In an interview on Math Hoffa’s My Expert Opinion podcast in February, Lil Uzi Vert’s label co-owner Don Cannon talked about Uzi’s skill while making his new album.

“He used to do them while high, but now he does them while sober,” said Don Cannon. “Nothing has changed, so he is still one of them. And it’s different because he sings many different kinds of songs. Could get a rock song or a real rap song, since he can rap.
Might get what he does with music. It’s fun to do that.” Lil Uzi Vert has been teasing his new album for a while now. He said yesterday that the project would be ready in a few months.
