Lil Uzi has been teasing the mixtape for almost two years
Lil Uzi Vert seemingly confirms that his fifth studio mixtape, The Pink Tape, will no longer be released exclusively on SoundCloud. On late Saturday (July 30), the Philly native shared on Twitter that the forthcoming tape was supposed to be a free SoundCloud project dedicated to his fans.
“It was a free SoundCloud tape for my fans …. When I drop Pink Tape you will see 😝💘,” he tweeted.
On July 22, Uzi released his third EP, Red & White, as a supposed pre-taste for The Pink Tape. The EP marked Uzi’s first solo project since 2020’s Eternal Atake.
In October 2021, Uzi announced at a friend’s wedding in Cambodia that the project would drop on Halloween, but later took back the claims a week before the holiday.
“No, it’s not [dropping next week],” the 26-year old rapper said while interracting with fans in the streets at the time. “Then it drop next week, and then it sounds like shit, and I gotta hear from like 100,000 people on the Internet, ‘This sucks!’ So you gotta let me take my time… I’m taking my time so it won’t suck.”
