Over the weekend, Philadelphia’s own Lil’ Uzi Vert delivered their latest body of work, The Pink Tape. Receiving generally positive reviews from fans and critics, the project is expected to become the first Hip-Hop album of 2023 to debut atop the Billboard 200 chart. Despite having 26 tracks and contributions from Nicki Minaj and Don Toliver, some fans were under the impression that a deluxe edition would be released later this summer. However, the Broccoli City Festival headliner has other ideas.
“Nah, I’m gonna drop a whole ‘nother album,” Lil’ Uzi Vert said during a recent Twitch stream when asked about a deluxe edition of The Pink Tape.
A new album will mark Lil’ Uzi Vert’s third project in the last year and change. Not to be forgotten, they also appeared on Pusha T’s It’s Almost Dry, Nav’s Demons Protected By Angels and Metro Boomin’s Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse soundtrack. At the moment, there is no release date for the follow-up project. In the meantime, they’re set to co-headline the first day of this year’s Broccoli City Festival with fellow Philadelphia native Jazmine Sullivan.
