Lil Uzi Vert says he’s quitting rap after his Luv Is Rage 3 album and is planning to shoot a video with Nicki Minaj.
In an interview with TMZ, which was published on Sunday (Dec. 24), Lil Uzi Vert revealed that he plans on hanging up the microphone after the release of his next music project Luv Is Rage 3. When the TMZ cameraman asked him if Luv Is Rage 3 is his last album, the Philadelphia rapper responded, “Yeah.”
When asked why it would be his last LP, Uzi responded: “I love making music, but I don’t really want to make music like that anymore.”
Uzi did not expand on what he meant by “I don’t want to make music like that anymore,” but it can be inferred that the Philly rhymer is done with making emotionally-charged songs.
However, the “Just Wanna Rock” rapper added that he’ll be focusing his time on being a fashion designer and making women’s clothes after his retirement.
During his convo with TMZ, Uzi was asked about the success of “Everybody,” his joint track with Nicki Minaj. When asked if they are going to shoot a visual for it, he confirmed, “yeah.”
The TMZ camera told Uzi that Nicki was scared to send him the song because she thought he wouldn’t like it. This confused him at first.
“I never heard a Nicki song that I didn’t like in my life,” Uzi replied.
Uzi also said that he would love to do a collaborative album with Nicki if she’s “super down with it.”
“I love her,” Uzi added.
Hopefully, a joint project between them will happen before Uzi retires.
