The power of SoundCloud has propelled the careers of many artists including Lil Uzi Vert and Playboi Carti, who are very good friends. It’s straight heat in the booth whenever they link up, and Carti may have teased that they have a collaboration up their sleeves.
Carti took to Snapchat to post a picture of two members from the London rock band The Damned. The accompanied caption read, “Carti Uzi Tape * Uzi Carti Tape * 16.29.” The four digits at the end aren’t a date, but they represent the artists respective blocks in their neighborhoods. Uzi is from 1600 block of his hometown Philly while Carti reps 2900 blocks in Atlanta.
Although nothing is official, many fans began speculating and are now awaiting a joint mixtape from Uzi and Carti. Uzi is fresh off the release of his debut album Luv is Rage 2 which debuted at No. 1 and recently teased Lil Uzi Vert vs The World 2. Carti released his debut self-titled album earlier this year, so he’s due for some new music.
