Lil Uzi Vert Threatens To Stop Dropping Music
Lil Uzi has turned a fan into public enemy number one. The hip-hop veteran has lit up social media to – hopefully – troll a follower about getting pushed into not wanting to put out more tunes. Uzi Vert recently went to his Twitter page to share a pic of himself getting a diamond placed onto his forehead. The pic prompted a follower to playfully suggest the diamond’s value is why Uzi has been putting out ample tunes. In turn, Vert responded and said he was done-done with the new releases.
“It’s 10 almost 11 carats,” Vert tweeted before a follower responded with, “ohhh so that’s why you dropping so much music lol”
