Lil Uzi Vert dropped his new album, titled “Pink Tape,” which created quite a buzz. Interestingly, Charleston White revealed that the Philadelphia rapper gave him a nice pay check to have him sampled on one of the tracks.

In the beginning of “Suicide Doors,” you can hear the voice of the controversial YouTuber. During a Say Cheese interview, White claimed he have “never heard” an Uzi Vert song that sticks out to him, and criticized the rapper for wearing nail polish.

“My right hand to God, I ain’t never heard an Uzi Vert song that I can say, ‘That’s Uzi Vert,’” White said in the clip. “But I know he’s a sissified-looking n-gga that put fingernail polish on his muthafuckin’ nails and wear dresses. How you gon’ talk about something, n-gga?”

Despite the insulting nature of Charleston White’s comments towards Lil Uzi Vert, an unexpected twist emerged when White revealed that Uzi actually paid him a good amount of money to include the diss on his latest album.

“I’m happier then a bitch,” White said in an interview with Mix One Essentials after the host asked him how he felt about the sample. “But nah they contacted me Thursday night before he did that because they gotta get permission just like sampling a song. So they cut me a nice little check and I had an attorney negotiate the royalties on it, but I get future publishing checks for whatever. He really blessed my gang.”

Early projections for Lil Uzi Vert’s “Pink Tape” indicate that it is expected to earn between 220,000 and 250,000 equivalent album units in its first week, enough to secure a No. 1 debut on the chart. If these projections hold true, it would not only mark a significant success for Uzi but also make “Pink Tape” the first hip-hop album to top the Billboard 200 in this year.

Fans of Lil Uzi Vert can expect a pleasant surprise as the rapper recently announced that instead of releasing a deluxe version of his latest album, he will be dropping a whole new album for his fans to enjoy.

“Get this 2 number one and I will drop the album y’all really looking for,” Lil Uzi Vert wrote alongside a photo of the album’s cover on his Instagram Story on Tuesday (July 4).

Taking things a step further, Lil Uzi Vert made another move by updating his bio to add “Luv is rage 3.” This addition seems to be yet another hint at what’s in store from the Philly rapper.
