Lil Uzi Vert gained mainstream attention after the release of his debut single, “Money Longer.” The twenty-six-year-old rapper has collaborated with some of the game’s most prominent artists, including Nicki Minaj, Kayne West, and the late Juice WRLD. It’s been a busy month so far for 26-year-old Lil Uzi Vert, who kicked things off on a rough note by injuring a fan with a phone that the rapper launched off-stage in hopes of returning to its rightful owner.
Luckily, the Eternal Atake hitmaker was able to turn things around with a trip to London in support of JT’s Wireless Festival set with Yung Miami. Not long after footage of the “Silly Watch” hitmaker filming their partner’s performance hit the internet, it was announced via Instagram that fans of LUV’s can expect a new EP, called Red & White, ahead of his long-awaited P!NK album.
Earlier today, the Philadelphia native came through with the first single from the forthcoming project, called “Space Cadet.” Hours after the song’s arrival on DSPs, the Luv Is Rage artist came through with another surprise in the form of updated pronouns.
Baby Pluto took advantage of IG’s profile feature that allows users to share their preferred pronouns with followers, selecting “they/them” as their choice, rather than the “he/him” people frequently used before. Many fans are seeing this as Uzi coming out as nonbinary, but it is unclear what his true motivation is at the moment.
Lil Uzi Vert has yet to directly address the change on his profile, and at this time it remains unclear if they will. Stay tuned to Thirsty for further updates.
