Lil Uzi Vert - Pink Tape (Pink Vinyl)

Regular price $ 45.99

Limited Edition on Pink Marbled Vinyl

Philly rapper Lil Uzi Vert was never stylistically timid, experimenting with genre boundaries as early as their 2017 emo/rap-dabbling effort Luv Is Rage 2. Even with their adventurous background, Uzi has never taken things quite to the extremes found on third studio album The Pink Tape, which flits from sinister trap bangers like the Travis Scott-assisted "Aye" to pop-friendly moments like "Endless Fashion" featuring Nicki Minaj to chugging groove metal and rap synthesis on "Suicide Doors," and even on to straight-up metalcore with help from Bring Me the Horizon on "Werewolf." Plenty of rappers have expanded their sound by bringing in unexpected elements of metal and hardcore, but few have covered System of a Down as Uzi faithfully does on "CS" (shorthand for one of their biggest songs, "Chop Suey!"). Among the more extreme metal moments, The Pink Tape also gets into frantic and bubbly electronic beats on "x2" and moody, vaporous atmospheric trap on "Patience," which is bolstered by Don Toliver's contributions. At close to an hour-and-a-half running time and more than 25 songs, The Pink Tape sounds inspired as often as it drags. Some of Uzi's experiments are fun and exploratory while others flop, and the entire album is a lot to digest in one go. There are still plenty of solid tracks regardless of what style Lil Uzi Vert is trying on, but more fastidious editing might have delivered a more enjoyable, less meandering overall listening experience.
