Uzi has been teasing the follow-up to his 2020 albums Lil Uzi Vert vs. The World 2 and Eternal Atake since last year. In August, he claimed that the project was mostly finished and he was in the mixing process. 

“Well, it’s going through mixing process right now because last time I dropped an album, it did really well,” he said at the reopening and 18th-anniversary celebration of JAY-Z‘s 40/40 Club. “It was actually my highest-selling album, but it was a little bit experimental on the mixing part, not the actual music, so this time, I went experimental with the music and traditional on the mixing.”

Uzi also said that The Pink Tape would release before Halloween of that year, but the holiday came and went with no Uzi album. 

Over the last year, he's teased working with Travis Scott, Grimes, Charlie Heat, and more.
