Lil Uzi Vert raps, "I make a City Girl believe in Satan" in a new song he debuted at Rolling Loud this weekend.

Hip-hop’s infatuation with demonic spirits isn’t something new but it seems as though artists like Lil Uzi Vert and Playboi Carti are keeping that tradition alive. Many rappers have explored the evil forces in their music, whether it be Three 6 Mafia or Lil Nas X, who caused a storm after performing a lap dance on a Satanic figure. Some feel as though these individuals are pushing a devilish agenda, while others argue that it's merely for the purpose of entertainment. 

Artists like Lil Uzi Vert haven’t necessarily denied their alleged satan worshipping agenda. Uzi previously got into a back-and-forth with Offset about the use of the upside-down cross, which he felt was symbolic of the occult. "All y’all n***as wearing upside-down crosses, even my little partners, stop that shit," Offset said. "You look lame. All that worship the devil shit. Get with God man.” It ultimately led to a back-and-forth involving XXXTENTACION and SahBabii. However, Lil Uzi Vert has largely died down on looking like an agent for the devil for more eccentric looks, like his fit at the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards this past weekend.

Lil Uzi Vert’s Song Preview

It was a big weekend in California as Rolling Loud brought their three-day festivities to the West Coast. Throughout the weekend, fans were treated to some exciting performances from artists like Lil Wayne, Lil Baby, and Playboi Carti, though some felt as though the latter’s set was a bit too demonic. However, Lil Uzi Vert’s Sunday set had people talking, from his hairstyle for the evening, as well as the new records he previewed.

At one point, Uzi performed an unreleased cut that built fans' excitement for his next release, Pink Tape. However, one bar, in particular, caught everyone off guard. At one point, he raps, “I make a City Girl believe in Satan,” which led to rumors that his girlfriend, JT, joined the occult. Paired with the "Throw up the Roc, 'cause that's the nation," bar, Uzi took many people back with the unreleased tune. At this point, Lil Uzi Vert hasn’t expounded on the bar, nor has JT addressed the matter but we’ll keep you posted if either comment on the record. Check out the song snippet above and let us know your thoughts in the comment section below.
