Tony Yayo Slams Lil Uzi Vert’s Infatuation With Satan: “I Believe In God”
Lil Uzi Vert’s recent comments about City Girls JT didn’t win over Tony Yayo. TMZ recently caught up with Yayo to discuss Uzi’s controversial lyrics from an unreleased song he debuted at Rolling Loud. Though Yayo chuckled, he made it clear that he was not down with the devil in any way. However, he didn’t necessarily condemn Lil Uzi Vert for his choice of lyrics. “I believe in God. I don’t know about that stuff,” he said with a smirk on his face. “That’s crazy,” he added.
When the interviewer asked if Tony Yayo thought Lil Uzi Vert took it too far, Yayo said, “That’s a little too crazy for me.” He explained that he’s a man of God who grew up in a church afterward when he was asked to give advice to Uzi’s girlfriend, JT. “For me, I believe in God. I’m very religious. Came up in a church so anything that got to do with Satan, I can’t rock with,” he said. However, he doesn’t necessarily think Uzi’s infatuation with the devil is confirmation he’s part of the Illuminati, which many have suspected over the years.
Lil Uzi Vert’s Lyrics
The lyrics stem from an unreleased record that’s presumably intended for Lil Uzi Vert’s forthcoming project, Pink Tape. The rapper performed the record at Rolling Loud California this week where he raps, “I made a City Girl believe in Satan.” Though JT hasn’t responded to the bars, it seems that many people have expressed their concern for her, from fans to fellow artists who she’s collaborated with in the past.
Summer Walker was among those who took issue with Uzi’s bars. The singer shared her reaction on her Instagram page where she asked whether Uzi or any other rappers with similar content have ever actually encountered a demon in their lives. “ “I be genuinely curious have these people ever seen or heard a demon before…?” she asked.“I feel like if you have [encountered a demon] you’d stop playin’,” she continued. “Really nothing funny or cute about it. May God be with y’all.” Check out Tony Yayo’s comments about Uzi above.
