Lil Uzi Vert is a beloved artist who is always being begged to release new music. Overall, they are gearing up to release The Pink Tape, which is likely to be massive. However, we actually have no clue whether or not it will be released in 2023. Instead, Uzi has been fairly quiet on that front. They refuse to give fans much insight into the album, even though many would do anything for just a little bit of information. At this point, all fans can really do is be patient and wait and see.

Recently, Lil Uzi Vert appeared on the cover of 032c Magazine. Overall, the cover story was exceptionally insightful. Additionally, Uzi opened up about having to go to rehab for seven months. As they explain, Desiree Perez was one of the people who encouraged them to join. Like many people who go into rehab, Uzi was extremely skeptical. However, it worked for the best as the artist is feeling very good right now.

Lil Uzi Enjoyed Rehab Stint

“I’m lucky to have people in my life who truly care about me and my well-being. Specifically, Desiree Perez, who helped me get into this program,” Uzi said. “I didn’t want to do it, but I had to — and I can say now that it was a great thing to do. I spent seven months in rehab. The first month and a half were hard, but after that, it was easy, because the people there became my family. They showed me so many different outlets and ways to cope with life. We did a lot of group talks, a lot of writing on whiteboards.I was so sure that it wasn’t going to work, but surprisingly it’s pretty effective.”

Overall, this is a pretty great endorsement of rehab. Although some people are still not so sure about its effectiveness, let Lil Uzi Vert be the one to tell you it’s good. Regardless, we are just happy to see Uzi thriving. They are living life to the fullest, and you can’t help but be extremely happy for them.
