Lil Uzi Vert is currently basking in the success of their latest album, The Pink Tape. Although the album has gotten some polarizing reactions, it was still able to hit number one. Overall, this is the first hip-hop album of 2023 to end up at the top of the Billboard chart. This is a huge accomplishment, and we're sure artists like Travis Scott and Drake will eventually hit that mark this year. With Utopia and For All The Dogs on the way, we are certainly going to get some very successful releases.

Having said all of that, Uzi is already teasing their next project. The album in question is supposedly going to be called Barter 16. This would be a play on Young Thug's infamous album, Barter 6. Of course, there is very little to go off of in terms of this new album information. So far, Lil Uzi Vert has yet to reveal a release date. Moreover, they have played it very coy when it comes to actually discussing the project's details.
