Lil Uzi Vert Coi Leray Bars Snippet Barter 16

Even though they just released a smash hit album, everyone's ready for Lil Uzi Vert to bless fans with new music once again. Moreover, if you haven't heard by now, they dedicated themselves to teasing a new project, the Barter 16 mixtape, shortly after Pink Tape dropped. With that comes a whole new slew of speculative material, including social media posts, statements, and of course, song snippets. However, a recent one shared online, with a video of Uzi dancing in the studio, might be more consequential than most other teases. In the clip in question, the Philly star recorded some bars about fellow MC Coi Leray.

"Got a skinny b***h, look just like Coi Leray," Lil Uzi Vert raps in the snippet. To keep things on the music before delving into that, the snippet sounds more like their old-school fare. No rage leanings, no classic metal covers, or any other crossovers: just ethereal, woozy, and firmly trap-influenced Baby Pluto vibes. Even though there's a lot of anticipation for Barter 16, did it have to come at the cost of lines like these about their fellow artists?

Lil Uzi Vert Name-Drops Coi Leray In New Snippet

Furthermore, this is even more notable because we've already seen this exact story play out. In fact, it was just this year that Latto name-dropped Coi Leray in a song- and Coi didn't appreciate that at all. What's more is that it was also a bar about her body type, and though they made up, the Boston native went on to speak out against this kind of writing. At the end of the day, she wants some friendly competition, but not one that throws people's names in the mix in such a casual and objectifying way.

"It’s not a sensitive conversation,” Coi Leray remarked to Ebro on Apple Music 1's Rap Life Radio. “I feel like it wasn’t more about the body, it was more of mentioning my name. I’m about positivity. For real. And I wasn’t sure where it was coming from. And not only that, I feel like the problem with our community today is we be so quick to try to change things but we don’t do nothing to actually change anything." Regardless, for more news and the latest updates on Lil Uzi Vert and Coi Leray, stick around on HNHH.
