Lil Uzi Vert Appreciates Ken Carson, For Producing “X2” From “Pink Tape” Album

After years of expectation, excitement, and speculation, Lil Uzi Vert’s Pink Tape delivers in spades in terms of highlights, collaborations, and production. How could it not, with 26 tracks spanning anger, plugg, current trap, and metal? Nonetheless, “x2,” one of the project’s synthiest and bounciest tunes, is certain to appeal to many old-school Uzi fans.

It’s an exciting and entertaining music to bump everywhere, with expressive vocalizations, uncomplicated flows, and wacky lyrics from the Philly MC. Furthermore, the beat incorporates the rapid and lasery synths that can be found throughout their repertoire and have become part of their signature sound.

Moreover, “x2” actually features production credits from none other than Opium signee and new school fan favorite Ken Carson. Furthermore, in a recent Instagram post showcasing their latest performance, Lil Uzi Vert thanked the rage specialist for producing the beat. “Thank you for this beat,” they wrote to Ken Carson, including a black heart and vampire emoji. What’s more is that some of Uzi’s flows and delivery actually resemble occasional collaborator Yeat’s, another important figure in the rage genre.

Of course, this also confirmed previous teases that Ken Carson participated in Pink Tape to some degree, which surely pleased fans. However, another artist that Lil Uzi Vert teased to potentially be on the album was Playboi Carti, which didn’t end up panning out. While fans expressed disappointment at that reality, not all hope vanished as Uzi’s team accidentally uploaded a Carti collab to YouTube upon Pink Tape‘s release instead of the Don Toliver-assisted “Patience.” Many hope that this suggests that a collaboration between the “wokeuplikethis*” MCs isn’t far away.

Meanwhile, Uzi confirmed that their next album will be entirely new, and not a deluxe or expanded version of Pink Tape. With that, hype once again surged for their next musical moves, as we’re sure will happen any time there’s a gap in releases. Hopefully that next project also features more Opium involvement, or goes in an entirely new direction altogether.
