Lil Uzi Vert has recorded nearly 700 songs over the last 18 months as they prepare to release their highly-anticipated album The Pink Tape, according to Don Cannon.
During a recent appearance on Math Hoffa’s "My Expert Opinion" podcast, the DJ named Lil Uzi Vert as one of the best artists he’s worked with along with Lil Wayne and Busta Rhymes.
“I gotta say him because he’s non-stop,” Cannon said of the "Just Wanna Rock" rapper. “Right now, we working on the album and he got 680 songs [from the last] 18 months. I call him the Kobe Bryant when he was saying he used to shoot jump shots after the game. That’s what he doing. He give you a hit and do five songs a day. Nobody believe me. I bring them to the studio to see."
Cannon added, “Sober, high, when he used to get high and now he sober doing it. Ain’t nothing changed. He one of them guys, and it’s different because you’re getting all different kind of songs out of him. You might get a rock song, a real rap song because he really rap, you might get the melodic s**t that he do.”
He continued: “And that’s why I referenced Lil Wayne and them because Lil Wayne was the same. He’ll rap you to death, but he’ll still pull out a guitar and give you something.”
