Rap stars Lil Uzi Vert and Playboi Carti might still be friends. Although there has been speculation of a feud brewing and over the winter Uzi even tweeted that they were no longer buddies, it turns out whatever was going on might be settled.
Lil Uzi Vert Sets The Record Straight
Fans were saying that Lil Uzi was dissing Carti on new track “Sasuke,” but he clarified that he wasn’t doing that at all.

New LUV Tunes
Uzi Vert’s “Sasuke” came out last night after mounted anticipation. The anthem is also his first official release since putting out his Eternal Atake and its deluxe LUV vs. The World 2 albums.
The track is undoubtedly an ode to Sasuke Uchiha, a polarizing key character in popular anime/manga series Naruto. Throughout his music career, Uzi has continuously shared his love of the series, most famously likening his facial piercings to that of Pain’s (Nagato). Expected to appear on the rumored The Perfect LUV Tape 2, the Outtatown, Brandon Finessin and Oogie Mane produced track sees Lil Uzi Vert liken himself to one of the last surviving members of the Uchiha clan. Most notably Uzi raps “This is not no Naruto, but I chop that like Sasuke,” referencing Sasuke’s cold demeanor and the Sword of Kusanagi, a special chokutō that becomes his personal weapon in the later half of the series.
