Playboi Carti Teams Up With Lil Uzi Vert for Unreleased Collaboration 'Big Bank': Listen
Just last week, Playboi Carti relayed to L.A.'s 92.3 in an interview that he has over "100 songs" with Lil Uzi Vert, as the pair have been recording together since 2015 and have connected on a number of riveting tracks during their emerging careers. Another tune from the vault surfaced online Tuesday (Aug. 7), with Cash Carti serving as the lead artist on the Uzi-assisted "Big Bank."
A lower-quality version of the Pi'erre Bourne-produced track was unearthed last month, prior to the CDQ surfacing from the "wokeuplikethis*" collaborators on Tuesday. The ad-lib-filled "Big Bank" could possibly appear on the duo's rumored joint album 16*29, which is still without a confirmed release date.
"Big Bank" finds Lil Uzi Vert and Carti repetitiously hyping each other up while boasting about their enthralling fast and furious lifestyle. "Smoking that Purp, blowing that dank/ I'm in the Lamb like a race/ Hop in that 'Vette and I'll race/ Hop in that coupe and I'll race," Playboi loosely raps.
Earlier in the same interview with 92.3, the Atlanta native shared that he worked with the elusive Frank Ocean on about five songs just over a month ago. "Frank Ocean, he's the GOAT," Carti says. "Last time I worked with him was in New York about a month ago. We did like five songs. You know, it's Frank so he move how he moves."
Carti also took to his Twitter on Tuesday night to explain that he has been diagnosed with the "worst case of asthma." "Breathing is so difficult for meh @ da moment! Literally scared to fall asleep on my back. I have da worst case of asthma. N never knew [until] today. To all my fans who suffer from asthma! I’m with [you and] we as a whole must stay strong," he penned.
Give "Big Bank" a listen below.
