Lil Uzi Vert pulled up to a pizza spot for a bulky order this past weekend and made sure to treat the staff with the same love they showed them.
On Sunday (July 16), New York City’s Cuts & Slices Pizzeria posted a compilation of clips from Uzi’s visit to their outlet. The post shows the 27 year old rapper picking up a large order, after which it cut to the workers in the kitchen celebrating as they each held cash in their hands.
The video was captioned: “@liluzivert PULLED UP BELOVED BLESSED THE STAFF [three winged-cash emojis, five heart emojis] Thank you we appreciate your support & love [bicep-flex emoji, praying-hands emoji, heart emoji, chef emoji].”

In the music space, Uzi is continuing the rollout for their Young Thug-inspired Barter 16 project by going a step further and dressing up as the YSL boss.
Despite releasing their long-awaited Pink Tape album just last month, the Philly rapper is already hard at work on two follow-up projects, with the other being the third installment in their Luv Is Rage series.
In a clip from a recent studio session, Lil Uzi Vert can be seen wearing a white suit that Young Thug previously wore, along with a red bandana similar to the one that the Atlanta rapper donned on the cover of Barter 6.
Barter 16 takes its title from Thug’s aforementioned 2015 mixtape, which itself was a somewhat controversial nod to Lil Wayne’s flagship Tha Carter series.
Lil Uzi Vert revealed plans for Barter 16 shortly after Pink Tape went to No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart earlier this month, earning roughly 167,000 album-equivalent units in its first week.
“Sitting here thinking /bout how I went #1 on a experimental tape,” they wrote on their Instagram Stories. “My apologies Barter 16 mixtape on the way.”
Along with the announcement, Lil Uzi Vert saluted Young Thug, who remains behind bars awaiting trial in the YSL RICO case, by writing: “Free Slime.”
