On Being a Rapper:

‘Being a rapper is a facade, I ain’t going to lie bro, I’m here for a job. I’m here to record my album… But my friends would never have this opportunity to be here in a million lifetimes.

On His Relationship:

‘They’re scared people are gonna fuck their girlfriends, (bout Brittany specifically). I’m a rapper, bro. It’s fucked up. Our relationship is fucked up. But, you know, I love her for her and she loves me for me. So, you know. It’s always gon be good.’ (Through DJ Drama, Brittany declined to be interviewed.)

The Fader: Drama said he and Cannon wanted to bring you to Hawaii as a reward for all your hard work, I said. They feel like you wouldn’t reward yourself if it weren’t for them…
Lil Uzi: ‘I don’t know. I WOULDN’T reward myself. I’m already rewarded.’

The Fader: What do you mean?
Lil Uzi: ‘Oh, I’m already rewarded. I’m not dead and I don’t live where I was born. I got to be able to move, so I’m already rewarded. Shit ain’t for me.’

The Fader: So it’s a curse that you’re good at it?
Lil Uzi: ‘Yep. You wanna know what the curse is? I gotta take care of my family. That’s the curse right there. I gotta take care of my whole family. That’s why I can’t stop. If I ain’t have to take care of nobody, best believe I’d be regular as fuck.’
