After teasing the track on social media, Rich The Kid has officially dropped the anticipated Lil Uzi Vert diss track “Dead Friends”.
Over a DJ Mustard production, Rich accuses his Philly-bred rival of changing “for fame”, while also referencing Uzi’s hit single “XO Tour Llif3” and “Money Longer” in the process.
“All them dead friends / You a middleman / You a lil’ man / Your money gettin’ shorter,” he raps.
The feud appears to stem from a Twitter exchange between the two on Twitter in January. After Uzi complained about being signed to DJ Drama’s label, Rich replied, stating: “That’s why you SHOULDA signed Rich forever.”
Uzi would reply, saying: “Boy I’m not signing for 20racks.”
Rich references this exchange on the song, rapping: “Come to Rich Forever, bBe a star.”
“Dead Friends” appears on Rich The Kid’s debut album, The World Is Yours, due out March 30.
