AceShowbiz - Lil Uzi Vert has responded to criticism of his "satan" lyric. When offering his clarification about the line, the emcee declared that his girlfriend JT has no problem with it because it's not literal.
For the record, Uzi suggested on his unreleased track that he has converted his girlfriend JT to satanism. "I make a City Girl believe in Satan," he rapped during his set at Rolling Loud California.
Now in an interview with TMZ, he claimed the lyric wasn't a reference to satanism so people must not take it too seriously. "Basically, I make a girl do whatever I say so," he said.
Asked how the City Girls member felt about the line, the "Just Wanna Rock" spitter said, "She really didn't think much of it." He also divulged that she was in the studio when he created the song, saying, "She knows what I really mean."
Uzi also made it clear that he "doesn't pay attention" to the backlash. "I just say what I want in my songs. It's like my freedom of speech," he stated.
