Lil Uzi Vert is teasing his upcoming mixtape, Barter 16, by sharing a photo of themself with a purple IV in their arm.

Lil Uzi Vert Posts Purple IV Photo to Instagram to Tease Barter 16 Mixtape

On Friday (July 14), Lil Uzi Vert hit up their Instagram page to once again tease their forthcoming mixtape, Barter 16. In the process, the Pink Tape artist was sure to share a particularly eye-catching photo.

In the image posted below, Lil Uzi Vert can be seen sprawled out on a hospital bed inside a medical facility with their arm stretched out as anyone getting a procedure or operation would do. However, in the case of one Uzi Vert, the "Just Wanna Rock" rapper's intravenous doesn't seem to contain any sort of vital fluids rather it contains purple liquid.

What Is the Purple Liquid in Lil Uzi Vert's IV Photo?

While fans immediately began to flood the comments section with jokes about lean and the typical Satan-centric jabs Lil Uzi Vert has become accustomed to, Uzi slid into the thread to clarify things.

"F**k a double cup," Lil Uzi Vert commented on their own photo below. "I wanna feel it faster."

Isn't Lil Uzi Vert Sober?

What many fans may find peculiar about Lil Uzi Vert's unique form of mixtape promotion is that the "XO Tour Llif3" artist has been on a widely publicized journey with sobriety. In fact, just last month, Uzi opened up about going to rehab for seven months.

"I spent seven months in rehab," Lil Uzi Vert told 032c magazine in June. "The first month and a half were hard, but after that, it wasn't easy because the people there became my family. They showed me so many different outlets and ways to cope with life. We did a lot of group talks, a lot of writing on whiteboards. I was so sure that it wasn't going to work, but surprisingly it's pretty effective."
