Lil Uzi Vert has revealed his Xbox Gamertag and invited fans to come play the new Call Of Duty with him.
During an appearance on the Grammys red carpet on Sunday (February 5), Uzi said he had no plans for after the awards, and that he’d probably retreat home and play some video games.
“Actually I’m probably just gonna go in the crib and play some video games,” he said. “Eat some Pop Tarts, Gushers. I’ve been playing a lot of COD. I got some friends on COD that I’ve been connecting with. I’ve been playing a lot of COD. I just got back on Fortnite.”
He continued, “I’ll be on there. My username is UziiiiiiiPink like seven ‘I’s’ though.”

The big reveal comes after Uzi hit the stage at the 65th Annual Grammy Awards on Sunday (February 5) to partake in the evening’s sprawling Hip Hop 50 Tribute show, which was curated by Questlove. The show was kicked off by Black Thought and The Roots before a barrage of Hip Hop pioneers took the stage, including Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five, Run-DMC, LL COOL J, Queen Latifah, Public Enemy, Rakim, Method Man, Missy Elliott and more. Uzi performed his current Jersey Club hit “Just Wanna Rock.”
In an interview earlier this week, DJ Drama claimed that “Just Wanna Rock” had dethroned Meek Mill’s “Dreams and Nightmares” as the unofficial song of the Philadelphia Eagles, considering Uzi also walked out the team during their NFC Championship game against the San Francisco 49ers last weekend.
“I think it’s fair to say that ‘Just Wanna Rock’ has replaced — with all due respect — ‘Dreams and Nightmares’ as the new anthem of Philadelphia, as the new anthem of the Philadelphia Eagles this year,” the Generation Now co-founder said. “I’m looking forward to hearing that song many, many times [throughout] Super Bowl weekend.”
However, Meek got wind of Drama’s comments and issued a quick reminder that “Dreams & Nightmares” has been blasting through stadiums for over a decade.
“Intro been lighting the world for 10 years!” he wrote. “Like shaking rooms for years!”
“Just Wanna Rock” sits at No. 12 on the Billboard Hot 100, marking its highest position since its October 2022 release. Produced by MCVertt and Synthetic, the two-minute song boasts over 191 million Spotify streams, with its music video racking up 50 million views on YouTube.
“Just Wanna Rock” remains Uzi’s third highest-charting song as a lead artist following “Futsal Shuffle 2020” (No. 5) and “XO Tour Llif3” (No. 7).
