Summer Walker has allegedly called into question some of Lil Uzi Vert‘s recent lyrics involving Satan, stating that the subject is no laughing matter.
The R&B singer reportedly took particular issue with Uzi’s line: “I make a city girl believe in Satan,” which appeared on a new song the Philadelphia rapper premiered at Rolling Loud California over the weekend.
The line in question was likely a reference to City Girls rapper JT, who Lil Uzi Vert has been dating on and off since late 2019.
“lol…..i be genuinely curious have these people ever seen or heard a demon before..?” Walker allegedly asked in an Instagram Story post on one of her burner accounts, according to The Shade Room. “Or it’s just a trend cause I feel like if you have you’d stop playin…really nothing funny or cute about it. May God be with y’all.”

Lil Uzi Vert debuted numerous new songs at Rolling Loud California over the weekend, many of which fans hope will appear on his highly anticipated Pink Tape project.
During his set, Vert previewed an unreleased track that hears him showing love to his “Shoota” collaborator and former rival Playboi Carti.
“Shout out to Carti, we don’t talk hardly, but that’s where my heart be,” he raps on the new track.
After previewing a few more records, Lil Uzi Vert spoke about the delay behind his forthcoming LP, and apologized for taking so long to drop the album. However, he said he’s putting the finishing touches on it now.
“I do make y’all wait a long time for music and I’m so sorry. I thought that shit was cool before but that shit is lame,” he admitted. “I’m putting the final touches on Pink Tape and I promise — I made a lot of promises in my life, but this time I promise.”
Generation Now co-founder Don Cannon recently said during a chat with My Expert Opinion that Uzi had recorded almost 700 songs for the new tape, and praised the “Just Wanna Rock” rapper for his impeccable work ethic.
“I gotta say him because he’s non-stop,” Cannon said of his artist. “Right now, we working on the album and he got 680 songs [from the last] 18 months. I call him the Kobe Bryant when he was saying he used to shoot jump shots after the game. That’s what he doing. He give you a hit and do five songs a day. Nobody believe me. I bring them to the studio to see.
“Sober, high, when he used to get high and now he sober doing it. Ain’t nothing changed. He one of them guys, and it’s different because you’re getting all different kind of songs out of him. You might get a rock song, a real rap song because he really rap, you might get the melodic shit that he do.”
He continued: “And that’s why I referenced Lil Wayne and them because Lil Wayne was the same. He’ll rap you to death, but he’ll still pull out a guitar and give you something.”
While fans patiently wait, Uzi’s single “Just Wanna Rock” has continued to top the Billboard charts in the meantime. The Jersey Club-inspired single sits just outside the Top 10 at No. 12 on this week’s Billboard Hot 100.
