(AllHipHop News) Rich The Kid is set to drop his debut studio album, The World Is Yours, on March 30. The LP closes out with what is perceived to be a Lil Uzi Vert diss song titled "Dead Friends.”
After teasing the record on social media, Rich debuted the DJ Mustard-produced track on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 show. The Rich Forever label head also spoke about its connection to his recent digital jabs at Uzi.
“It’s funny. I made this record months before all that sh-t, and so whatever’s in the dark comes to light. So you listen to the song you know what’s going on,” said the Atlanta rapper.
Rich added, “Well you know it's funny. I'm just waiting to see if he's going to reply back. You know you can't write better than me though.”
The World Is Mine will include contributions from Kendrick Lamar, Future, Khalid, Rick Ross, Chris Brown, Lil Wayne, Offset, Quavo, Swae Lee, Trippie Red, and Jay Critch. With the hit records “New Freezer” and “Plug Walk” living on the project, commercial expectations for the LP are fairly high.
RTK seems confident his body of work will have an impact on the culture. He declared, “I've got the biggest album of the year.”
