Don Cannon was the latest guest on Ed Lover’s “C’mon Son” podcast and he revealed alongside DJ Drama that Lil Uzi Vert records 700 songs a year. Lil Uzi Vert is currently signed with Cannon and Drama’s Generation Now label.
“I saw his work ethic, and I was like damn, these are all the qualities we need,” Cannon explains. When Lover asked him just how hardworking Uzi is, “Six songs a day. About 700 songs a year.”
He also follows it up with, “He’s a studio rat. You would think somebody that is performing and out there as much as he is, he wouldn’t be in the room as much. He does not leave that space. He beats me in that space.”
