In Uzi's cover story for 032c magazine's Summer 2023 issue he shared, "I'm lucky to have people in my life who truly care about me and my well-being. Specifically, [Roc Nation CEO] Desiree Perez, who helped me get into this program. I didn't want to do it but I had to — and I can say now that it was a great thing to do." "I spent seven months in rehab," he continued. "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." How have drugs or alcohol negatively impacted your life?
