Lil Uzi Vert ‘Lil Uzi Vert vs. The World’
Green-haired Philly rapper drops a surprise release
There have been easily identifiable ‘moments’ for certain rappers — 2015 Future, 2011 Wiz Khalifa, 2007 Lil Wayne — where a single artist is able to latch on and pioneer a sound, and merk every feature they got. Lil Uzi has been extremely in his zone over the past 6 months or so, working his way from a green-haired Philly internet trapper to an artist collaborating with Young Thug, 2 Chainz, and the aforementioned Wiz Khalifa (who’s also easily the biggest inspiration for young Uzi).
Completely unannounced, Lil Uzi Vert has put out his ‘Lil Uzi Vert vs. The World,’ tape, something that hadn’t even been hinted at in interviews. Featuring production from Maaly Raw, Don Cannon, Metro Boomin, and Wondagurl, it’s the perfect opportunity for Uzi to ride his ever-growing wave. No features present on the project, but early notable tracks include “Ps & Qs,” which features a weird accordion sample. Stream the project below.
