A rapper who grew up on the beats of Marilyn Manson and Kanye’s 808 & Heartbreak, Lil Uzi Vert came out of North Philadelphia with a relaxed style that connected the dots between Young Thug, Chief Keef, and the A$AP Mob. Debuting by featuring on some DJ Diamond Kuts tracks, Uzi kicked his career into high gear in 2014 when he dropped “Dej Loaf,” a dedication to the Detroit vocalist. By the end of 2016, his collaboration with Migos — the viral hit “Bad & Boujee” — began its ascent to the top of the Billboard Hot 100, hitting number one at the start of 2017. Later that year, Uzi issued the single “XO Tour Llif3.” The track climbed into the Top Ten of the Hot 100 and would be the first offering from his chart-topping debut LP, Luv Is Rage 2. The LP featured guests like Oh Wonder, Pharrell Williams, and the Weeknd.
