About

Hip-hop could certainly use a real bona fide rockstar. That's where Lil Uzi Vert comes in. The Philadelphia rapper flaunts a vision and fashion sense just as loud as his "futuristic trap" sound and dynamic voice. He doesn't simply stand out in a crowd; he draws everyone right to him. "I try to create a world," the 20-year-old declares. "It's rap, but I get a lot of influence from rock music. When you see me or hear me, I want the experience to be dark and crazy with a lot of moshing." Growing up in the city Schoolly D, The Roots, Meek Mill, and Rocky Balboa call home, Lil Uzi Vert first picked up a microphone in high school. He spent countless hours honing his craft, making sporadic trips to New York City in order to record through his friend William Aston's studio connection. Along the way, he carved out a distinct style that reflects his love for Wiz Khalifa as much as it does his passion for Marilyn Manson. "I take influences from everything and put them into what I do," he says. "It's a really delicate balance, and it's something I'm proud of. You can wear skinny jeans and still be hard." Now, signed to Generation Now founded by DJ Drama, Don Cannon and Leighton Morrison alongside Atlantic Records, Lil Uzi Vert stands poised to ignite hip-hop with his own fire. "I take modern rap and put more musical influence to it under the trap," he leaves off. "I want to show people the future and what's possible with the sound. This is who I am. This is my world."
