Lil Uzi Vert
Le rappeur de Philadelphie Lil Uzi Vert s’est affirmé en 1 an comme l’une des étoiles montantes du monde du rap, partagé entre la niaque de son homie Meek Mill et la créativité sous perfusion d’autotune de Young Thug, son parrain. Ceux qui apprécient un certain rap sans complexe, accrocheur et dynamité peuvent ouvrir grand leurs bras.
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.
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.”
