“Reading her mind like I’m psychic (ay) I am a Leo like lion (ay) Better than me then he lying (ay) Money older than Joe Biden (ay).” — Lil Uzi Vert
If you likes these luscious and saucy lyircs,then you’ll love the up and coming new artist Lil Uzi Vert. The 20 year old rapper’s real name is Symere Woods, and is from North Philadelphia, PA.
Centerstage.com write,“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 spontaneous 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.”
Mr.Woods, aka Lil Uzi Vert, has a very unique style of music as you can tell from the lyrics above. It’s something different, and it’s safe to say we need that something different in the rap and music industry. Mr. Woods is a huge Marilyn Manson fan.
“I like the fact that he sounds different from other rappers. His sound is just different and I like his beats,” said Keyon Miles, freshmen at Bryant and Stratton College.
Lil Uzi had a “Left Right” Tour this winter with another upcoming artist Playboi Carti. They performed in New York City, Houston, Los Angeles and DC. The two have a song together called “Left Right” and is considered one of the catchiest songs of the year according to Bluntiq.com. Lil Uzi has a snippet of his new song on his twitter @LILUZIVERT: “Stay on my P’s and Q’s (yah) stay on my Q’s and my P’s, cause that happen to me (yah) brought that girl to the big league (yah) diamonds all in my teeth (yah) diamonds all in my teeth.”
If you wanna listen or get a taste of what Lil Uzi is all about, here is his song Money Longer.
