Lil Uzi Vert is an American rapper and songwriter. He is best known for his chartbusting single ‘Bad and Boujee’ which peaked at number one position on the ‘US Billboard Hot 100.’ Uzi’s interest in rapping began when he was in high school. Inspired by one of his friends, he took up rapping and went on to establish himself as a prominent rapper in the music industry. In 2016, he was mentioned by media houses as one of the names to watch out for in the upcoming years, thanks to his huge fan following. His signature rapid delivery has been long praised and admired. Also, the fact that he draws inspiration from not just a single source makes his music different. Uzi’s non-conformity to Philadelphia’s long-held reputation of shotgun-mouthed, battle-ready MCs is a major plus point for him. Unlike other rappers, Uzi’s style is a mix of nasal vocal tone and melody. His rapping does not seem forced nor does he try to come up with several rhyming words or lines to make his rap sound intricate. Though Uzi’s musical journey began early, he achieved fame when he came up with his third mixtape ‘Luv Is Rage.’ He followed it up with his subsequent mixtapes, such as ‘Lil Uzi Vert vs. the World’ and ‘The Perfect Luv Tape,’ both of which were released in 2016. Currently, he has established himself as one of the talents to watch out for in the music industry.
