Philly’s Lil Uzi Vert, continues to impress as he makes a guest performance at A$AP Rocky’s, GUE$$ Originals striped T-shirt release. The event was held at The Box, which is located in the Lower East Side of New York. The venue was packed, of course and a huge crowd bombarded the area so much that the fire marshal had to shut the doors before 9 p.m.
Despite the brutal temperature outside, this did not stop fans from anxiously waiting for A$AP Rocky, Lil Uzi Vert, Playboi Carti, and A$AP Twelvy to arrive. When the artists did arrive, most of them fashionably rocked the striped GUE$$ T-shirts in various colors while they made sure that the party was lit.
In a recent interview with Hot 97, A$AP Rocky shouted out Lil Uzi for his artistry. As spectators, we are currently watching greatness in the making as Lil Uzi continues to pave his way within the music industry.
He has songs featuring artists like Young Thug and Wiz Khalifa, who appeared on his last mixtape LUV is Rage.
These two artists have been quite influential in Uzi’s life and have helped shape his musical cadence. When speaking about the homie Thugger, Lil Uzi said “Young Thug, definitely. He helped me a lot with tones now. I helped him with stuff too.”
Is it hard to believe that an artist on the come up artist, like Lil Uzi Vert is giving tips to one of the most known faces of this Hip-Hop generation?
The two artists have collaborated on the following tracks: “Big Racks”, “Yamborghini Dreaming”, and “Yeah H*e”, where Thug and Uzi display their ability to manipulate their voices on each track.
Lil Uzi also kick starts his Left Right Tour with Playboi Carti on Feb. 24th, 2016.
