Lil Uzi Vert’s Fun Facts

Lil Uzi Vert is a famous rapper that can be recognized by their many face tattoos, piercings, interesting hairstyle, and androgynous sense of fashion.

One important thing to know about Lil Uzi Vert’s personal life is that they are nonbinary, so the pronouns you need to use are them/they/their.
Their music is influenced by artists such as Wiz Khalifa and Meek Mill, and they started rapping around the age of 15, in 2010, in school.
“You can’t say I look like this person or sound like this person exactly because I made it my own. I’m pretty, pretty influenced by myself right now.” – Lil Uzi Vert
They soon dropped school and started working at a Bottom Dollar store that fired them after only 4 days. That made their mom kick them out of their house as well
“Don’t get me wrong: school is good and all, but school is way too slow for me. Like, super slow. So I didn’t want to go. I wanted to learn on my own with real-life experiences.” – Lil Uzi Vert
But these unfortunate events only led them to take their rap career seriously and get their first face tattoo that said “Faith”, positioned under their hairline.
They were part of the Steaktown group, which broke up two years after they joined, in 2012, and called themselves “Sealab Vertical”.
A few of the other names they used for themselves over the years, are Renji, Baby Pluto, Uzi Vert, Sasuke, and Uzi London, and in the end, they became Lil Uzi Vert.
“Some guy was just like, ‘You rap fast, man. Like a little machine gun,’ and from that moment, I was Lil Uzi.” – Lil Uzi Vert
Their first commercial mixtape, released in April 2016, debuted in 37th place on Billboard 200, and was called “Lil Uzi Vert vs. the World”, spent 55 weeks on there and was certified gold for it.
But no single of theirs managed to beat “XO Tour Llif3″‘s popularity, gaining over 499 million fans since its release. Definitely one of the reasons they are famous.

He’s right, it’s good to know the old ways, but only so we can advance and make the future better, not get stuck there. Nothing that was worth remembering came from something that was done before.
