Lil Uzi Vert – StarStruck V6 download mp3
Symere Bysil Woods (b. July 31, 1994), popularly known as Lil Uzi Vert, is an American recording artist from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
In an interview with Vibe Magazine, the Francisville, North Philadelphia native explained the origins of his stage name:
Some guy was just like ‘You rap fast, man. Like a little machine gun,’ and from that moment I was Lil Uzi.
Uzi also added “Vert” to the end of his stage name. In an interview with Rolling Stone, Uzi described the meaning of “Vert” as “straight to the top, like a vertical leap.“ Lil Uzi Vert is also a loose homophone for Lucifer, a name that fits perfectly with his satanic image.
Uzi first gained recognition with the release of single “Money Longer” and his 2015 mixtape Luv Is Rage. However, Uzi’s feature on Migos’ “Bad and Boujee” and the release of his hit single “XO TOUR Llif3” gave Uzi significant popularity and exposure, peaking at #1 and #7 on the Billboard Hot 100 respectively.
