Lil Uzi Vert

Aug. 14
7 p.m.

Lil Uzi Vert is a rap superstar with eccentric cult-artist tendencies, inspired by the spirit of guys like Marilyn Manson and GG Allin. Arguably the face of so-called “mumble rap,” the 24-year-old Philadelphia native has little to no use for conventional rap technique or ambitious lyricism, favoring playful flows and kinetic energy while working closely with producers Don Cannon and Maaly Raw. Uzi is also a daredevil live performer, regularly going viral on the internet thanks to fearless stage dives and other stunts.
