He may have only released his debut album in August – but the aftermath has pinned the young Philadelphia-based rapper as the “King of the kids”. LUV Is Rage 2 features 16 tracks of smooth rap, trap beats, emo feelings, lean psych and tight wordplay. Huge single ‘XO Tour Llif3’ showcases this precise songwriting, tapping into an addictive brand of aesthetic pain with the anthemic chorus of “All my friends are dead, push me to the edge” over slick production. It’s a winning combination, with that track alone amassing nearly 500 million streams on Spotify.
Uzi’s success is no surprise considering his fresh mixtapes have been making waves since he was just 20 years old. Collaborating with superstars including The Weeknd and Pharrell Williams on his debut proves the voice of the new generation is unstoppable.
