Symere Woods, mostly known by his stage name Lil Uzi Vert, is an American rapper and songwriter.  Lil Uzi Vert was born on July 31, 1994 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.  He first became recognized when his debut single, “Money Longer”.  His recognized album is Lil Uzi Vert vs. the World.  His more catchy song at this moment is XO Tour Llif3

Lil Uzi Vert also released Luv is Rage and The Perfect Luv Tape.  He then proceeded to release his first mixtape “Luv is Rage” on October 30th, 2015.  His second mixtape “Lil Uzi Vert vs. the World” was released April 15, 2016.  That is his most recognized album.  His third mixtape “The Perfect Luv Tape” was released a on his 22nd birthday on July 31, 2016

Lil Uzi Vert will drop his mixtape “Luv is Rage 1.5” later this year as expected.  His  successful collaboration was with the rap group Migos in 2016 on the single “Bad and Boujee” which reached number one on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 . He has made some collaborations with artists such as: Wiz Khalifa, ASAP Ferg, Gucci Mane and many more.  Lil Uzi Vert has stated in an interview with Complex that his influences were artists such as: Wiz Khalifa, Kanye West, ASAP Rocky, Young Thug, Lil Wayne, Ying Yang Twins, Pharrell Williams and Marilyn Manson.

His rapping skills were noticed by Don Cannon, who heard one of Uzi’s songs being played on the radio by DJ Diamond Kuts.  Uzi later signed a record deal with DJ Drama, Don Cannon and Leighton Morrison’s record label Generation Now and Atlantic Records.  He won a Billboard Music Award  in 2017 for his hit “Bad and Boujee” with Migos. Let’s hope his upcoming album will be as outstanding as that, his song from the album “XO Tour Llif3” is already catchy enough!
