Evident in their raucous live performances, Lil Uzi Vert has one of the biggest cult followings and fanbases in all of hip-hop currently. Thanks to hits like “XO Tour Llif3,” “20 Min,” and “Just Wanna Rock,” they have been able to carve out a tremendously successful career.
While conspiracy theorists bring up the similarity it shares with the satanic name Lucifer, most people just assume it’s another silly “Lil” rapper name. Birthed Symere Bysil Woods, the 27-year-old Philadelphia artist actually has quite a bizarre story behind their stage name.
“Man, I was rapping one day and some guy was like, ‘You rap fast, man, like a machine gun. Like a lil’ Uzi or something.’ And at that moment I just (realized), ‘Lil Uzi, yeah that’s fire.’ To this day, he don’t even know that he gave me [it],” they said
“Just Wanna Rock” is a song by American rapper Lil Uzi Vert. It was released as the lead single for their third studio album Pink Tape (2023) through Atlantic Records and Generation Now on October 17, 2022
They previously teased it on the video-sharing app TikTok, in which the song gained over 500 million views.. “Just Wanna Rock” is an uptempo Jersey club song. It sees “Uzi chanting frantically over a synthy, queasy high-BPM beat”. The song includes a heavy beat with one short verse and a chorus that is barely above a whisper.
It was directed by Gibson Harazard, who worked with Woods in the past. The video features AMP members Kai Cenat and Fanum, upcoming Philly rapper 2Rare and Drew Jeeezy, who popularized the dance and it went viral on TikTok.
Seems to be one of the most popular songs in the country is causing a lot of mixed emotions. We are pretty sure you have heard Lil Uzi Vert hit song “XO Tour Life”
His girl seems to have cheat and lied to Uzi and is begging to be back in a relationship with him. The lyrics explain the rest before the repeating of “All my friends are dead push me to the edge”.
So now you know why he’s quoting the girl the song is based upon a situation that went terrible with his girlfriend.. Tennessean Briana Brown Is A Blessing To Anyone’s Timeline
1TOP RATED#1 top rated interpretation:anonymous Jul 14th 2017 report. The song is about a guy who is trying to breakup with his suicidal girlfriend for cheating on him
She looks him in the eye with utter devastation and says she will kill herself if he leaves her. He lost his friends to death somehow, whether it be violence or suicide, and he feels at a loss again
He resorts to Xanax, anything to get his mind off it. He doesn’t agree with other artists spitting on his game
Lil Uzi’s track “XO TOUR Llif3” is a bonafide hit record.. Since debuting almost three months ago and appearing on the Billboard Hot 100 at #49, it has amassed an enormous amount of streams.
With all of those streams, his single has steadily climbed the Hot 100 chart over the past ten weeks and is now sitting comfortably in the top ten at #9. Even though the TM88-produced track is a smash hit, many people have been left somewhat confused about the meaning of the chorus, “All my friends are dead.”
The producer recently sat down with Genius to break down the beat and to elaborate on what Uzi meant by the line.. He said, “Everybody else says it makes them feel like their friends are dead, but I know the concept
Lil Uzi Vert has a new hit, even if you don’t know it yet. A few weeks ago the kaleidoscope-haired rapper put four new songs up on his Soundcloud, the platform that helped propel him onto the verge of superstardom
Produced by the Atlanta beat-maker TM88, the song captures a back-and-forth between Uzi Vert and a suicidal romantic interest who has entered into his orbit:. Those final two lines repeat, composing the central motif of the song
Regardless, the official stream has racked up over 16 million plays in 15 days with no promotion beyond a link on Twitter.. Though the song is an instant hit among Uzi Vert’s growing and feverish fanbase—so much so that his label fast tracked an animated video that hit YouTube this morning—it also works as a good entry point for anyone who has not yet approached an artist who is poised to become one of the most ubiquitous voices in rap
We can say that “XO Tour Llif3” features three major themes. First and foremost, as detailed by the chorus, is a troubled romance Lil Uzi Vert had with his significant other at the time, a lady by the name of Brittany Byrd
And whereas it is clear he truly loves her and vice versa, it is also quite evident that they had some very-serious issues. And the way the terse storyline detailed in the chorus reads, she deceived him in a way that really hurt his feelings.
But either way, as a result of being hurt so, he likewise caused her significant emotional pain. And honestly, the way the lyrics read is as if she is actually threatening to take her own life as a result
“XO Tour Llif3” (stylized as “XO TOUR Llif3″ and pronounced “XO Tour Life”) is a song by American rapper Lil Uzi Vert from the extended play Luv Is Rage 1.5 (2017) and debut album Luv Is Rage 2 (2017). It was released on SoundCloud on February 26, 2017, and later on all music streaming platforms on March 24, 2017
It was also their second top 10 entry overall after their feature on “Bad and Boujee” by Migos. It is Lil Uzi Vert’s most popular song, and has amassed over one billion streams on Spotify
A sequel to the song, titled “P2” was included on Lil Uzi Vert’s second album Eternal Atake (2020). The song has since come to be regarded as Lil Uzi Vert’s signature song.
Eight little things (a scene, a joke, a building, a pizza, a dance, a painting, a lyric, a sound) worth your time.. You may have heard it — the signature lyric in Lil Uzi Vert’s “XO Tour Llif3”: “Push me to the edge / all my friends are dead”
“Mumble rap” — what some might call his approach — is the derisive, catch-all term for music made by young people with little regard for hip-hop dogmas like lyrical intricacy or attention to a beat.. But it’s often a misnomer, wielded too freely against hybrid singer-rappers that value melody (and, yes, style) over traditional rhyming
On “XO Tour Llif3,” the surprise Top 10 single, Lil Uzi Vert’s lyrics are sharp and vivid when he wants them to be, detailing a toxic, pill-fogged and not-quite monogamous relationship from within the crosswinds of a fight.. It’s the whiny, pop-punkish delivery of the choicest lines that helped make the song a crossover pop hit:
Billboard is celebrating the 2010s with essays on the 100 songs that we feel most define the decade that was — the songs that both shaped and reflected the music and culture of the period — with help telling their stories from some of the artists, behind-the-scenes collaborators and industry insiders involved.. The story behind Lil Uzi Vert’s nihilistic 2017 smash, “XO TOUR Llif3,” is a classic tale of triumph through tragedy
But he would get caught up in what would become January’s Fort Lauderdale airport shooting, where a perpetrator flew in from Alaska and took the lives of five victims.. “I was trying to board my flight and then we see a stampede of people just running towards us and we just ran on the plane,” he recalls
“I ended up just dropping all my shit … I got back home and was like, ‘D–n bro, I have nothing.’”. So he had no choice but to remake all the beats on a cracked computer screen
Passive Lil Uzi Vert fans may have been surprised by the drop but loyal listeners know that Uzi’s Luv is Rage 2 album debuted at No. Along with this new great achievement came the long-awaited music video for “XO Tour Llif3.”
This trip is led by Virgil Abloh, a DJ, fashion designer, and creative director who is known for his work with Jay-Z, Kanye West, and his Milan based Off-White brand. Beyond Uzi’s sparkling fashion taste, he keeps his viewers by his side by showing them his world.
The video takes a quick turn as Uzi enters and the song flows into the chorus with his lyrics “All my friends are dead / Push me to the edge” actually showing us his “dead friends.” Close ups of zombies and pools of blood are met with shots of the Weeknd and NAV, surprise appearances for all of us.

I know this because the people I love have been left behind by their country, and yet none of them are able to leave. We can’t leave because we can’t afford to, or because we may never be able to come back, or because we still retain hope that “this really isn’t who we are,” too afraid to ask outright who actually considers themselves a part of said “we.” In trying to belong we’ve ultimately become trapped, and for a country obsessed with its own guarded exceptionalism, being an American in 2017 is an increasingly vulnerable proposition.
But it’s been difficult to spin the current state of cultural affairs as anything other than a battle fundamentally between good and evil. Evil, for all that we’ve been able to slow it down, is winning
