SXSW Artist Watch: Lil’ Uzi Vert Is A New Voice For Philly


North Philly has another young block shaker staking his claim in the rap game.

Going by Lil’ Uzi Vert, the rapid bar spittin’ emcee has both the capabilities of firing off a full clip of street savvy bars and riding hypnotizing flows.

This week, Vert is making his rounds at the 2015 SXSW festival in Austin, Texas where VIBE caught the rapper tearing up the stage with DJ Don Cannon and DJ Drama. Right now, he’s got a sizable Internet and street buzz fueling his movement.

We suggest you keep an watchful eye on the young bul. He’s got some major players and collaborators helping curate his unique voice.
