Lil Uzi Vert is a rapper tailor-made for now, when dropping tracks and whole albums out of the blue is the de rigueur distribution method. These days it’s the prolific artists who rule the new roost, who can always give themselves their own boost by just letting fly. The hell with the PR machine and the build-up — that’s yesteryear’s game.
Lil Uzi is just 22. He’s got the boundless energy of youth and ambition. He’s coming after it, as he announced with Lil Uzi Vs The World, the mixtape he dropped to booming effect in April. Now over the weekend Lil Uzi added to his quick-growing legend and his catalog with a 10-track drop called The Perfect Luv Tape. The last one is called “Seven Million” and it features Future. Lil Uzi is rolling.
