At the age of 22, ultra-charismatic entertainer Lil Uzi Vert’s name is everywhere, especially since he worked with Migos on the tune “Bad and Boujee”, which was US number 1 in January 2017. He’s named after the machine pistol because of his super-fast flow, which he has been perfecting for years. His influences include Marilyn Manson and Wiz Khalifa, who features on his fourth mixtape Luv Is Rage along with Young Thug. “This is just the beginning” he has promised, with the attitude you’d expect of a rock star. We can take him at his word – he’s certainly capable of reshaping hip-hop. He’ll be going places in 2017.
