Lil Uzi Vert was born Symere Bysil Woods on July 31, 1995, in Philadelphia, PA! Woods has made it clear that their pronouns are "they/them". Woods had mentioned that they were influenced by Wiz Khalifa, Meek Mill, the Ying Yang Twins, and Mike Jones. Their childhood was pretty rough. Woods had formed a rap group with their friends called Steaktown, which ended up disbanded when Woods was 17 years of age. It was not until 2010 when they started their music career. Woods went under the pseudonym "Sealab Vertical" to now "Lil Uzi Vert. Woods released their first EP Purple Thought Vol. 1, which was released in January in 2014. Their first EP was based on trippy and psychedelic production which is also known as "phonk" (a combination of hip hop & trap with jazz and funk). The following year, Woods released The Real Uzi, and then he was signed to Atlantic Records in 2015. Since they were signed to Atlantic Records, Woods released numerous projects: Luv Is Rage, Luv is Rage 2, Eternal Atake, Lil Uzi Vert vs. The World 2, Baby x Baby Pluto. My personal favorite album is Luv Is Rage 2, and my favorite song is New Patek!
Today, Lil Uzi released a song called Young & Famous. I can say I like the song and the sound Lil Uzi brings to the music scene. The song will make you head know and it does give the psychedelic feel. If you play this song with your LED lights set to the color blue, you will see what I mean! Overall, I think the song is dope!

We must give Lil Uzi the flowers they deserve, because being an African American being, the "status" is to be this hardcore rapper. However, Lil Uzi Vert brings the lighter side to the music scene. Hopefully, he creates a video for this song!
