Uzi has been having a great year and this song is perhaps his biggest hit to date. The rapper recorded the single while he was on tour with The Weeknd for the European leg of his “Starboy: Legend of the Fall Tour.” The four-minute cut was produced by Off-White Films and directed by Virgil Abloh. The gory video gives fans a graphic glimpse what life is like behind the scenes while the Philly rapper was touring with the XO leader.
In one scene Lil Uzi Vert walks through the streets wearing a glittering shirt and vest while Arabic letters float at the bottom of the screen. In another scene, you can see dead bodies in a bathtub with blood everywhere. Pretty sure that didn’t happen on tour, but it compliments the gory theme. “XO Tour Llif3” is featured on Uzi’s debut album Luv Is Rage 2 released last month. The single has since been certified double-platinum and reached the top ten on Billboard Hot 100 chart. The album also debuts at number one on the Billboard 200 album chart this week after selling 135,000 copies including streaming equivalent units in the first week.
The single also won Song of the Summer at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards. Lil Uzi Vert is one of the hottest young rappers on the scene currently and has songs with some of the biggest names in the game including Nicki Minaj.
