Lil Uzi Vert Early Life
Symere Woods was born on July 31, 1994. He listened to hip-hop artists like Mike Jones and the Ying Yang Twins as a small child. By the age of 13, Woods had moved on to rock artists such as Marilyn Manson and My Chemical Romance. These influences would push Woods to pursue a career in music and shape what was to become Lil Uzi Vert’s style. He first started rapping in high school with his friends before soon dropping out. After quitting his job at a grocery store and being kicked out of the house by his mom, Woods decided he would take the rap profession seriously.
Lil Uzi Vert Personal Life
Woods dated fashion designer Brittany Byrd from 2014-2017. Byrd was attending Parsons School of Design after moving to California to attend the school when she met Woods. There are multiple mentions over several songs of Byrd in Woods’ music. She also appeared in the music video for Woods’ breakout single “Money Longer.”
After the death of rapper Lil Peep, Uzi announced he was quitting drugs and attempting sobriety. After the death of another fellow rapper and friend XXXTentacion, Woods took to social media to ask other rappers to help build a foundation against gun violence.
Lil Uzi Vert Career
Lil Uzi Vert began listening to Marilyn Manson and Kanye 808 at a young age.
He later found his form of music close to his heart and was jealous of all the attention his friend, Marilyn Manson, was getting and that’s why he began rapping. His career began quickly and he made his debut on some DJ Diamond Kuts tracks.
Uzi gained attention after being featured on Carnage’s single ‘WDYW’ with ASAP Ferg and Rich the Kid, in 2015. He later came up with his first commercial and third overall mixtape ‘Luv Is rage’.
He soon followed his breakthrough with ‘Lil Uzi vs The World’ mixtape in 2016. Two of its tracks ‘You Was Right’ and ‘Money Longer’ reached the Billboard Hot 100, and the album made it to the Billboard 200 Top 50.
At the end of 2016, he began to work with Migos, and they later decided to come up with the viral hit ‘Bad & Boujee’. The track reached number one on the US Billboard Hot 100 in 2017.
How did Lil Uzi get so rich?
Lil Uzi was the opening act for “The Weeknd’s” European tour in 2016, and besides resulting in the two collaborating, was the first major tour of his career. Even though he was the opening act he had already become well known enough to demand a high booking fee.
In 2017, Luv Is Rage 2 doubled as his debut studio album and as a sequel to his acclaimed mixtape released in 2010. The Luv Is Rage 2 release reached number one on the Billboard 200 with an equivalent of 135,000 record sales, which was above expectations. He even re-released the record as a deluxe edition with six bonus tracks, which acted like a victory lap of sorts for the rapper, cashing in on an already incredibly successful record.
Besides surely charging hundreds of thousands per feature on a track, Lil Uzi’s booking fee is one of the highest for such a young rapper and performer. Uzi’s booking fee ranges from $150,000-$300,000 per show. And as he is certain to go on a world tour to promote his latest two albums as soon as the pandemic is over, Uzi is going to see his net worth grow exponentially.
He smartly requested to renegotiate his contract with his record label in mid-2019 after he had problems with them as they essentially shelved his Luv Is Rage 2 follow up, Eternal Atake. He felt so wound up that he considered quitting music entirely. He felt like he was being taking advantage of by Generation Now, his then record label. Uzi eventually re-signed to Roc Nation that gave him more freedom, more success, and more money.
How Lil Uzi Vert got his name
It’s hard not to notice how unusual Lil Uzi Vert’s name is. The artist got his name because of his unique rap style. He originally rapped under the name Vert, short for vertical. Lil Uzi told Vibe magazine someone commented on how fast he raps, and so he lengthened his name to Lil Uzi Vert. “Some guy was just like, ‘You rap fast, man. Like a little machine gun,’” he told Vibe.
This isn’t the first rapper to get his name because he raps fast. Another artist who raps in a rapid-fire pace is Machine Gun Kelly, also known as Colson Baker. His name is also a reference to George “Machine Gun Kelly” Barnes. George Barnes was a well-known criminal who was given a life prison sentence for engaging in illegal liquor trafficking, kidnapping, and bank robbery.
