Lil Uzi Vert on tour, playing NYC twice (including Roots Picnic in Bryant Park)
Philly rapper Lil Uzi Vert made his NYC debut earlier this year after a promising 2015, and he continues to take off. He played Roots Picnic in Philly on Saturday (6/4) and then began his tour in Oakland the next night. Check out some videos from Roots Picnic (including one with Meek Mill dancing on stage) below.
He makes his way to NYC later this month for a show at Irving Plaza on June 29 with 21 Savage and Yfn Lucci. There appears to be a limited amount of tickets available, but Ticketmaster says "not many left." Other dates on his tour are with Kodak Black.
You'll also have another chance to catch Lil Uzi in NYC when he returns for the first-ever NYC Roots Picnic in Bryant Park. He plays the second day (October 2) with Wu-Tang Clan, David Byrne, Nile Rodgers, and more. Tickets for the fest go on BrooklynVegan presale Wednesday (6/8) at 10 AM. All Lil Uzi dates are listed below.
Lil Uzi Vert made one of the standout appearances on A$AP Ferg's new album, and he recently put out his latest mixtape, Lil Uzi Vert vs. The World. It's got production by Metro Boomin, Wondagurl, Don Cannon and more, and plenty of the auto-tuned sing-rapping that's defined a lot of rap lately. Listen below. He's also been teasing a collaborative song with Meek Mill and Nicki Minaj.
