While it’s true that the hip hop scene has been particularly difficult as the audience’s preference change rapidly, artists such as Lil Uzi are obviously managing to make a substantial breakthrough.
The young rapper has dropped his new album named “Luv is Rage 2” and quickly managed to hit the number one spot on all rap charts. To celebrate his achievements, the video of the “XO Tour Llif3” was finally officially released to the public. Needless to say, it achieved a massive outreach. Even though, if we have to be completely honest, that’s to be expected. With the tremendous outburst of social media and the abundance of social channels which could be taken advantage of, there’s absolutely no wonder that hit songs and their corresponding videos reach out to hundreds of millions of people throughout the world.
The whole video was directed by non-other than the infamous Kanye West, who’s played a major role in developing the young artist. The video fully represents the lyrics of Lil Uzi (“My friends are dead, push me off the ledge”) with images of zombies and fresh blood. We all know that if there’s someone who can diversify a clip enough that’s going to be Kanye.
To boost your expectations further, it’s important to notice that The Weekend is making a cameo in the video. The famous singer walks down an alley while singing along the lyrics. He is featured on another track of the album “Unfazed”.
