EDITORS’ NOTES

This Philadelphia native was once known for his hometown's choppy and fast rap style. But Lil Uzi Vert's breakthrough, Luv Is Rage, cohered with a zeitgeist-infused blend of melody and trap production—a style more associated with Atlanta and Chicago. The smeared vocals of "7AM" suggest inebriation, while the sneering style of “Top” telegraphs in-your-face attitude. Uzi Vert's bad-kid persona, delivered with a wink, unites the loose threads of his influences and lets him experiment with atypical production, as in the percussive, swirling synthesizer noise of "Belly."
