Rich The Kid Hints at “Dead Friends” Video Being About Lil Uzi Vert
On Monday (April 23), Rich The Kid dropped the visuals for his latest single, "Dead Friends." Directed at his enemies, the video features a Lil Uzi Vert look-alike being beaten and buried. Rich hasn't confirmed the person in the video represents Lil Uzi but during a recent run-in with TMZ, the rapper hinted at it.
When asked if his relationship with the "XO Tour Llif3" rapper was definitely over, Rich avoided the question, instead asking, "You seen the video, right? So, you know what the fuck goin' on!" The rapper was also asked if he had a message for Lil Uzi Vert, but the "New Freezer" artist skipped that question as well, opting to rap the lyrics of his new song. "All them dead friends/You a middleman/You a little man," he spit.
The "Dead Friends" video features a man who sports green dreadlocks, similar to Lil Uzi's signature purple hairstyle. The look-alike pitches himself to land a spot on Rich's record label but is then attacked by Rich's crew. The video ends with the rapper getting ready to hit the look-alike over the head with a shovel and pulling his body into a grave.
Rich The Kid and Lil Uzi Vert have been going back and forth on social media since the beginning of 2018 with the "Plug Walk" rapper even teasing an Uzi diss track. The beef between the two appears to stem from Lil Uzi taking a shot at DJ Drama and Rich telling the Philadelphia rapper he should have signed with Rich Forever Music.
