Lil Uzi Vert has been everywhere these days, so it shouldn't be surprising to see the former XXL Freshman is one of the first guests on MTV's revamped iteration of TRL. On Wednesday afternoon (Oct. 4), the rapper stopped by the video request show to turn in performances of two Luv Is Rage 2 standouts, “XO Tour Llif3” and “Sauce It Up.” 

Taking the stage under purplish-blue lights, Uzi definitely seemed to be into the whole vibe of being on the new TRL, which has already boasted guest appearances from the likes of Migos and Playboi Carti. Needless to say, things have been pretty lit in the early going of TRL 2017.

Speaking of pretty lit, Uzi was recently named one of 20 rap game luminaries getting their own cover for the 20th anniversary edition of XXL, due out on Oct. 17. Speaking with us at the cover shoot, the Philadelphia rapper touched on XXL's role in the world of hip-hop.

XXL’s responsibility to hip-hop is just to keep it going, how they been, like they kept it forever,” Uzi says in his XXL Fall 2017 cover story. “I mean, as long as I’ve been here, I knew XXL so gotta keep it going. If they stop then, you know, a lot of people won’t be able to get on.” Word up.

Check out Uzi's performances of “XO Tour Llif3” and “Sauce It Up” for yourself below.
