Wiz Khalifa Welcomes Lil Uzi Vert to Taylor Gang
Uzi and Wiz collaborated back in May on "Pull Up," the first single off Wiz's upcoming Rolling Papers 2 album. The Pennsylvania connection will deepen though, as Uzi joins a roster that includes Ty Dolla $ign, Juicy J, SosaMann and more.
In the above video, Wiz spits a crazy double-time flow at an Uzi show in Philly, saying afterward, "Taylor Gang, we got Lil Uzi Vert now, welcome to the motherfuckin gang, nigga. Thank you for bringing me out to Philly. Thank you for being the most influential young nigga."
On Twitter, Wiz and Uzi confirm the signing, which is as well through Atlantic. Wiz responds to a fan who asks whether or not Uzi is part of Taylor Gang by writing, "Definitely is gangster." Chevy Woods meanwhile, a longtime Taylor member, wrote to Uzi on Twitter earlier in the week, "my boy [flex]" he said, to which Uzi responded, "Gang."
Just yesterday, Uzi previewed a track off his upcoming Luv Is Rage 2 mixtape and if expectations weren't already high for the rising rapper, his new affiliations are sure to produce plenty of opportunities.
Watch Wiz make the announcement up above, with Luv Is Rage 2 expected to drop soon.
