20 of the Best Lyrics From Lil Uzi Vert’s ‘Luv Is Rage 2′ Album
The past few years in rap have seen a changing of the guard, where more lyrical rappers who were considered to be the voice of the youth have now aged into men among boys, leaving space for a new crop of upstarts to flourish. However, in contrast to their predecessors, who relied on conceptual brilliance, refined lyricism and cult followings among rap purists, these new voices draw on their energy, emotion and aesthetic to draw in the listener, one of the more popular among this set being Lil Uzi Vert.
Hailing from Philadelphia, Lil Uzi Vert's music may be a far cry from more cerebral work from the likes of his hometown elder brethren The Roots, Beanie Sigel and others, however, he is arguably the city's biggest rap star at the moment and has built a track record of hits that is hard to deny. Discovered by Don Cannon, who inked the rapper to his Generation Now imprint, Lil Uzi Vert came to prominence with the release of his 2015 mixtape, Luv Is Rage, but it would be his follow-up project, Lil Uzi Vert vs. the World, that would put the spotlight squarely on his dreads.
Garnering the hit singles "Money Longer" and "You Were Right," Lil Uzi Vert vs. the World was deemed one of the hottest mixtapes of 2016, helping him earn a slot on 2016 XXL Freshman cover, while gradually widening his fan base. Since then, his buzz has only increased, with Uzi scoring his first chart-topping hit after appearing on Migos' "Bad and Boujee," only to build on that momentum with his single, "XO Tour Llif3," which peaked at No. 7 on the Billboard Hot 100, making it his most successful solo single to date.
With the anticipation for his next at a fever pitch, Lil Uzi Vert unleashes his latest project, Luv Is Rage 2, the long-awaited sequel to his breakout mixtape. With the lone guest appearances being Pharrell Williams and The Weeknd, Luv Is Rage 2 allows Lil Uzi Vert to take center stage and captivate the listeners on his own merit, resulting in another display of Uzi's infectious melodies and effortless star power.
XXL gave Luv Is Rage 2 a spin and collected 20 of the hottest lyrics from the project that are sure to impress.
"They know I'm the one so it's no way they can stop it/Tried to run off with the swag I put ’em in pocket/Told my main girl to stop it/She saw me up in a picture I thought they cropped it"
"Look for your bitch you can't find her/I was the one right behind her/Talking that shit you get tied up/Don't got enough get your grind up/The reason I got all these bitches and got all these diamonds, I can't make my mind up/Mind up, she gave me head, gave that mind up"
"Woah fuck your bitch, I'm bored/Rockstar that's of course, White girl like Lorde/She don't really get too impressed, Honda Accord/Long as she get her beauty rest then I'm aboard/Got that girl wet, she need three towels/Call my phone like, every day, on speed dial/Hundred thousand, new watch, got like three dials/I don't eat out, hit once, leave out"
"These niggas keep hatin', this is their last warning/Met that girl last night, ooh, fucked her through the morning/Um, no, no girl, I'm sorry, hang up girl don't call me/No, no, you will not get me caught up all up on Maury/Cash out, make it rain, no game, Atari/Ride me like a Harley, only boy in the party/I was on the phone, yeah with Playboi Carti/Commes des Garçon, hearts all on my cardi'"
"Rich by the morning, new whip, with the big Forgies/New crib, that's a new fortress/You dig, choppa with the cartridge/My line, move with cautious/My time loud in the morning/My bracelet got like 40 in it, yeah/That shit funny, that boy countin 40's/My swag so important/Off-white alike with the Jordans"
"Sleep on em that's Tempurpedic/Get the green like it's count, pockets they fat just like Kenan/Told her I love her ain't mean it/That's because I hit the meanest/You heard that I am from Mars/I heard that you was from Venus/I met that bitch in a meeting/I fucked that bitch from the meeting"
"Won't say no names but my niggas they pulled up/You niggas talk too much, get your mouth sewed up/Look at my chain, know it's ice ’cause it's snowing/Vivienne West but my friend looking polo/My Gosha from Dover I drive in the Rover/Homie don't know me don't get in my moment/All that sneak dissing don't think that I ain't noticed/I left my door and I forgot to close it"
"Rick Owens all on my shirt, I can't believe I made it out the dirt/That was back then when my pockets was hurt/Pockets so stuffed that them shits still be hurtin'/Walk with the Goyard, they say its a purse/Louis stuffed on me it look like a curatin'/My main girl a doctor, my side girl a nurse"
"Admit it, I move like amoeba/I float in the room like I'm reefer/Alien, I’m not your kind of people/Tell a telepathic fam how I read ya/You ain't got emeralds that's greener/You ain’t got rich up the sleeve/And I got a Rolls that's in the Grove, that I ain't drove/Shit, I don't know the reason" - Pharrell Williams
"See, musically, Lil Uzi trapping man/Most of you rappers be actors man/Go M.I.A when I find little madison/Stay at the Ritz-Carlton, this not the Radisson/Just took a blue one, 'bout to take the red pill/Purple thoughts in my brain, hope it don’t spill/Stay with a nerd just like Urkel Jaleel/Fresh just like Carlton, I kill em with Will" - Lil Uzi Vert
"Yeah, fam, Pharrell on Mars with my fellow stars/I'm like lightning striking on a metal rod/Say, 'Hello, God' on the double bars/So dammit, Amex, I got a yellow card" - Pharrell
"Yellow card, yellow card/Damn, P, I need a yellow card/I am from The Root like where the petal start/I had to push like a pedal" - Lil Uzi Vert
"Yeah, you never stayed in Kailua/I put chanel on my shooter/Flooded my chain and it's Gucci/I don't want that girl she moody/I’m basically saying that I’m cooler/Get Dior discounts from my cougar/Back in the six-grade I got them bad grades/I was in love with my tutor" - Lil Uzi Vert
"Turn that girl into a bad bitch/Turn that girl into a savage/And you might think she's outstanding/Make that girl go through practice/Take three Xannies like a hat trick/Take another pill for that magic/These models ’bout to get ratchet" - The Weeknd
"I make it rain, you can have it/I make it disappear like magic/I, I met that girl right at Magic/Left with her and a big bag, and/She slippery, losin' traction/You keep listenin' to your mad friends/Your last old enough he might die, friend/So that guy, to me, he a has-been" - Lil Uzi Vert
"Heard she talk to a ball player but you know I keep it all player/And I heard he ain't a star player/I'm not worried I'm a hard worker/I'm in outer space on Mars faded/I'm not tryna make it R rated/But my niggas look like Darth Vader"
"If you got hurt, yeah, I got hurt, yeah, I got bruised too/That's the main reason why I had to choose you/If you got options I got options, baby, who you?/I got one that's on my line that look like new new/She got ass just like a zebra on a zoo too/So basically what I'm saying, I'm not scared to lose you"
"Put money ahead and I move with the bread, but I do not need a toaster/Diamond, water, I'm the boatster/Pull up right there in the roadster/She ain't want me, I was so hurt/I was broke just like Joe Dirt/Where you from, throw it up, nigga/I'm from the lowest part of Earth"
"You got the best advice but I won't call/I know I'm grown so I do not need y'all/And if i get locked up, mama change the law/You fix everything so that’s what I thought/When I was small mama made me tall/Even though I'm daddy pup she still gon’ wipe my paws/Don't care about this money don't care about them cars/Lose my mama that's a problem you can’t solve"
"I like the way that she treat me/Gon' leave you, won't leave me, I call it that Casanova/She say I'm insane, yeah/I might blow my brain out/Xanny, help the pain, yeah/Please, Xanny, make it go away/I'm committed, not addicted, but it keep control of me/All the pain, now I can't feel it/I swear that it's slowin' me, yeah"
"I don't really care if you cry/On the real, you shoulda never lied/Shoulda saw the way she looked me in my eyes/She said, 'Baby, I am not afraid to die'/Push me to the edge/All my friends are dead/Push me to the edge"
