Lil Uzi Vert and Rich The Kid Get Into Heated Confrontation in Philadelphia
Both rappers were in the City of Brotherly Love to perform at The Roots Picnic on Saturday (June 2), when it appears Uzi pulled up on Rich on a street corner. In video captured of the incident, Uzi confronts RTK who is standing behind a barrier surrounded by his people.
"What we doing?" Uzi asks, apparently seeing if the fade imminent.
"I'm trying to find out, you jumped out the car," either Rich or a member of his posse responds off camera.
"It don't matter. Why you acting crazy? I don't got nothing to say, bro. Let's do it," Uzi replies.
Another video shows the two crews in what appears to be a Starbucks. That's when things get physical. In the footage, Rich seems to get swung on by a number of people causing him and another man to jump over the counter into the employee work space. The video stops shortly afterward.
The "New Freezer" rapper later commented on the melee on social media. "Niggas pulled up and did what? Did what?" he questioned, while showing his jewelry was still intact. "Walk around Philly like this. Niggas pulled up and did what?"
Uzi and Rich's problems seem to date back to Rich taking exception to Uzi not signing with his Rich Forever label. Rich has really carried the beef on, dropping the track, "Dead Friends," where he takes shots at Uzi. He even buries a Lil Uzi lookalike in the visual.
When Uzi was asked about the beef last month, he didn't appear to be sweating it. "Bless Rich The Kid and his whole family and stuff," he told reporters.
We guess things changed.
