Philly’s Lil Uzi Vert is all but guaranteed to be one of the next to blow. I’m still relatively new to his story, but I remember hearing his name buzzing crazy at SXSW a few months back; it seemed like every showcase he appeared on, he stole the show. I didn’t happen to see him live that week, but later that month, I heard an unreleased track that he’s on with a few other big names, and it’s still the best record I’ve heard all year. Whenever that comes out, Uzi will be a household name. Yes, it’s that serious.
But for now, listen to his latest single that he dropped earlier this week called “Horse.” It’s a murky banger produced by MaalyRaw that’s fueled by Uzi’s relentless flow and an incredible “giddy-up” ad-lib repeated throughout. This is an easily repeatable track, but at the same time, clearly just a hint of what Uzi’s got in the stash. Give “Horse” a spin below, and stay tuned for much more.
