Album: Lil Uzi Vert vs. the World
The smart money is on Lil Uzi Vert to be the next Atlanta-bred rap superstar. For all the talent he possesses on his own, he owes a good deal of his buzz to a well-maintained Rolodex. The video for “You Was Right” drops Uzi, et al. into an Alice in Wonderland tea party, which is fitting: Metro’s beat is spare, but unsettled enough to feel foreign. The producer's great strength right now is that he employs a diverse array of percussion tools; not only can he vary the tempos and moods of his beats, but he can transpose himself across different sounds and drum kits.
