Lil Uzi Vert just dropped a new video for his smash hit "XO Tour Llif3." Previously, the track had been given a simple animated video with illustrations by Andrew William Ralph.
Uzi's Luv Is Rage 2 debuted with 135,000 equivalent album units, knocking last week's champ—Brand New's Science Fiction—from the top spot on the Billboard 200. Uzi's debut bested fellow first-week entries from XXXTentacion, ASAP Mob, and Queens of the Stone Age.
Abloh also helmed the cover art for the album, which closes out with "XO Tour Llif3." In a recent interview with the Fader, Abloh opened up about how he and Uzi kicked off their artistic relationship. "I met Lil Uzi in 2013, it might have been," he said. "Me and my friends in New York were DJing a ton, finding ourselves, and getting booked in random cities. We went to Philly and were DJing this party, we didn't know what it was, it was called like 'Hamster Dance,' some weed festival in a nearly abandoned artist loft or warehouse."
At some point during this "Hamster Dance," Uzi took the stage. "Instantly we were friends," Abloh added.
Abloh will join Pharrell, Takashi Murakami, Jaden Smith, J Balvin, and Sarah Andelman on the host committee for this year's ComplexCon in Long Beach, California. The second annual edition of the festival runs Nov. 4-5 and features performances from N.E.R.D., Young Thug, Gucci Mane, and more. More information is available here.
