Producer: Pharrell Williams
Album: Luv Is Rage 2 (2017)
The most nostalgia-inducting moment on Luv Is Rage 2 is hearing that patented Pharrell four count on the beginning of "Neon Guts." Up until this point in his career, Lil Uzi had only worked with artists that were considered his contemporaries. So, hearing him on record with an artist with the magnitude and icon status of Pharrell Williams was, to put it simply, a moment. This collaboration signified a moment where one of the true legends in hip-hop embraced Uzi, lending him some credibility in his role of the next one up. The starry production truly feels otherworldy and "higher than Elon Musk." It's as if Pharrell reached back into a stash of vintage Neptunes productions and gifted us a collaboration we didn't know we wanted, but it turned out we needed.
