Lil Uzi Vert, Grammy-nominated harbinger of fire-grabbing, again enlisted his army of inverted crosses and general middle fingerness for a rousing performance at Terminal 5 in New York City Sunday night. In an act of sweeping generosity, Uzi used the opportunity to test out a previously teased new song on the worthy crowd.
The song, colloquially known among fans as "1600" and previously teased by Uzi as "Drip," continues the Luv Is Rage 2 chart-topper's pattern of soundtracking the lives of those most in tune with their surroundings.
In case you idiotically skipped our very necessary report on it last week, here's the snippet Uzi shared of the studio version of the track on Instagram Live last week:
Uzi will presumably keep the song in his set list for the remaining dates on his Very Uzi Christmas mini-tour, which hits Terminal 5 for a second night Monday before taking what is probably god's favorite stage setup ever to Boston and Philadelphia.
The new Netflix original movie Bright, starring Will Smith, also recently resulted in some fresh music from the Best New Artist nominee. Uzi linked up with Steve Aoki for "Smoke My Dope" on the David Ayer film's official soundtrack. For reasons not entirely clear, the track includes zero verses from Big Will.
