Hail Uzi, the true champion of a christless holiday season. The recent Grammy nominee has announced the A Very Uzi Christmas mini-tour in celebration of his phenomenal 2017. Tickets for the inverted cross-filled trek, which sadly doesn't hit every single venue on the face of the earth, are available starting Tuesday via Lil Uzi Vert's official site.
The Very Uzi Xmas run kicks off Dec. 15 at the Anthem in Washington D.C. before making two-night stops at Terminal 5 in New York City and House of Blues in Boston. Uzi will also bring the holiday-esque proceedings to his hometown of Philadelphia Dec. 22. More info is available here. One Very Uzi Christmas concert went down in Philly in 2016.
Uzi is nominated for Best New Artist and Best Rap Performance at the 60th annual Grammy Awards. As recently revealed by Vampire Weekend frontman and Grammy voter Ezra Koenig, there was also a push to get Uzi's breakout hit "XO Tour Llif3" a nomination.
As I've stated multiple times, and will continue to do so until it all becomes reality, Uzi is set to follow the underappreciated Luv Is Rage 2 with a foray into full-on rock territory. The album will follow his usual freestyle approach to writing. "It's kinda hard for it to be bad," Uzi told Zane Lowe back in August whilst playing with fire. "I don't even be looking at my songs like they're good or bad. Remember, they're my children. So when I put 'em out, someone accepts them."
